Words cannot describe the wait.  Nor can words describe hearing the news that we passed.  It is official, they are ours. I am a mama.  A very thankful/weepy/giddy mama. 

Thank you for praying them home.  We have approximately 4-6 weeks for an embassy date, so 3.5-5.5 weeks until travel, when we can finally fill our arms with these beauties! 

Please continue to pray for Birthfather. He just made a two day trek and left his six kiddos at home to be interviewed by a judge, relinquishing his rights to his beautiful babies.   

Introducing the Girls (By sampling of pictures)

Pictures: Group 1 (weighing in at approximately 3 and 4 pounds)

Group 2 of pictures: weighing in at 5 and 6 pounds

Group 3: Pictures taken late January
Group 4 Pics: Adia
Held by caretakers, this is after the girls have their carepackages.  They are wrapped in the blankets we sent. The caretaker on the left is the one we see the most often in pictures. Adia is in the pink, Jada in the green, you can see that both of them have "mohawks" because of early bloodwork done.

Sleeping in the same bassinet.  Adia has used a pacifier and Jada never has.
Last Picture received 2-18
They are getting so big!  I think Jada has a double chin! 

Babies we are coming! 

Please keep praying for us and these babies.

My soul magnifies the Lord.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I hope we can travel together, Amy and Jon - we really look forward to meeting you, and know that getting to know you will be one of the joys of that special time - can hardly wait - but will have to really kick it into high gear in order to be ready in time! :-) Enjoy some "peace" time in the waiting - life's never the same, again - but you'll not want to go back! :-)

So looking forward to meeting you both,

Erin and Pat
