WE PASSED COURT TODAY, JULY 16, 2012!!!!!!!
We would like to introduce you to Yohannes Corban Kicklighter and Paulos Mason Kicklighter!
This was our referral picture, the first one we ever saw of our sons.
Yohannes is 10 years old. His birthday is October 10. He loves to play soccer. We chose "Corban" for his American middle name, which means "a gift offered to God". Our prayer for Yohannes is that his life will be a gift and that God will use him to bring glory to Him.
Paulos is 5 years old and his birthday is August 2. We will be able to give him his first birthday party (neither boy has ever celebrated a birthday) in just a couple weeks. He loves to play with blocks and puzzles. His middle name, "Mason", means "foundation builder". We pray he will someday build foundations of his family and in his walk with Christ. He was also named after a couple that was foundational in our lives, Don and JoAnn Mason.
Both boys want to remain being called by their Ethiopian names, but they both love their middle names, too, and practice saying their full names every day.
This was our first picture as a family:We're overjoyed to be able to share their faces with you at last! Praise God!!
