Done!!!!! Praise the Lord.

Seeing sibling's photos on a church wall.
Door to Adoption Opened: 6 years,1 month, 1 week, and 3 days.

First application paperwork in the mail until receiving Fritzlin's American passport in the mail: 5 years, 5 months, 3 weeks, and 2 days.

We will continue to pray for adoption paperwork to move forward, now it will be for the other kids that Fritzlin shared foster homes with or other families as we are finally done.

We will be heading home to Haiti the middle of this month, starting a new phase of life at Délice.

For the first time in over 6 years we can travel at will!

It really does not feel real.

The waiting is over.

So many answered prayers.

Thank you to all who supported us through this journey, through: prayers, help with paperwork, encouragement, and sharing the ups and downs.

First day of second grade. 
Fritzlin was more excited to see the eagle in his American passport than the one sheet of paper that is his certificate of citizenship. He was jumping up and down saying 'Now I'm an American.'
Campus Cookout for Anna's class

Free pizza for library summer reading program.
So he's been an American for a while, but now he's an American who can travel across boarders!

Very exciting as we're getting close to our final week in USA and preparing to return to Haiti.

All that remains is to receive all the documents we sent in for his passport and to send off some copies to our adoption agency.

Praise the Lord, through Who all blessings flow!

Sept. 2013. Home-study paperwork.
We learned and changed so much through this journey.

So many things we did not know or expect back six years ago.

We experienced almost every emotion from positives to negatives and sometimes several in just a few hours time.

We will forever be grateful to the Lord for allowing us the privilege of being Fritzlin's family.

    For being part of the family of God.

For opening so many closed doors on our behalf that finally allowed Fritzlin to join our family.

Thank you Lord.
