Submitted to Embassy!!

Our adoption case worker called today to let us know that our file has been submitted to the U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. They will review it and then let us know if a.) they need additional information/investigation into our case or b.) everything looks great, in which case they will schedule a visa appointment. We should hear back from them in a week or so. Once our case has been cleared by the Embassy, we could expect to travel in 1-2 weeks. So if everything goes perfectly, we could be headed back to Ethiopia at the beginning of November!!

We are so anxious to see our boys again - it really feels like we are beginning to see a light at the end of the tunnel! This journey has been a long, although amazing one, and it is really hard to believe that we're on the home stretch! I sincerely want to thank you all for your support, encouragement, donations and prayers. They are deeply appreciated, and mean far more to us than you'll ever know. May God richly bless all of you!


  1. YAY!!! I am so excited for ya'll! Can't wait to hear when you will be going back to bring your sweet boys home!!!

  2. So exciting!! Praying that everything gets through so that you can have your boys in your arms again!
