The family posted on the Prayers for Carter & Conner Facebook page Sunday: 

"Conner is coming HOME this upcoming WEEK!!! I can NOT believe it. God is SO good !! It's been 13 months LONG months and we are SO ready to at least being ONE of our boys HOME !! we're staying strong for Carter. I know it won't be long until we have both boys home. Thank you all so much ! Thank you for the continuous, love prayers and support. This is not the end of Conner's journey this is just the beginning."

The boys just turned 13-months-old. They were separated on May 7, 2015.
