We are overjoyed to share that today Olivia’s adoption was finalized. She is officially a ROLLING, not only in heart, but also in name.

Thank you for all of your prayers and words of encouragement. We have felt them and know that we are only here today because God has put people in our path and worked some miracles. We will eventually share some of those details with you so that you can see how it all came together.

We are officially into the passport stage. Please pray for some more miracles in the timing department. We will keep you posted with how that progresses. We did sign some papers today and everything is ready to process. It’s just a matter of seeing how long it takes.

And now, to sleep.

About Leslie

I'm Leslie. Wife. Mother. Missionary. In the day to day my husband and I are responsible for running Clean Water for Haiti, a humanitarian mission that builds and distributes water filters to Haitian families. Living in Haiti full time provides lots of stories, and as I tell my husband, our grandkids probably won't believe most of them. Maybe writing them down will give me some credibility.

  1. Chris and Leslie!!!! How can you go to sleep??? I’m so excited for you I won’t be able to quit talking about Miss O all night long! Congrats!

    • Jess, we were looking at pictures the other day from when we met her for the first time etc. Olivia wanted to know who you were and was asking all sorts of questions. It was so fun to see how much she’s changed.

  2. Congratulations. What a marathon this Haitian adoption thing is, eh? I think in honor of Madamoiselle Olivia’s adoption, you should put together a retrospective… old entries about when you first learned about her, her arrival in your home, early baby pictures. I know you have tons of time on your hands, so I’ll just sit here and await the fruits of your labor–Hahaha

    Congratulations!! We are so happy for you guys that this stage is finished! We will continue to be praying for the passport stage and that you will soon be able to head to Canada!

    Bondye bon tout tan!

  7. Congratulations – Rolling “family” – especially to you, Miss Olivia – on this most exciting and welcome news. As soon as I saw the photo, I knew something fantastic had happened. We do indeed serve an awesome and mighty God, who always does “immeasurably more” (Ephesians 3:20-21) than what we ask. My wish now for each of you – love, peace, joy, and much, much happiness!!!!!
