Introducing......

Zahra Reign Shubin
(she does have one more name but we're waiting until we're home to publicly share that.)

Orphan NO MORE!!
(thank you Nina Mullins for this family photo)

Amazingly awesome feeling. Two days after being court "approved" (still not sure why it was worded that way) we have our mowa letter and preparations are being made for our submission to embassy. We are keeping busy with friends here, ministries, and just enjoying one anothers company. We are hoping things are processed quickly and we can stay in country to complete the process and bring Zahra home.

Please continue to pray that things go smoothly and we are able to have everything processed quickly. THANK YOU!

For those that have asked, YES I'm still working. We have a little routine and I've been able to continue being a travel agent from here. A HUGE thank you to my clients for their patience and understanding. Email me if you have any questions, I have amazing stateside support! We are SO excited to get to meet some of you!
