Getting to Know Us

I realize that many of you who are reading this will already know about our lives.....this post is mostly for those of you who don't know us or are getting to know us through this adoption journey. When reading other people's blogs I always love knowing a little bit about them, so here goes.....
We are Nathan and Kathy Garrison. We have been married for 16 years (am I really old enough for that!?!) and we have three great kids. Haley is 12 (7th grade) , Hayden is 11 (5th grade) and Emma is 9 (4th grade). Nathan works as a physical therapist at a local hospital and Kathy works as a second grade teacher at a Christian school.

We decided to adopt towards the end of April 08 and sent in our application to America World the first week of May. Things have been moving along pretty well with our paperwork process......we are currently waiting for our home study to be finished! We have requested an infant 0-12 mos. of either sex from Ethiopia. (although Hayden is really hoping for a boy!) We did not request a boy or a girl mostly because this entire adoption is really God's and we figure he has a plan of exactly who he wants to put in our family anyway!
