INTRODUCING . . .

Abel Josiah Erb
(we're still deciding if we want to add a 2nd middle name...we'll share more on his name later)

I hope to post more about our trip soon! We have pretty bad jet-lag this time around, ugh. We don't remember suffering from it last time. Any advice on how to kick it? 

Abel's an absolute delight and we're so grateful he's our son! He's going on 7 months and is a super healthy peanut. He's got adorable dimples and the sweetest laugh. We miss him SO much! Leaving was harder than we thought it would be. We're trusting God to reunite our family soon!

Currently, our agency is gathering the necessary paperwork for embassy. This typically takes about 6-8 weeks. Once they have everything, then Abel begins with embassy doctor appointments and processing. This is where our case could get tricky because of some things I'll share about later. Please keep praying that our family finds favor during this process.

But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
    let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
    that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
    you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
Psalm 5:11-12
