we're coming home!!!

That's right people! We are coming home THIS SATURDAY!!!

We have been praying since we were given our court date that we would be able to return by November 6th. Because of God's incredible graciousness towards us, and the generous heart of a close friend, we are coming home Saturday, November 5th! (The day before Orphan Sunday. How cool is that?!) God is so so good!

Jake went to the Embassy and picked up Enock's Visa today and we celebrated at "I Feel Like Chicken Tonight". (I'm not kidding... that's the name of the restaurant. It's Jake's favorite place in Uganda.)

They boys are doing great. Camp is now saying "motorcar" and Enock asks to thank God for "brother" every night. Here are some new pictures to tie you over until you see us in person!!!

(We crack up every time we look at this photo.)

Here are a couple of things to pray for...

1. We have been told that airport officials have been known to give you a hard time leaving the country with an adopted child. Please be praying that we can leave Entebbe Airport smoothly!
2. Our layover in Dallas is 1 hour and 45 minutes. This will be our first port of entry into the U.S. and they will need to go through all of our adoption documents. Please be praying that they can do this quickly and that we don't miss our connecting flight HOME!

Thanks everyone!

{One last thing... turns out I love to celebrate with giveaways! Take 2 seconds and head over to my friend Katie's blog here and enter to win a $50 gift certificate to Noonday Collection!}
