They are ours!!!! We passed court!!!!!

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!!!!


We are thrilled to announce to the world our newest SON and DAUGHTER:

Nati and Mihret Wagenleitner!




It's been a long long journey and there are still a few more steps to go, but we could not be more excited to share our JOY with all of you- our friends and family!
We are now officially mom and dad to two more beautiful, amazing children and we are just so so blessed!
Easter Sunday 2011- The day we asked Nati and Mihret to be our son and daughter.
The day they said YES! :)

I have so much more I want to say, but of course the internet is not cooperating  very well for me to be able to write long posts or upload lots of pictures. There will be more to come, but I just want to say THANK YOU to all who have been praying for our family. We would not be here without you and it is obvious that we needed to be here today! Praise God!

We already have to say goodbye tomorrow and honestly I can't even think about how we are going to do that, except that God will give us the strength. This has been an eye-opening trip for us, as we have had Nati and Mihret staying with us. They are so happy and sweet, but it has been a challenge to try to communicate when we don't have a translator with us. We are definitely learning a lot more amharic than we ever have and we have a renewed sense of urgency to learn a lot more when we get home too!



Love you all! Post more when I get a chance!!!
