We Got Our Papers!

Just wanted to let everyone know. It hasn't been easy, but His House (so ironic right?) took AMAZING care of our children. Spent today at the doctor with Isaac and 3 other children who were sick or injured. Then got our Rx at Publix and headed back. They were waiting to take his photo and within 15 minutes I had my papers to take him with me!!! Of course we waited for rides and of course, I still have to ADOPT him. But I have 2 years to complete it. I've signed away my right to leave the country, even alone (OMG), without contacting DHS and will have so much red tape to go thru. But the amazing thing is he's here WITH me while i do it. Miracle after Miracle. He's absolutely the most precious child ever and i get to be his mama... :-)

i cannot say how very happy we are for you, for isaac, for all of your family. God truly has his hands on you all. God bless, take care, and try to get some rest. My sister has clothes for him, don't forget. So, shoot me an email on fb to let me know when you want them and when she can bring them to you. she lives in prairie village, ks--not far at all. i cannot wait to meet him!

We've been stalking your status all day waiting to hear. Baby Isaac is so lucky to have you as his mama! Love you both! It's been a long ride, take some extra special time for him and yourself to get settled!
