We Are Traveling!!!!

We Are Traveling!!!!  
 

For those of you who are new to Holtz, we better bring you up to speed. We are currently in the process of adding 5 new Holtz children to our family (from Costa Rica). Yeah, I know, that sounds crazy... We'll have 11 children...(6+5 =11 have to double check my math sometimes)!
 

The Quick Update:
 

After 2.5 years of pursuing adoption, we received our call that it is finally time to go and pick up our children!! Excitement has been high around here as we prepare our entire family to travel to Costa Rica…
 

Airline tickets for 13 people, hotel or Airbnb… How many rooms? How are we going to get around… Uber?... Oh, and we just found out that Costa Rican law requires all children under age 12 to be in a car seat. For our crew, that means 7 car seats. Where are we going to put those on the plane!? And how can we lug them around?
 

Just Yesterday…
 

Please pray with us as we just received a call that one of the thousands of legal documents had a misspelled name which may delay our travel dates. We are ready to bring the new Holtz children home!

If someone doesn’t believe that God is still making miracles happen, then they haven’t seen what your family has accomplished through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Your family makes Philippians 4:13 a true statement “I can do all things through him who strengthens me”. Thank you and May God Bless your family!

What you’re doing, what God has inspired you to do, and given the opportunity for your family to do is SOOOO wonderful!!! Prayers that the “misspelled name” works out favorably, and all the details of traveling will fall into place in perfect timing. Your faith is admirable…God bless you all.
