the best news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

we got our baby referral!!!!!!!!! we are getting a little boy & he is just the sweetest thing! we cannot wait to bring him home & love on him! he's a little younger than sammy & he's a chubby boy so he'll fit right in with our big boys. ;) oh how i wish i could show the whole a picture of his sweet face, but we cannot until the adoption is final.
we have decided to change his name to amos benjamin. amos means burdened & we pray that he is always burdened for the lost & burdened with the gospel. benjamin means son & he will be just that... fully our son.
we have pictures of our amos all over our house & on our phones! our family is just beaming with joy & excitement! we cannot wait to get on a plane & go get our brother & son. jude already calls him amos & sammy points at the pictures & says, "bubba" (just as he calls jude).
thank you Father, for Your perfect timing! our God is soooooooo good!

"He sets the lonely in families." Psalm 68:6
