Africa Bound!



After many months of waiting, praying and hoping, the day has finally come. On April 25 I depart for Accra, Ghana and shortly thereafter will meet our 2 year old son, James Monrovia Epp for the first time. I will be gone for about 2 weeks barring any further complications. Once back, we are very much looking forward to family time with the boys, Allie's graduation and a Saskatchewan trip to introduce our two additions.

Very exciting news! You'll all be in our thougths and prayers during this next chapter of your adverture!
I'm happy to hear you were able to show Parker off to the Epp Grandparents. They must be very proud of you two!
Is that one of those floor toys I see Parker playing with. Is he working on his backhand yet??? No pressure Parker!!!
Miss you!

It's been a long & tumultuous road to get to this point & your patience & perserverance inspires us all. We are so anxious to finally meet sweet James...a certain red-head is counting the sleeps. You are in our thoughts & prayers as you begin your travels to Africa & we are trying to contain our excitement & anticipation until you are back with your son! We can't wait to see both Epp boys ... and back just before Mother's Day, that is perfect!
