It's a boy...

...and he is perfect! Moses Burke, 2 months old, is waiting for us in Ethiopia. We chose "Moses," meaning "saved" or "drawn out" because of his story's parallel to Scripture's Moses. We are not allowed to post photos at this point, but if you can envision the dearest thatch of black curls and most luminous chocolate eyes, then you can picture our son. We begin now the great wait and expect to travel in June. We were completely amazed at this referral as our dossier was submitted just 2 weeks ago. From beginning to in our arms, this process looks to be just about 9 months! We are praising God, from Whom all blessings flow...

Praises to our good Lord for pouring out His blessings! I love the name Moses! We liked that name for Isaiah (our son waiting in China) but he had another name when we prayed and asked for his name:)
Hugs and prayers as you "wait" to travel.

This is just superb, wonderful news! So happy for you! Like Giancarlo said about Peaches when we found out we're expecting boy #3 "Peaches is going to be our only princess" So I'm thinking the same applies to Mylinh for now.
Love you!

We are hoping to travel in early June, too! Our dossier arrived at Holt 2/11 and is supposed to be in Washington DC this week.
Blessings on your journey to Moses! What a wonderful name!
