And Now We Have Nine Children


We passed court today so we have the pleasure of introducing:

“Tigist Michael Gowin”
“Dawit Michael Gowin”
“Solomon Michael Gowin”

We are going to talk with them today about some American names we have picked out, but for now these are their official names.

Today is still very busy–we’ll have time with the kids this afternoon and then we’ll need to pack for our flight out tonight. More details to come soon.

(Bonus: our checked bags arrived today–just in time for us to pass out some gifts on behalf of friends and then to turn around and head home tonight.)

  1. As I write this, tears are flowing down my cheeks — tears of joy, tears of awe, tears of thanksgiving to our Heavenly Father who so loved the world that He GAVE His one and only Son (His best) so that I may be adopted into His family. And now I am so touched as I witness the Gowins imitating our heavenly Father in their giving their best so that these three beautiful children become adopted into their family. What a wonderful loving Father we have! All glory and Praise to Him now and forever more. And prayers to the Gowin family. Our Father will provide all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus. Amen.

  2. Congratulations! I am so happy God has answered prayers on both sides of the world for these children and for your family. My prayers will continue to be with you in the years to come!
