and He will also bring it to pass."
1 Thessalonians 5:24
A friend shared this Scripture verse with me this morning before our agency called. It is most definitely fitting. God is true to all of His promises.
It is with great JOY that we introduce our new son, Mesfin Berhanu!!! It took three different court dates, but last night, while we slept, we passed court!!!
God is SO good!!! We are so thankful for this incredible adventure God has brought us on and know that it will only get better!
We should know our court date next week and hope to travel to Ethiopia mid-to-late January to bring our precious boy home.
Don't you just LOVE his big, beautiful eyes?!? I told you it would be worth the wait. If only you could hear his sweet accent. :-)
We are thankful to have had several friends travel this past year and meet Mesfin. One of them asked him if he wanted to keep his Ethiopian name, or if he wanted an American name as well.
We still have to confirm with him in person ourselves, but at this point, our plan is to name him Luke Mesfin Ivey. Our desire is to welcome him into our family and do all that we can to keep the memory of his beloved birth parents alive for him.
We are just so full of joy and thankful for God's blessing of another precious son.
More photos and news will be forthcoming, but I couldn't wait another moment to share our exciting news!!!
We are so very thankful to all of you for your faithful and persistent prayers!!! May God bless you abundantly. Especially those who are going through difficult seasons or waiting for good news yourself. In the midst of our joy, our hearts are aching with you for breakthrough and healing.
You are loved and treasured, my Friend!
God is good, all the time, and I am LIVING A BLESSED LIFE! May you experience the richest of His blessings this Christmas season.
A smiling new Mommy,
