Do You Believe in Miracles?? Cause .......

OMG....I can't believe I'm even typing this:
WE PASSED!! It is a miracle...we really DID PASS!!!!! I'm completely in shock!! My hubby just called at 2:30 a.m. OUR TIME...I had the phone right beside me...and he said those two words: WE PASSED!! And, I nearly passed out!!

***I truly can't thank God ENOUGH for this miracle of PASSING COURT the first time!! I can't thank you ALL ENOUGH for the around the clock prayers that have been lifted up for our case and specifically OUR SON!! And, I can't thank CCI ENOUGH for their hard work and dedication to their children....OMG...I'm just still in shock!!!!

***Oh, my..Oh, my...Oh, my....trying to pull it together here.....Wow....would you like to meet our new son??? Because we can't wait to show YOU!!!!

May we PROUDLY introduce you to our NEW SON:

Westel Pawlos J.
"Wes"


From a tiny boy so sick and small that we feared he may not survive...to a sweet growing boy that is beating the odds and proving that God has a GREAT plan for his life... A life that was meant to include being our 6th child....OUR BELOVED SON!!!

Praising God, Praising God, Praising God to the fullest!!! He is officially OURS!! My heart is about to explode with happiness!! Thank you AGAIN to EVERYONE...OUR PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED!! More soon :) Praise Jesus..WE PASSED!!!! Happy Monday to you all, kj

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11

  92. Your son is just precious! I have been following your blog for a year, but was never in touch... Although we run a non-profit supporting orphans, separately, our family is in process of an adoption from Ethiopia. With all the changes in the adoption system there, it is encouraging to see that little ones will still make their way home. Congratulation and blessings!
