Sorry I haven't updated in some time, but it's been a busy week. Still having some issues with Josiah's recovery...you can check his CaringBridge website for more on that. A few things have happened on the adoption front in the past couple of weeks. First, we formally accepted our referral. Second, we were sent a few additional pictures of the kids...we can't wait until we pass court and are able to share them (and other information) online with you! Third, our Power of Attorney (POA) is working on getting our court date, so hopefully we'll know about that this week.
Two quick stories showing how God is continuing to bring our family together from around the globe:
This past week during one of his medical appointments, the nurse asked Josiah if he has any brothers and sisters. Without hesitating, he said "I have 2 brothers and 1 sister." Of course, he also added that his sister's name is "Adopt" (as this is what he's insisted we'll call her for many months now)...
Got an email from our POA this morning, and in it she said: "...and they know they are siblings now."
Silas and I fly to Cincinnati tomorrow so we can spend Christmas week with Shelly and Josiah. We're eager to have our family (at least 4 of us) reunited for the first time in almost a month...can't wait until our family (all 6 of us) is united for the first time ever!
