This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Present for Abraão Lucas

Abraão Lucas' present is a beautiful handmade wooden airplane from Chicory Wood Products in Wisconsin. We are hoping that as he plays with this beautifully crafted toy, we will have conversations about the long plane ride ahead, what it will be like, and what that trip home means for him and for us as a family. Together we go home and together we remain--no matter what.

So, we've now found special, symbolic gifts for all of our children. We have clothes in their closets and toothbrushes ready to go next to the sink. And we have hearts so full of love for these sweet children that we are about to burst--with joy or impatience. Our agency thinks we should have a court date in a week or two, and then travel in another week or so after that. Middle of October, maybe. Of course, we've learned to hold manmade timelines VERY loosely, but we are hopeful that we are really only weeks away from finally meeting our children for the first time and beginning a very different kind of life from that moment forward.
