Our second son

Well here we are, January 2014 and we are still waiting for news about who our son will be. It's been a year since we started the paperwork and it will most likely be another 6+ months before we bring home our little guy. During the last few months of waiting I needed something to help me through and so I finally talked my husband into letting us pick a name for our little guy. I wanted to call him by name, to pray for him by name. And so, we have named our sweet little unknown African boy, Maverick.

It is the most precious thing to hear Nolan say his brothers name when he prays for him. I also think it helps our 3 year old grasp having a brother just a little more. He still doesn't quite understand but this helps, and it helps me as well. I now have made 4 different pieces of jewelry with his name on it :) To wear my little family around my neck is such a blessing to me. And so there you have our small update. We don't have anything on time yet, but we have a name for him.

We would greatly appreciate your continuing prayers for our family and for Maverick. That God would bring him home to us soon and that He would keep him safe and let him know he is loved, wherever he may be. 



  1. This is Big step. I remember when you were pregnant with Nolan and wouldn't tell us his name. Thank you for sharing this part of your life with us. Praying for all four of you.

  2. Waiting is so hard - especially when your heart is across the globe! Praying these months pass quickly!

  3. I am so excited to hear when you finally bring Maverick home, love. Cannot wait!


Thank you for your comments, I love hearing from you
