Thanks for your support of our adoption journey. We would love for you to join us in praying that God would give us wisdom, patience and perseverance as we go through the process to adopt our children! We appreciate the many people walking this adoption journey with us in prayer! ~Jon & Bethany

Embassy paperwork!

We sent off our paperwork (called an i600) for baby R, now Malachi R., to the US embassy last week!!
We were told the embassy usually takes several weeks to process paperwork, then the Embassy in the DRC will do a background investigation (which could take weeks) and then we could travel to bring him home!!!!!!!
Please pray with us that our baby girl would pass court this week!!! There is a 30 day wait for a no-appeal certificate after she passes court. Pray that her case could be expedited through the embassy so we can bring them both home in one trip very soon!!

We can't wait to show off their beautiful faces! However (for those of you who are curious), we have decided not to post their pictures on the blog for their own safety & protection. We know that exhortion is a big problem in the DRC and do not want to put our children at risk of being kidnapped.

Officially Mommy to 2,
ps- Baby girl is now 6 months old! And Malachi (baby R) is almost 16 months...
Missing my babies.... Trusting that God will bring them home to us in His perfect timing. But asking in faith for that to be very SOON. I know He delights in giving good gifts to His children if we just ask, so we are asking. Daily.
