It’s been a while since we have shared publicly on this blog about the latest events in our lives, and in part the lack of sharing has been intentional. As we shared in our last post, within a few days after returning from the adoption of Koby and Si in the Ghana courts our lives were put in somewhat of a tail spin. Our worst fears were that the completion of the adoption and the approval from the USCIS to bring our new sons home would be delayed, or worse. So doing whatever we needed to do to get them home became our primary focus.
Praise the Lord, though the holidays and the first of the year was rough, we finally were able to get approval and got their passports and visas. So Christy and I traveled to Accra in February, and after spending a few days with the boys near the orphanage and getting the opportunity to preach again in the church, we left with Koby and Si in our arms and arrived home with our boys on February 26. I’m sure Christy will have more exciting news to share on her blog about this trip soon.
Since arriving home, Koby and Si have fit right in with our family. We were concerned most with how they might relate to Levi and how Levi might react to them, but we couldn’t have asked for any smoother transition. They have a soft disposition toward Levi, and they are both affectionate toward him, especially Si.
One major difference of course is that there is much more hyperactivity in our house, and for some reason children’s shows appear much more frequently on the television, and the decibel levels have risen considerably, but it is a joy to be a family of 7 now, and we are blessed to have added James Koby and Josiah Gerrad to the McCosh Clan! Ivy and Sophie are a huge help with the boys, and the boys love them too!
Not only have we brought the family home by bringing Koby and Si to the USA, but we are excited to announce more news. We have been praying and seeking a new direction for ministry, and are thrilled to finally realize that God is leading us back home to Exalt Jesus and Build His Kingdom in Sweetwater, Tennessee. We will be making the move in the next few weeks. So all our homies should be watching for us. We can’t wait to reconnect with family and friends as we re-settle back into life in our hometown.
As always, we love reading your comments and interacting with those who are interested in our lives, so please feel free to share your thoughts or questions with us on this blog, facebook, twitter, google+, or any other way you prefer.
