Thanks Nana and Papa for the warm fleeces- it gets a little cold in Nairobi at night!
Waiting and waiting and waiting at the medical clinic- the boys did great:)

While we were in Rwanda, we learned that a more accurate translation of Levi's middle name, Kwizera, is FAITH. During the adoption process, we hung the word FAITH on the door to the boys' room, and now as we wait in Nairobi for the results of his PCR, it is a test of our FAITH. We are infinitely grateful for these two little lives that have been entrusted into our hands and we know that God is working in this situation. As I'm sure all parents would agree, we don't want our little one to be have to suffer and so we are praying for a favorable outcome- however, in all things we will trust that God gave us these children and we will praise him in all circumstances.

Sending our love,
The Dorband 4


  1. LOVE THESE PICTURES!!! :) I may make them cry when I see them because I am going to want to pinch them all over and kiss them too! (But that could cause possibly more tears!) Could they be any cuter?! We love all four of you dearly. We lift up our prayers daily for Levi's results and all four of you on this journey. :) xoxoxox

  2. Look at Levi smile:) Oh they are just too cute!

  3. Praying hard for you guys. You are loved and sorely missed around here. When I saw the first pics and videos, I was moved to the point of eye-moisture :) Your sons are SO cute. Can't wait to see the new additions to the Dorband family. Am I correct in assuming that you will have them in mohawks soon, Adam? :)

  4. Thinking, praying and waiting...thinking, praying and waiting...I'm right there with you and I hope you can feel the support! Sending all my love and hugs!!! ~Angela
