Travel is booked!

I have been so busy the past few weeks I have had no time to update this blog and say that we are now ready to travel.  We got the call that all of our boys paperwork is in.  He is legally our son and we can't wait to go and meet him.

We leave this coming week and will be gone for 3 weeks.  I'm excited to have him in my arms but am dreading the long flight with our two kids to get there!  Please pray it all goes smoothly.  There has been a lot of stress lately due to the fact that I wasn't aware South Africa has a new law that requires extra paperwork to get in and out of the country for all minors.  Mostly it is simple (long form birth certificates for your children that show their parents names on it) but if you are an adopted child it gets more complicated.  It honestly makes me mad since my son is a Canadian citizen and he shouldn't have to bring court documents from years ago but I believe this law is in an effort to stop child trafficking.  Anyways, please pray that our documents are suffice (we do not have the original court doc that they want, only a copy) and that we are not help up anywhere.  My stomach is in knots over this!  Also, pray that Solomon's Canadian passport comes in time for our flights out!

I can't wait to post a picture of us together as a family of FIVE for the first time!


thanks for following along.
