I am absolutely weeping with joy as I write this post.
After this week of fighting so hard to make sure we get home on time, we just received confirmation that the corrected wire from the National Visa Center was received by the US Embassy!
I am overwhelmed and truly blessed!  PRAYER REALLY DOES WORK!!  If I could only express to you what Paul & I have been through this week with this extra stress, you would truly see the miracle in all of this!!  And through it all, we fall more and more in love with our son.  Nathaniel Mesfin is the reason we are here and I would do ANYTHING to make sure he is with us forever!
Again, THANK YOU for your prayers and love.  WE ARE COMING HOME TOMORROW!!!!!

Praise the LORD He worked it all out for you to fly home on the ticket you'd already bought! What a precious baby you have!

May God continue to pour His blessings upon your family as you continue to bond and raise your little man up to be a servant of the King.
