It's Official!!!

As of this afternoon, Eliana Joy Thiry is officially OURS!

What a journey this has been! God has shown himself to us in such a clear, unmistakable way through the journey of adopting Eliana. We stand in awe of the grace of adoption, and are humbled by the reminder that God adopts us as children and makes us heirs together with Christ-- even when we were so undeserving!

Thank you all for your many prayers! Even today we had a few moments when our heart stopped, but in the end, the birth parents went to court and relinquished their rights.

His Adopted,

Nathan, Julie, Elijah, Levi, & ELIANA
