First Voss Family Picture!

Here is our first shot together as a family on our flight back to the US taken courtesy of our Spirit Air flight attendant, Bill.

Well, the Voss family is now complete. We touched down yesterday in Ft. Lauderdale at 11:20am EST. We cannot be happier about finally having our son home and in time for Christmas. He truly is a dream come true and the best Christmas present EVER. I will upload more pictures once we are back in Jacksonville next week. But I will post this one of Gabriel at the Westin pool on Wednesday.

Thank you to everyone who prayed for us during this long journey. We truly appreciate them from the bottom of our hearts. And now the true adventure begins - PARENTHOOD. And we simply cannot wait!

Update from Guate City!

I just wanted to update everyone that we made it safely to Guatemala City and picked up Gabriel on Monday morning - for good! We are elated to have him with us and that tomorrow we don't have to give him back as we had done two times before. It still seems very much unreal to us that he will be coming home with us tomorrow. God indeed is very good. We went for Embassy day yesterday and everything went very smoothly. Today, his visa is being delivered to the hotel and tomorrow, we are off to the good ole' USA. Gabriel automatically becomes a US citizen once we touch down.

We will be in Miami for a couple of days, but as soon as I get back to Jax, I will upload his pictures.

Thank you for everything! Without you guys, this would not have been possible.

GC Bound!

Well, everyone, we are Guate City bound today!! I will try and blog a little bit while we are there. But don't worry, there will be a ton of pictures once we get back! I simply cannot believe we are on our way to picking up our son and bringing him home - for good!

Thank you for all your prayers, thoughts, well wishes, emails, and calls during this journey. They have absolutely meant the world to me.

Next time you see pictures, Gabriel will be in our arms!
