CASE CLEARED!!!

"Oh give THANKS to The Lord, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!" 
Psalm 105:1

We woke up to an email from the US Embassy in Addis this morning! CASE CLEARED!!!!! Praise God!!!! Tears are flowing, and my heart is about to burst with JOY! Our daughter is coming HOME!!!!!!! No set travel details yet, but it looks like we might have a visa appointment next week!  Just waiting on the Embassy to confirm our appointment date!  THANK YOU for praying!!!! God has heard and answered according to His perfect will and timing!!!!!

We started this adoption process in May 2010, and we saw her face in May 2013.  We then got on the waitlist in September 2010, and we're bringing her home in September 2013!  3 YEARS of growing our faith, seeing HIS faithfulness, and learning how to wait on the Lord!  His timing is always perfect!!!  It's worth it to wait on the Lord!  He is always good!!!



I did a little shopping yesterday for our now 13 month old baby girl, and couldn't resist these little shoes! Blue birds have been a sign for us of God's faithfulness on this adoption journey, and these are too cute and perfect!
