Eli Is Coming Home!!

We found out Monday that we cleared the US Embassy and have final clearance to bring our sweet baby boy home!!

We are so excited and so thankful to be at this point.

Eli will be in our arms two weeks from today and home just in time for Thanksgiving.

The girls picked this out for their baby brother!

Can't wait for him to be home wearing this.

Our most precious Thanksgiving gift ever!

Making Progress

So we're one step closer to bringing Eli home.  

We've been waiting for an interview with the Embassy in Ethiopia to be scheduled with a person associated with our son's case and it was finally scheduled today for Monday October 22nd at 1:00 pm 
(6:00 am our time).

We could be cleared to pick him on the day of the interview, or it could take a little longer.  We are praying to clear with no delays and be able to have our boy home in a few short weeks!

Excitement is high around here!  It all still feels like a far off dream, but the dream is about to come true!

Our kids are memorizing Psalm 107:1 right now and I think it is so fitting.  God is good and we give him all the thanks!

"Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love endures forever."
