Hello Friends and Family. We hope your Christmas Season was special and blessed. We were way too busy this year and didn't feel we had enough time with God. We don't want that to happen again. UPDATE: We've mail many of you pictures and a little info on our children. They are precious. We have learned so much more about them as all the investigations have been complete. We have signed official affidavits for their adoption. Our attorney in Africa should be receiving them any day and will go directly to the courts to request our Court Date!!!!!!!!!! Yikes! Tears me up just thinking about it. We are told our first trip to Africa will be for a good week to a week and a half to go through the court proceedings. We'll return home for approx 4-6 weeks while court finishes the adoption then we fly back to order our children's visas and passports. This trip might take a good two weeks so I might fly over first and Brian will meet up with me when it's closer to the time we fly home with the children. So please keep us in prayer as we finish this oh so long adoption journey. We need approx 10K to finish with the court cost, visas, passports, and travel. We'll keep praying and asking for donations, but how emotional and exciting it is to finally see the finish line. God is good and we feel Him close. We will let you know as soon as we've received the court date. Praying for maybe February! Blessings and love to you all. ~~Bri and Deb.
