A Brief, Important Update

We completed the paperwork to include two children!

We will, Lord willing, be bringing home two kiddos at the same time instead of just one! This decision was made with much prayer, council, and thought, but we are excited about the possibilities ahead. Nothing is for certain, and He can redirect us if He chooses.

With a sibling group, our next (and last!) set of fees do increase substantially. Specifically, to a total of $11,000, not including airfare and other travel expenses. We are continuing to trust God to supply the need in His timing. He has been faithful in the past and will remain faithful.

Our wait time should not increase substantially because of this change. The children that we will be bringing home will both be under 5 at the time of referral. They may or may not be birth siblings, but they will certainly be siblings when they join our family. There will be at least one boy, and at least one of them will be over two. It is a broad request, but we look forward to seeing what God has in mind for us!

Thanks for sharing in our joy!
