Introducing.........

We Passed!!!!!!!!!! They are officially part of the Boster family. We leave March 22nd. On March 23rd they will be in our arms. Thank you everyone for your prayers. Now if I can only settle on a girl's name......






We are beyond excited to introduce two new Bosters. Many of you have followed our adoption journey over the last 14 months. You prayed for us and encouraged us when God took us down different paths. From the death of our baby in Liberia, the failed domestic adoption and now to Ethiopia, you were there. Thank you. We feel so blessed to be able to call you friends and family.

Adam and I fly to Ethiopia on March 22nd to hold our babies in our arms. Words cannot begin to express the deep gratitude and praise that is over flowing from my heart. Our family will forever be changed and so will the lives of the twins. We are the lucky ones, We are the blessed ones. We are the ones that will get to hear them say,"mommy and daddy I love you". How awesome. How incredible. How humbling.

When we leave for Ethiopia I'm hoping to take donations with me. My original plan was to take a suitcase full of stuff, but then I thought what would be more beneficial- A suitcase filled with stuff that might or might not be needed or money to buy things there. This would be double the benefit. It would support their economy. Many times I feel a desire to help but am unsure if it's legitimate or how much of my money will actually go to the cause.
That is why I'm so excited to actually see first hand where the money goes. Adam and I plan on spending a few days when we are in Ethiopia getting the money/supplies into the hands of the people. If you feel like you want to help, please let us know. Forty cents provides aids medicine for one person. Imagine what $1000 could do. We are already half way to our goal. Thanks Mom and Dad!

We love you all. Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we walk forward in faith into the next chapter of our lives.



Blessings,
The Boster Family
