We found out today that our papers have been submitted in Ethiopia and hopefully we will receive our court date soon. We have heard that the dates are into Oct. right now.
And Oh My Gosh, we received a new picture of Keshawn and he is GORGEOUS! He has a great big, happy smile and bright, beautiful eyes!
We are praying that we can bring him home before the Christmas season!
I am a happy mama right now, and enjoying the "glow" of "pregnancy". Ha-ha.

Happy Dance, Happy Dance!!!Praise the LORD with me!
"Come and see what God has done: He is awesome in His deeds toward the children of man." Ps. 66:5


  1. great news! I know the glow you are speaking of:)
    The glow that comes from smiling so much your cheeks hurt:):) Because God is SO good!

  2. Woohoo! Will be praying that you get to bring your sweet boy home quickly! :D

  3. Praising His holy name with you Shonni!

    Oh I am rejoicing as you wait to bring your newest blessing home!

    Praying over the final details and all the court things too!

    Love and blessings - Jill
    PS Happy Dance photo ROCKS!

  4. Oh, how wonderful! I know that waiting for the court date is such a huge thing, but it is exciting that you will be bringing Keshawn home soon! I can hardly wait to see pictures of you holding him! I am so glad you are enjoying your "preganancy glow" while waiting!

    Justin and Shauna are also waiting for a court date, as I'm sure you know. I will be in Uganda for three weeks starting September 16, and I am praying that somehow they might be able to come for their court date while I am there. Whether or not they get a date that soon, I will be able to meet dear little Isaiah Ryan while I am there. I am so anxious to see my newest grandson!

  5. How wonderful and exciting for your family! The joy of adoption is amazing! Praise the Lord!!

    Can't wait to see pics!! I know you have to wait a bit for that.

  6. Wonderful news!! I'm so excited to hear that you will likely have him home by Christmas! Super!

  7. How exciting! Yea God!!!!!!!
    I know that feeling too. ;)

  8. Congratulations on your court date! My husband is in Ethiopia right now, coming home on Friday with our three newest children. That will give us a grand total of eight between 8 and 14, five from Ethiopia, three homegrown, five boys and three girls, and three with medical special needs. It is such an amazing time, this waiting. Paper pregnant someone said, but I don't think that really covers it!

  9. Absolutely! He is worthy to be praised! Rejoicing with you in your good news.


  10. wooohoooo, precious friend. Oh I am totally rejoicing with you. That is fantastic news tonight!!!! I can hardly wait to see your newest darling.
    Praying for a Christmas baby! That would be the best present ever!

    Love and hugs

  11. YEAH, yeah, yeah! I love what the Lord is doing and continues to do to redeem these precious little ones. Rejoicing with you, hands held high!

  12. Yay! That's so exciting! I'm sure the picture is priceless. I'm looking forward to when you can share it with us!

  13. SO EXCITED for your family!! I can't wait to see your beautiful new little blessing!

  14. Shonni, how could I have missed your announcement on July 1???? We have been gone a good part of July and without internet. I'm soooo excited for you. He's so young,too. Sweet boy. Have there been pictures posted?
