WE RECEIVED NOTICE EARLY THURSDAY MORNING THAT WE HAVE A COURT DATE!!!
We will be leaving for Ukraine this coming Tuesday morning and will arrive in our children's region early Wednesday evening. We will be in court on Thursday at 11 am (3 am CST)!!!! If all goes as planned, we should be home with our three beautiful children by mid-October!!!
We were hoping that we would be home with our children by Trenton's 3rd birthday on September 27, but we have prayed for God's timing. Now we will get to have a mini-celebration with him after court on the 29th and let him know he will have a HUGE birthday party when we get home. We also plan to give Teague and Maclayne belated birthday parties in the weeks to come; we may even give them birthday parties every month for a while; we have missed birthday parties to make up!
Oh, God is sooo wonderful, powerful, mighty, loving, faithful, amazing.... David and I still cannot believe that He loved us enough to give us the most precious gift of four adopted sons and one adopted daughter. Words cannot express how blessed and honored we are that four of the children He gave us have Down syndrome.
I will post more details when they come about. Please continue to pray for us and both our children in Ukraine and our children here. Thank you for giving us such heartfelt support over the past months.
