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!

Adoption Finalization--UPDATE

Anyone who has read this blog since close to the beginning knows that its purpose is to document the process of adopting our children so that our children will have a record of the miracles (large and small) that God performed to form our family.  During the time we are traveling in Brazil to complete the adoption process, we are recording the steps (large and small) toward becoming a real live family together both for our children to read in the future and for our friends and family to read in real time.  This post is all update.

We have been scheduled to appear before the judge to finalize the adoption of our four amazing children on December 4.  Turns out that we're actually going to the court tomorrow and we're meeting with a substitute judge (not our favorite vacationing judge who is on vacation again).  We will still have the adoption decree in our hands on December 4 (Friday), but tomorrow at 2:00pm we leave the hotel all dressed in our fancy-best to head to the court.

So, friends, please join us in prayer that it will be a smooth experience and the beginning of a new and permanent life for all of us.  Also, please join us in celebrating the miracle of adoption that we are living today and every day thanks to God's great plan for our family!
