Mr. Tiny Tate, we need to buy all new clothes for you! We bought things that will be way too big for you!

Unfortunately, our paperwork is standing still yet today.

Did you know when there are more obstacles, it allows God to show up in even bigger ways?!!

Please keep praying with us!!!

We love you so much Tate Owen, and we are doing all we can to get there and bring you home!!!

    Oh my goodness! Cuteness personified. I love how God shows up to reveal that He is still working, even when it seems hard to believe it.

  2. Michelle says:

    Precious, precious, precious! God has a plan for little Tate! If my heart feels so squeezed right now, I can in no way imagine what yours feels like! Can you feel my hug right now?

  3. Connie says:

    Wish I could reach into those photos and give him a great big hug and tell him you are coming soon. I love that his name means cheerful! Excited to see how God is going to work this all out. Bunches of hugs to you!
