It's finally time to get our boys!!!

We are finally off to get our boys.  Sorry about the lack of updates!  We waited a long time for our travel date, a little over 8 weeks.  When it finally came, we were given less than 2 weeks notice.  Hey, no complaints here:)
We will be unable to post updates or photos of our trip until after we have court in-country.  This is to protect our boys and our adoption.  We have set up a secret group on Facebook to let friends and family see pictures of the boys and to follow our journey.  Feel free to comment below if you would like to be added. 

Today in church I was given a quote to read during Sunday School. 


"Quiet spiritual promptings may not seem as spectacular as visions or angelic visitations, but they are more powerful and lasting and life changing.  The witness of the Holy Ghost makes an impression on the soul that is more significant than anything you can see or hear."  True to the Faith p. 141

It really touched my heart and made me quite emotional.  We are here in this moment, ready to get two sweet little boys because of quiet spiritual promptings.  We have learned so much as a family in the past 9 months.  But the most important thing we have learned is that our Heavenly Father loves all of his children and he desires for them to have families.  He led us to seek out Edik and Justin and to bring them into our family.  We are so very grateful!  And, we are so grateful to all of you who have cheered us on and supported us both financially and with prayers.  Thank you!
