Fried

We got it'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are overjoyed. We can all leave together!!!!!!

Pats computer is fried we think. Sending this from my sisters iPad. Not sure I will be able to blog much from now on. Your emails/comments have been such an encouragement to me. Having a hard time understanding why some of these circumstances have to happen.

Thank you for your prayers

We fly to Ethiopia in 4 hours

One step closer to home

so happy for you. i cannot say i think things are going to get any smoother, it's the nature of the lovely beast that is large, international adoption families, but i know that the Lord will be with you and sustain you! I wish I were with you in ET. that is OUR second home...

Renee said...

Yay! Splitting up would have been so hard. I know it might seem like things aren't going well, but really, it would be incredibly rare to travel and not have any difficulties or setbacks. You guys are doing great! Praying for your time in Ethiopia!

YAY God for working a miracle on your behalf. Praying that He will give you eyes to see beyond the obstacles to the work that He is doing in your family! You have two new sons! Praying that HE continues to show off on your behalf in Ethiopia!!

i checked on my phone as soon as i woke up this morning - knowing that God was going to have worked a miracle! Anxious to hear now that you have arrived safely and will continue to pray that the VISA process goes smoothly. Am hoping that your days in Ethiopia can be restful and time spent just getting to know and love each other!!
