Good News...Praise God!!

We are finally, officially, Caden and Avery's family!  The judge approved our adoption on Monday, October 29th!   YAAAAYYYYYY!!  We are so excited and so blessed!!  We got the news as we were driving to work Monday morning.  We were high-fiving each other and shouting, "THANK YOU GOD!" as we drove down the interstate.  It was an awsome feeling of excitement and relief.  It has been such a long wait and we were worried that there might be more delays.  It has now been 7 months since we last held our babies and the wait has been almost unbearable at times.  We have felt the presence of God through this whole journey; through every piece of paper, every email, every fundraising effort, and every minute of  the wait, no matter how difficult the process became, we knew that He was there, holding our hands through it all.  If all goes well, Avery and Caden will be home for Christmas!  What a wonderful gift!!

We have been keeping ourselves busy since school started.  Between sports schedules, dance, and even a wedding for one of our crew, there is never a dull moment in our busy household. 

Please keep us in your prayers as we wait to hear a travel date.  We are almost fully funded so pray also that the last bit of money needed will be raised quickly.  It shouldn't be long now so check back here often.  I will post our travel date as soon as we are notified!



  1. Congratulations! You deserve it! Praying your can travel to bring your babies home very soon and that you have a safe trip, and they transition well into your family :)

  2. Congratulations on the blessing of your two new children! Praying the rest of the process goes well.
