Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

At last the moment we have been waiting for... This afternoon at 5:30 we had our audiencia (hearing) that allowed us to bring our three babies home to live with us!! We are absolutely thrilled to have these three home with us. It was exactly one year ago that we said goodbye, for what we thought was the last time, to David and Audrey. It was one of the hardest days of my life. I remember weeping all day long. Clara told me that day, that saying goodbye to David and Audrey was the hardest thing she had ever had to do in her nine years of life. Now here we are a year later welcoming these that we said goodbye to, to our home for forever! We also have another "bonus baby", Peter, with us too! God is so good to us. We are overwhelmed with thanksgiving to Him who has made this possible.
After our hearing we went out to dinner with the Casa de Amor volunteers to celebrate. It appears that we have lost our camera, hard to believe right before this momentous occasion! Thankfully, the volunteers took pictures for us. We felt like celebrities with all those cameras pointed at us! Thank you, Hannah, Sarah, Danyelle, Isabelle, and Michelle for celebrating with us tonight!!

It would be impossible to thank by name each one that has been a part of this adoption. Please know that we are thankful to each of you that have prayed for us throughout this process. Thank you also for giving both of your time and financially. We could not be here in Bolivia adopting these precious babies without you. We are so very, very thankful to you all!!!
