HE'S OURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have waited months to be able to say this:


Kenny Toktogul La Joy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't he the most beautiful, handsome, cute, adorable, sweet...did I say handsome???...little guy you have ever seen??? And he is all ours!!!!!!! WOW!!!

We received an email late this evening that his adoption was final today. I'm a mommy again!! Toktogul will have a family forever now!!

I simply can not believe God's blessings in our lives. One little boy and one family with a missing person. When I stop and think about it, I am astounded that He has done this 3 times in our lives, putting together people who really need each other regardless of distance. I am filled with gratitude this evening for what God has done for all FIVE of us!!!
I will post more photos of him later, and maybe I'll be able to eventually put into words what I am feeling right now...but at the moment I just can't.
We love you, Tokie. We'll have a long couple of months waiting to travel!! Each one of us is so excited and thrilled. Matt and Josh jumped up and down on their beds when they heard the news and Matthew was on the top bunk jumping and almost hit his head on the ceiling! Joshie asked if we are going to get him tomorrow :-) Sadly, we are not...but we'll all be together soon.
And now, I will go to bed and spend my first night as the mommy of 3.

What wonderful news- and what a relief. He is a handsome boy. And I love his middle name. Toktogul is a good name.

Congratulations! Somehow I had bookmarked a Feb. post and everytime I checked, it landed on that post. I happen to look at my page and realized that I wasn't seeing your current blog. Congratulations again!

Wow! Wonderful, wonderful news! It seems like you were just starting this blog and this new journey. I remember when you and I first started talking about your girls in Petro you were still a little on the fence about this next big move and look where you are now!! :) A mom of three! Congratulations to you and I can't wait until you can bring him home!
