Praising Jesus

So last night, the gates of heaven were stormed by friends and family from all over the world for our sweet boy, Mikiyas... And I am SO happy and in awe of our amazing Father who has defended this child of His who is an orphan no more... After an almost 2 year journey, this chapter is finally about to close. At 8:59am, God answered all those prayers! I got an e-mail declaring that they decided to clear Mikiyas to come home!! I immediately began to shake and dialed Michael's number and when he answered, I burst into tears. Tears of joy. Tears of overwhelming emotion that has been held up in my heart for weeks. Tears of just pure awe in our Lord... Michael, of course, was afraid that it was bad news, and as I choked out that Mikiyas was coming home, I bawled even more. Those words, "Mikiyas is coming home", even brought Michael to tears (although, I'm sure he won't admit it to anyone else!)...

I cannot praise and thank God enough for what He has done for us... THANK YOU, LORD!!! We will NEVER have to say goodbye to our boys again (at least not until college. but yeah... Not even gonna think about that!)! They will FOREVER be in our family. AMAZING!

So... we will be leaving Friday night and getting to Ethiopia Sunday morning. Sunday, August 26 will be our "Gotcha Day"!!! Then we'll attend our embassy appointment on Monday afternoon (early Monday morning your time) and then will leave Ethiopia Thursday night and get to Tampa on Friday night at 7:30. Anyone local is welcome to come to the airport join the homecoming party!!! :)

Again, thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has gotten us to this point. Your prayers and support are SO appreciated! The next post you'll see will probably be from Ethiopia!!!!!!!!!! WAHOO!!
