We wait and wait and wait and wait and wait…
And then there’s a day like yesterday – when great things happen and the tears flow.
Yesterday afternoon we received three pieces of news that have us doing the happy adoption jig.
We have passports for Wilna and Lovence!
Wilna Colopy. Lovence Colopy. It’s enough to give us goosebumps!
We also received the adoption decree for Laurentz. For those of you who know what a journey this has been, it’s a miracle to see his name: Laurentz Claury Colopy.
Goosebumps and tears!
And finally, Wilna and Lovence have been submitted to USCIS. That means we should get the news that it’s time to pick them up in about 5 – 7 weeks.
Goosebumps, tears and great joy!
We are so grateful to God for this wonderful news, so excited, so nervous, so full of every type of emotion you could possibly imagine.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your prayers, encouragement and love. It’s made all the difference on this long journey. I will update you on this blog as we get closer and ultimately bring them home. I will also be doing video blogs on YouTube of our family’s journey. So many people have prayed them home, we want to continue to share the ride! While we will protect the kids (allowing them to tell their own stories in their own timeframe and honoring their feelings), I will be sharing the parental side of adoption and including short, fun clips of the kids. You can check out our first preparation videos here and here. Subscribe after you watch if you would like to see our homecoming (which to keep from overwhelming the kids, will be documented by video but very low key!)
Thanking God for you and for this exciting new step!
Oh the JOY!! So immensely happy for you!!
Thank you!! 🙂
Jesus still walks the Earth, in this case He does so with baby steps to bring the little children home.
Sooooooooo happy for you. Get lots of sleep NOW! Praying for safe journey and healthy kids.
I know! We will be sleeping in at random for the next six weeks… just to prepare! 🙂
Wonderful exciting times for you. Know you will enjoy ever minute of your new journey. God be with you.
Thank you so much!
WOW – A SUPER GOD WINK DAY YOU HAD!!!
Continued prayers for the days and weeks ahead to be peaceful and filled with God’s abundance of blessings.
Thank you so much!
Oh, Praise God! Oh, Praise His Holy Name! Oh, Praise His Will be done!
Yes, I will continue to pray for you all.
“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of His glory He may allow you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. That you, being rooted and grounded in love, may comprehend what is the breadth and length and height and depth of the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with the fullness of God.” [Ephesians 3:14-19]
Thank you, thank you! Love that Scripture!
What a roller coaster ride you all have been on! I’m sure all those days on your knees have been worth it. We are all still praying for your family and enjoying the you tube videos. Soon you may not have time to entertain us :-). God bless your little family that is about to become bigger.
Praise the Lord! All things in God’s time. So overjoyed for all of you. I will continue to pray them home. God Bless You!
Soli Deo Gloria!
