Submitted to the Embassy!!!

There's a happy dance
happening over here!

We were submitted to the Embassy today!

Which means...
at some point in the next few weeks 
we will hear about an interview with a birth family member...
and we will book our plane tickets for the week after that date!!

2 round trip...
and FIVE one-way!!

It's getting so
They ARE coming home!!
I am going to have TWELVE children at my dinner table!!

I'm not sure how I could ever be worthy of this kind of blessing!!

Thank you for your prayers...
it won't be long now!


  1. Congratulations! So excited for you! I still have hope that we'll all end up in Addis together. :) We were submitted just a week before you.

  2. So, so happy for all of you! I'll be praying for a speedy embassy process!!!

  3. So excited for you! That is fantastic news!!

  4. Prayers of thanksgiving for you and your sweet ones waiting to come home! You are such an inspiration! Praying that God will orchestrate the details in His amazing ways!

  5. I've been reading your blog for a couple of months now, and am finally going to comment. :) That is such wonderful news and your children are SO beautiful! They'll be home in time for all of the fun of late Spring and Summer. So happy for you. I am praying for you as you fast.

  6. Wow! How very fantastic! The Holy Spirit has brought you and your family to mind almost every time I'm preparing food (since you announced your fast). I'm truly celebrating with you and will keep praying as you wait for more news and make travel plans.

  7. I'm so terrified yet thrilled for you! I pray for you and your family whenever I check your blog. I have to say we're at the end of ten hard months since we brought our two home, but your girls are so stinkin cute I think I want to go back for more!

  8. tears, tears and more tears of happiness and to be very honest a quick jolt of jealousy.......Chrissy, you are so deserving!! Congratulations.... I will continue to follow your journey and live vicariously through yours as our family STILL patiently waits for our referral.

    Random question...will you be by AHope? If so, let me know....I may have a BIG BIG favor.


  9. Congrats!!! Huge won't be long now!

  10. Aww! I'm so happy for you. Quite the change… Suddenly having so many new people around the table, but I'm sure you've dreamed of it and imagined it enough that it will seem like they are all right where they're supposed to be in the family.

  11. Congratulations! What a blessed dinner table you will have!!!

  12. It was WONDERFUL meeting you at Created for Care! I am going to be praying for you to get these kiddos home SOON!!!! You and your family are an amazing testiment to God's love!!
