I am so thrilled and humbled and awed to tell you that WE FOUND OUR SON.
“I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.” 1 Samuel 1:27
Earlier this summer, Garrett and I laid eyes on our son for the very first time. Last Thursday, after 4 months of fervent prayer and an excruciating period of waiting, we learned that we have been granted the honor of being the parents of the most beautiful two year-old in the entire world.
We are so happy and so in love and so excited. We cannot wait to put our arms around him, to hear his laugh, and hold him close and tell him we love him. We can’t wait to have him home.
He turns two this week and we are praying that we will have him here to celebrate as he turns three next year. Until we have him in our arms, we won’t be able to share much about him. But you can trust that he is the cutest little boy in the world and a perfect fit for our family.
Little W will hopefully be home sometime next summer. We are waiting for our official, final approval from the Philippines, which could take 6-7 months. Soon after we receive that they will prepare him to travel and we will get the call we cannot wait for – our invitation to come to the Philippines! Please pray with us that the Philippines would process our paperwork quickly and we will find ourselves on the shorter end of the potential timeline.
There’s still some waiting left, but today we are celebrating that we have found our little boy and we are wishing him a happy, happy birthday.
Mahal kita, little one.
