It's Official!

May 22, 2009 5:37 PM


A little before 10:00 AM Nicaragua time on May 22nd, 2009, we legally adopted Rosalinda Ava and Rebeca Sara into the Oechsler family. The day was made even more special with the presence and participation of our three biological children--Ryan, Sam, and Kate. Our meeting took place in a small, interior office within Jinotepe's simple but bustling courthouse. It was officiated by the attorney general, a presiding judge, and local Mi Familia designate who we found to be very professional, respectful, and gracious. With our attorney, Martha, by our side each one of us (save the youngest) signed the last of the paperwork.

When validated for our willingness to bring two more children into our home, we explained that now we are "una familia completa" since "siete es el número perfecto."

Bill & Stacy,

The ability to recognize that God is calling you both to do something, anything, for the glory of his Kingdom is a blessing for your family. Your willingness to be obedient, trusting and steadfast through ALL the challenges has been a blessing to EVERYONE who knows you. Congratulations!

Praise God! We are so very happy for your big news - congratulations Bill and Stacy, and the entire Oechler family!

Praise the Lord!! What a journey your family has been on and now it begins another one together as a family of seven. What a blessing from our gracious God and what an inspiration you have been to those on the sidelines watching and praying. May God richly bless all of you in whatever the future holds as a family and individually. Congratulations!!


Thanks so much for the great news...the miracle of the final approval after you reached the 'down to the wire timing' is yet another amazing entry in this story.

I'm actually in Denver at an AGRM conference and learned yesterday that Tom and Janice Laymon are looking to adopt from Ethopia, and I told them some of your story as encouragement for their own, so do know that the impact of your walk continues to ripple out.


Congrats, Bill. We are all adopted, all aliens (the terrestrial sort), all children. Apart from being wonderful children of God and your own kids, they're great pictures of what all our journeys look like. We get a touch of this through doing foster care; it's a great joy. All best to you and your clan.

Congratulations, Bill! I'm excited for you and your growing family. Praying the adjustment time goes smoothly.

Bill and Stacy,

God bless you and your whole perfect 7 family! I am very happy for you.


Congrats Oechsler Family! God shapes us in so many ways. It's the journey, isn't it? Transformation comes through the journey. And your journey is just beginning. Bless you my friend.

Bill -

Congratulations, may God's peace provide you insight, direction, and wisdom during this season of life. We are delighted for you! Your friend, pilgrim, and brother. Phil

I am so happy for you and your family!! What a wonderful blessing to have such a great addition to your family!! And.. may the blessings continue!!!

Most of the Christian Louboutin discount sandals are hand finished giving them an elegance and richness rarely known to other brands of sandals. You can buy these sandals for cheap at sites like where you could get as much 50% discount on some of these sandals that cost around $150 - 200. The black satin finish and the covered heels add a touch of sophistication to the sandals too.

Great blog, I will add this blog to my favorites.

The author's writing is sharp, statement, smooth, people admire

Thanks a lot for the kind words!

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod's strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
