It’s a BOY!

We are so excited to finally introduce you to our newest son!



Ryan and I were named the official parents of Belete Merritt Mott today in the country of Ethiopia. He is 5’7″, 121 pounds, and 17 years old. And we couldn’t be more proud!

This journey first began on paper in June of 2014 but truly started in our hearts in August of 2010 when we were first made aware that he had been separated from our daughters, Fikirte and Konjit, due to his age. Over the next few weeks, we look forward to sharing more about our journey and the lessons we have learned along the way.

Until then, please celebrate with our family of 7!
