Adoption – next stop Manila!!!!!

Praise God the final signature on the final bit of paper is finally here!!! Things have moved pretty quickly over the last few hours and we now have flights and a hotel booked in Manila. If things work to plan we should meet our little girl for the first time on Wednesday morning.

Our plan is to fly up to the capital tomorrow mid-morning and spend the day relaxing and enjoying time with Lydia and Ewan before hopefully getting our two excited children to bed early. Then at 9a.m. the next morning we will meet a social worker at the office of the organisation that has current custody of our daughter. They will then take us to meet her – 🙂 – very exciting. On Thursday we will get to take her home with us!

Praise God that He has worked all of the details up to this point and things seem to be looking really really good. Thanks as well to our wonderful social worker here in Davao.

Please pray with us over these next few days:

  • That through this and all our actions that God would be glorified
  • That Ewan and Lydia will not be too excited and sleep well for their first meeting with their new sister (pray this too for us as well)
  • That as a family of 5 we will bond together the way only God can bond a family
  • That all the arrangements will work to plan
  • That our little girl (we think we will call her Katie 🙂 will feel loved, cherished and at home with us as quickly as is possible
  • Last time Louise flew her vertigo started. It is now well settled and we would appreciate your prayers that it does not flare up again on this flight.



  1. Praying all will go smoothly over these next few days. So excited for you all!

  2. so exciting.
