Our boy!!!


                                                           How blessed are we!?!

I should not have been surprised when we got the call that not only did we receive our MOWYCA letter, but also the judge had signed the decree!  Truly a miracle. On Tuesday we got an email from our agency saying "Sorry, the courts closed and you won't be getting your letter until October when they reopen." Hubby and I read the letter and we jokingly said " So your saying there's a chance!"  Normally reading a letter like that would have given me a mini break down, but I honestly thought that it could still come. And it did! On Friday we got the call!!

To God be the Glory!!

My God is bigger, My God is stronger, God you are higher then any other.......
And if our God is for us, then who can ever stop us.....
 (This song has been in my head since we were in Ethiopia)

What happens now:

They translate all the paperwork into English and then send everything to the US Embassy. From there the Embassy will get his visa and passport and other paper work ready and then when they do all that, WE GO GET HIM!!!
We have been told that it will take 4-6 weeks. So in September our BOY WILL BE HOME!!! I can not wait! There is still so much to do! I can't stop looking at pictures and remembering what it was like to kiss his squishy cheeks and smooth skin. <3

Soon precious Caleb mommy and daddy will bring you to your  home!!!

We still have money to raise... sigh... We still have the grant and if you are feeling led you can donate to the right and Lifesong will double it and you will get a tax receipt at the end of the year! Another HUGE blessing. We are praying through what to do next to help get our funds in.

Thank you all for your continue support. God has been so gracious  to surround us with such amazing people, most whom I have never even met.

Thank you Jesus for doing abundantly more then we ever expected or could even imagine.

Praising the Lord and counting our many blessings,


  1. Congratulations - he is truly a blessing. A BEAUTIFUL blessing!

  2. Praise God from Whom ALL Blessings Flow!!! I am so happy for you! I cannot wait to meet your sweet boy in person.

  3. Could he be any cuter?!:) I am so thrilled for you all! This child will truly be blessed joining this wonderful family!! So exciting!!!

  4. He sure is precious!!! Congratulations :)

  5. We just sang that song Sunday. This is so exciting and I can't believe that he's almost home. I think about that day you whispered to me at the gym that you guys were pretty set on adopting from Ethiopia. Doesn't seem that long ago, but what a journey it's been!
