No Objection!

We're approved!

The Rwanda government apparently feels we are an A-OK family for one of their precious little boys.
We are thrilled! It is really going to happen, we will have 4 little kids running around!
I already took Caroline for her Passport pictures, I can't believe she, at 7, will be going to Africa to bring home a little brother!
Lucy has been telling anyone who will look at her.
Our family is all abuz right now with preparations. Bunk beds and pulling down boy clothes...

By far and away the best prep-work I will have, is going to this retreat, Created for Care, Feb 4-6th. All adoptive moms, some with major experience (zillions of kids). The speakers are going to be wonderful and the breakouts are perfect for preparation. More about that later...

For now, we are just so thankful to be over the MAJOR hurdle!

Thank you Rwanda, I can't wait to know you.

Lift up your eyes all around, and see;
they all gather together, they come to you;
your sons shall come from far,
and your daughters shall be carried on the hip.
Then you shall see and exult,
because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you"
Isaiah 60:4-5
