Hooray!!! I've checked your and your parents' blog like 10 times today... The wait for the last court date for us was the hardest wait of all. I'm so happy for you that you can now focus on going to get the kids! I believe the twinettes are in the same home as our Zoe, so we'll celebrate with them when we see them next week! =) Much love to you all!

Ellie ~~ I'm sitting here with tears of joy rolling down my face. Your patience has truly been challenged - and, of course, your rose to accepting it! I am a faithfilled woman -- but I must say that was a little scary! How blessed those babies are to have you and your family on the way to loving them (even more!) Hopefully you will be able to kiss our Kozit for us there in Addis -- We cannot wait to have her! Good luck with your packing -- your immediate future is beyond all expectations!

Congratulations My Sweet Ellie! It has finally happened. You are a big sister again. Thank you for all of your prompting, encouragement, support, help, research, prayers, babysitting, and for being the most precious, loving and wonderful daughter a mother could ask for. I could not do this without you my sweet Ellie. May the LORD continue to pour out his blessing on you and show you to be faithful to HIM! Now the next journey begins...I love you with all of my heart!! Your blessed MAMA!
