Suprise Party!





We are blown away with new information that our baby did pass through court last Tuesday and is our newest family member. We will continue to fight to pass Beautiful E through the Ethiopian court system and are believing for a miracle. Ray and I will be traveling out on the 23rd of October to bring our baby home. While we are there we will attempt to appeal on behalf of Beautiful E. Her paperwork now has all the required pieces and she does have a new court date of November 8, but we will try to get it pushed through while we are there. Who knows? God can do anything. In the meantime I would like to introduce our new little girl...Meseret Joy VanWetten.

She is ADORABLE!! Just read your post and can't believe it! Isn't Duni funny--while waiting for our referral she flippantly says "Oh, I can send your referral for your son, if you'd like." She's so calm. Praying for you as you get ready to travel and meet your new kiddos!
much love,
