I think about them all the time.

Ebsa and Ebisa

We are still trying to figure out their first new names for when they are adopted into our family. I won't post on here until we know exactly what we would like to name them. I guess we would like a few more pictures just to truly see who they are. We have two biblical names picked out, but we want to make sure. I personally think it is a done deal, but Carl want to wait a little longer. I wish I could show you pictures, but soon enough you will know those cutie pies.

I wish I could get on a plane today and go and get them. I want to snuggle them to bed and kiss their little noses and run, laugh and cry with them. I want each of them to know that they are in our family for the long haul...forever! Sure we want to teach them about their heritage, but these boys are going also learn how to make a mean batch of lefse. After all - I had to learn when I was brought into Carl's family.

I can imagine Adie and those two holding hands trying to walk into church. What a sight we will be! I might need a valet service especially in the winter months. Maybe this will be a new church ministry that might spring up. (I only say this because Carl is always at church early to run the video and we come in separate vehicle much later.) Otherwise I should grow another arm or two because that would be extremely helpful. 2 year olds and parking lots can put a lot of fear in a momma.

I often wonder, do they know what is going on? Can they comprehend the world around them at two years old? How scared and damaged are their little hearts? My questions go on and on, but I am standing firm that God has it all under control.

Please be in prayer for our court dates. We have yet to receive one and REALLY need one soon so that we can travel and get them.

I am in prayer for these precious ones. I will pray that God will give you names for them that will be like a banner over their heads- something that truly tells the world that they are God's children-and that they are loved. I am praying that the court date and travel dates line up with all that is on the schedule for you and Carl in the coming months!! God is great. He is sovereign. He is in control of time and knows all of the things that weigh on your heart!

Angel, We are and will be praying for you. You got me all choked up with this post! I can't wait to see them coming through the door like that, and the pleasure it will be to scoop them up and give them a big hug and kiss and welcome them to their larger family. All our love, Matthew and fam
