11:55 EST Terra from America World called to tell us about our NEW SON!!!


He is 4 1/2 months old and weighs 11 pounds!

We were told that we will probably travel in 10-12 weeks if all goes well!

We are both shaking!!!

We are so blessed and are praising God for this little guy!!!!

Thank-you for your prayers! Please, pray that our court date will be soon and successful!

Congratulations! I am so very happy for you both! Travel mid to late August would be good. I can't wait to hear the whole story about the referral call. I hope William was at home when she called. Gabe only got my excited and barely coherent voice mail.

With Love,

HeatherV said...

So so exciting for you! Yeah.

Our little boys are only 2 months apart :) It will be so fun seeing them grow together :)

Will add a new prayer to my list - that ya'll get through court before they close and I get to remove one - that ya'll get your referral.

Do you stare at his picture non-stop. I have printed up so many and our son's pic is all over our house.

Beth said...

Congratulations!!! I'm trying to imagine all the emotions right now - excitment, relief, exhaustion (from the long wait), anticipation, anxiety for the court date. Praying you will get the date quickly.
