My dear daddy died in May 2005. He had cancer. Sometime during that next year I had a dream about him. He was dead in the dream but he had come back to talk to me. We were standing in the driveway of the house I live in now (my parent’s old house) and he told me “if he had to live his life over again, he would have studied more about the substance of things.” The dream was so vivid. I wrote it all down the next morning. Sometime over those next few weeks, I came across a book by Charles Capps called “The Substance of Things.” Well, of course I bought it. It’s a great book all about faith. A real easy read. And so the verse referenced below (Hebrews 11:1) has become pretty special.

It’s been 18 months since we began this adoption process. Our homestudy began in Sept 2009. Our dossier was submitted to Ethiopia in May 2010. Then we waited. At the end of February 2011 we got our referral (a picture and a medical report of a precious little girl named Selamawit.)
