So, we've been waiting a little over a month for the pictures of our kids. We still haven't received pictures, but a lot of exciting things have been happening since our last blog post:

1) Several other families in our adoption family have received their approvals! This makes us so happy that there has been constant movement in Rwanda and that more and more families are that much closer to meeting their children.

2) After getting our approval we have been spending time getting the house ready for the kids! We have been painting and sorting and cleaning every spare moment that we've had. Once we get the rooms all finished we will be sure to post some pictures for all of you that live far away.

3) The most exciting news is that we have officially raised all of the money for the adoption! This past Tuesday we were given a check to cover the rest of the money that we set out to raise! Of course there is always a chance that other unexpected expenses come up or if we have to wait too long to travel we may have to pay to have some paperwork redone. But, as long as we travel soon and there are no huge unexpected costs, God have provided all that we need financially! To us this is nothing short of a miracle! To start out with an overwhelming amount to raise and whole-heartedly believing that God was leading us down this path, it is amazing to see how He has provided everything that we've needed every step of the way. He's provided not just financially but with furniture and clothes for the kids, friends that have been a constant encouragement to us, family and friends that have been praying non-stop for us, and approval from the Rwandan government. It's hard to not get teary-eyed when we think about all that God has done!

Thank you all for your love and support! We truly can't wait until the day when we bring our kids home to meet all of you!
