From the Mountain Top

We are thrilled to announce that we have another son. 

Simon Tirfe Fitzpatrick

After a three year wait—Over seventy-five legal documents and forms, two rounds of fingerprints, a daughter, and immeasurable anxiety-filled nights- we finally made it to court. * 

In the end, we have a boy.

Looking back, we have waited far longer than we have ever anticipated- but after meeting our son, we both feel that this curious, silly, mischievous boy was meant to be a Fitzpatrick.  We are over the moon with how life has turned out and the graceful ways God has brought our son into our lives.

Please continue to pray for the Fitz family that we are able to get an embassy date and get back to ET to escort Simon Tirfe home.**

*Which as it turns out, was fairly anticlimactic.
**  The latest indication that we are looking at 4-8 weeks until we are home as a family of five.  For the time being,  we will continue on as a virtual family.


  1. My heart swells!!! Cant wait to meet him.

  2. What a beautiful little boy! Can't wait to meet him!

  3. So, so awesome, Dana. So happy for you. And not that it matters, but HOLY CRAP HE COULD NOT BE ANY CUTER!
