It’s official!!

Friday we received great news that our recommendation letter was done and that our adoption was complete and final by the Ethiopian courts!!

Levi Teshale is officially our son!

Our favorite pic of me holding him. Isn’t he beautiful? 

He is such a happy boy. And a snuggler! He loves to lean in close. I cannot wait until we have him home.


Now what?

We wait for a birth certificate, adoption decree, and other paperwork to be done to be submitted to the US Embassy. We then wait for their clearance. Typically they ask for additional paperwork before clearance is granted. We are hoping/praying for a quick process!

Thank you all for your prayers and those who have been on the bumpy journey with us. I am amazed at God’s sovereignty. He really does know best!
