Here we go again.... Take 2!


We are happy to announce that the Laughner Family is once again growing! We are going back to Ethiopia! We were accepted back into the program and will soon be starting our dossier. We are requesting a 4-6 year old little girl!

To answer some of the questions....
Yes we will have enough kids to be the Brady Bunch!
No we are not trying for our own baseball team.
Yes this is the last one! Yes we have said this before.
Michael and Lori will be traveling to Ethiopia to meet our princess!
Yes, Tom is OK with adopting one more.
Yes Michael has agreed to play with Barbies and Littlest Pet Shop on the plane.
Yes we have to go through the whole process again, with a shorter home study, and a few discounts.
Yes the referral should come quicker because of requesting an older child.
Whether or not we are crazy is debatable.... it depends on who you ask. Some say yes, some say we just still have love to share.

Please pray for our family during this process and the daughter that God has chosen for our family!

I am overjoyed for you guys, and incredibly jealous. Praise God for your faithfulness to him and to His children. You have enough love for all 4.8 million orphans in Ethiopia ... I will be praying for you as you start in your journey again. I'm sad to not be joining you at this moment in time. Love you guys! Thanks for letting us share in your second journey to ET!
