Answered prayer, Elijah's paperwork is through the courts!!!

First of all, I just want to give praise and honor and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you so much for everyone that has been praying for this little guy's paperwork to get through the courts. We trusted in the Lord and He answered that prayer big time.

So here's the scoop, we are as of now traveling August 25th through Sept. 1st. Our US embassy appointment is on August 29th. So in less than a month we will be home with our son. There is still a small possibility that we will be traveling a week later, but either way we are going in a month and not three months.

Finally get to officially post our pic of Elijah, so here he is.

love you guys, thanks for the prayers again,

Dave & Amanda

I am so excited for you two, I might just jump out of my skin! (LOL :-) I hope that Hannah and Sarah can be good buddies with Elijah and show him the ropes of toddlerhood when he's ready! Can't wait to meet the newest member of the Duda family! Can you believe he's yours? And God has known he would be yours since before there was time! WOW! What an AWESOME God we serve!
Love,Trisha
