Update Before The Weekend - THANK GOD!!

Greetings -
Just spent the last hour on the phone with the Dept of State and our INCREDIBLE adoption agency. Here is where we are at - Tariku's birth mother has been located and is with the investigators on her way to Adidas (the capital) for the DNA testing! The plan is to bring Tariku and his mom to the lab on Monday (Sun night for us!!) The Dept of State is trying to get the results turned around quicker and has sent that info to the embassy. So now we wait!! Monday cannot come soon enough! Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Now we just pray that we can get the results quicker than 40+ days!!

Wishing you a Magical Day ~


  1. I am praying you will be able to pick up your sweet little boy very soon!

  2. That is great news Courtney. I hope to see Tariku our babyboy very soon.

  3. Courtney-I know for families in Vietnam, results could get turned around in 2-3 weeks. Hoping and praying it doesn't even take THAT long!! So happy that your son has you and AWAA to advocate on his behalf!! We'll continue to pray!

  4. YAY, God! Always amazing to watch Him move mountains! Will continue to pray for you and your family!
