Introducing...

...Our new son!

That's right, we got a referral this week of the most precious, beautiful, baby boy! His name is Eftalem, and he will be two months old tomorrow.





















We were a bit surprised to receive a referral of a boy, since we had specifically requested a girl this time. It is so amazing how quickly God opened up our hearts to this little guy. We couldn't be more in love with him!

As for the timing of everything; his three-month waiting period will be over on December 12, so we hope to get through court soon after that. We hope and pray that we will be traveling some time in January to bring him home!

CONGRATULATIONS! Shana I'm SO thrilled for you!

It'll be so neat for you guys to see Emma as a big sister to a younger brother--we have so enjoyed that with our daughter. She is so close to her brothers and she's only known them since February.

I am just so happy for you, God is so amazing, and truly does work all for the good.

Wow!! That is so wonderful.

We had the same thing happen w/ our second child. I have a daughter and we requested a girl (but domestic, not intl). We got a son instead (but to be fair, they thought he was a girl.....).

Boys are so much fun. I am so happy for you!

Congratulations! He is BEAUTIFUL!

I wanted to share with you that we understand the pain you have been going through--we lost a 4 month old baby girl to meningitis (she was waiting for us in Haiti). We were devastated! We received a new referral a few days after our baby died. I was glad to have a new referral, but also struggled with it in some ways. I was so heart-broken over our first baby's death, that it was hard to rejoice in the news of another baby. I was afraid I would always feel a little sad about how she came to be in our family. We've been privilaged to visit her in Haiti twice now, and the bond I feel with her is intense. I am so thankful that we've been blessed to have her in our lives, and while I still feel sad over the death of our 1st baby, I cannot imagine life without our new little one. I wish you the same blessing. Your son is handsome!

Best,
Wendy

We are so happy to have a new nephew. He is just beautiful. It will be fun for Lucas to have a cousin so close to his age to play with:) Morgan has been practicing saying "Eftalem" and she and Sammy are very excited for Emma to have a baby brother.
