I know a lot of you are wondering about an adoption update. And we finally have some more exciting news! We got a call yesterday with an official court date – the date that our little girl officially becomes a part of our family!
Our court date is set for June 15th. So this means that we will be flying to Johannesburg, South Africa in 4 DAYS!! We will meet our little girl the day after we get there, or June 8th. And one week later she is fully ours! After our court appointment, we will immediately fly from Johannesburg with our little girl to Cape Town for Home Affairs Processing. We will then fly back to Johannesburg for final interviews with the US Embassy, and then we can fly home! All of that will hopefully only take 4-5 weeks. We are shooting to be back in the US at the end of July.
We will try to keep the blog updated as best as we can, but we just aren’t sure what our internet access will be like and we won’t have a computer along. We will do our best though and plan to post pictures to facebook/instagram often!
Many of you have already asked, so here is how you can be praying:
- Safety for us as we are driving/flying all over the place!
- That our little girl would attach to us quickly and bonding can start to happen smoothly.
- That God would have His hand on our paperwork and all the processing that needs to take place before we can all come home.
- Pray for our boys while we are away. Eli is already starting to shut down a bit and become quite sad. This is hard for little guys to understand and comprehend, but I know they will have so much fun with family while we are away. Just pray that their little hearts would be protected, as it absolutely tears me apart to think about leaving them. Saying goodbye is gonna be a hard, hard day.
We are about to set off on a huge journey that God has lead us to in His timing. We have no doubt we are right where God wants us, and although it is scary, we are stepping out in faith to see what big things He has in store. It’s not about us – it’s about His kingdom!
