Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.

Isaiah 43:5

This morning, I woke up to the best news--"THE EMBASSY SAYS YES"!!!

Yes, we can come and pick up our girl! I'm so excited that we've finally passed this little hurdle and will soon have Rahel home with us.

God has gathered us up in His perfect timing from the west so we can bring our sweet girl home from the east and we are so grateful!

Ethiopia-here we come!!


  1. Praise God! Rahel is coming home! So exciting. Let me know if you need any help. Heather

  2. That's great news! She is beautiful! Do you travel soon?

  3. Jessica, what wonderful news! Praise God! Safe and smooth travels to you!

  4. Congratulations! We are just so excited for you ALL! That missing spot in the truck, at the table, and the homeschooling desk will finally be filled. YEAH!! And Rahel will not be the only one left at the care center anymore. What an awesome reunion that will be for all those kids in FL too. It's just so amazing that they will all have each other nearby. Prayers for safe travels. Are you going to Kind Hearts at all?

  5. Hallelujah!! That's the BEST news all week!! Go get your precious daughter! :-)

  6. Congratulations! We just accepted a referral through IAG and also sponsor a child at Trees of Glory. I'm sure I don't have enough time to send a letter to our boy, Tameru, at TOG; but maybe you can give him a hug from his family in America. We also have 6-going on 7-and homeschool. Many Blessings and safe travels to you.
