It's happening! We were really approved! I was elated, but not suprised. Last week, Josh hopped in his car and heard "Do it Again", the song with the beautiful lyrics, "I've seen you move, you move the mountains. And I believe I'll see you do it again." That song has been dear to me, so … Continue reading EP Approval!
It’s been a bit of a weird week. I went into this week fully expecting we would receive approval. When it didn’t happen by Tuesday, I knew the chances were slim. Offices would be closed for a major Korean holiday on Wednesday and Friday was court for the rest of the families in the batch … Continue reading Still no approval

I don't want to share too much and risk getting myself in trouble, but here are … Continue reading Sam’s developmental update!

It would almost be funny if it weren't so sad. I prayed so hopefully, so expectantly for Sam to get submitted with that last EP round. I felt it in my bones. I knew God was moving. And then it happened! Prayers were answered. God moved mightily. And yet, I find myself feeling so hesitant … Continue reading Praying Expectantly
We shipped out Sam's birthday gift! It's in a 12 x 12 x 12 box, so it won't be delivered the way the standard small care packages are sent. Thus, I have no idea when it will arrive in Seoul. I'm hopeful it gets there by his birthday checkup, but he may not receive it … Continue reading Sam’s Birthday Gift
