Answered Prayer

WE PASSED COURT!!!!!  Yes, I am still in awe at our news and we found out on Monday.  We are officially the parents of four children.  Hertstein, party of 6.  I love that!

This was a major milestone in bringing baby A home.  For those who don’t know, when you pass court in Ethiopia the child then becomes yours.  The majority of families do not pass on their first attempt and we did.  Not only on our first attempt but one day shy of four weeks after receiving our referral phone call. 

What’s the next step?….we wait for our embassy date to be assigned in ET and that is the date we base our travel around.    We are hoping to go near the end of April. 

Thank you to all who were praying for us.  You held us high as we waited in anticipation to hear the news.  Our God is good, all the time, even in the wait.



  1. Congrats!! Kristi, you have shown such grace through this at times, I imagine, agonizing process. We are thrilled that everything is progressing well and are so, so happy for you and your family!!
