The title says it all. We are on our final step in getting G home.Currently, I’m in a hotel in Chicago waiting on a pizza for supper and in 12 hours we leave for the airport to get on a plane. Then, within 18 hours of landing, we’ll have our newest family member. Luke can’t stop talking about his new brother and we’ll all excited (and maybe a little nervous!)

Words can’t express how grateful we are in you all joining us on this journey. I told Julie on the drive over this afternoon that on one hand I feel like it has been forever ago since we first saw a picture on a waiting child website and we both agreed that God was telling us that he is our son. On the other hand, I can’t believe that we are so very close. Along the way, we have been blessed by the kindness and generosity of our friends and family. It’s been an incredible journey and we are blessed to have you along for the ride.

And most of all, thanks be to God, the father to the fatherless and guardian to the orphan. As much as we love both of our boys, we know that God loves them more. Thanks, Abba Father for letting us parent them and letting them be a part of our lives. 

Please continue to pray for

  • Hearts to be open as we transition and for patience to abound for everyone.
  • Safety for us as we travel and smooth travels.
  • And that we would have a hassle free visit to the US Embassy on Tuesday.
