We Have a Court Date

May 19th is the day.

If we pass, we travel three weeks later. Possibly around the week of June 8th, which happens to be Dustin's 40th birthday. Hopefully we are celebrating in Ethiopia!

Praising God for His perfect timing in all things.

H Turns Five Today

Happy 5th Birthday H!  We woke up this morning celebrating this day for you.  Aunt Shelley sent an email early this morning and was the first to wish you a happy birthday.

Our hearts have fallen head over heals in love for you Sweet One.  We talk of you and your sisters often.  We are busy painting bedrooms and getting the house ready.  We ordered bunk beds for you and Sage to share a room.  He is super excited.

We are thankful for you.  We are thankful for the day you were born.  We are thankful for the day when we can meet and become family.  Happy Birthday!
