Revelation 3:8 (New International Version)
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

The child is the beauty of God present in the world – that greatest gift to a family.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

Court Today

Hello Everyone we just arrived home. We are so excited to tell you that the court has said YES!! We are Ian, Benjamin's and Ellia's mom and dad!!!
We are SOOOOOO excited. I couldn't stop crying when the judge said the verdict. The tears started coming when each witness, social worker and prosecuter said yes and they were in favor (one by one) then the judge told us to stand and she said yes.
It was the greatest feeling! Thank you God!
We are getting ready to leave on the train back to the capitol. We will be going home where I will wait less then 2 weeks then come back to finish up the visa and passport work to bring our 3 new children home. I am not staying because I need to get my children at home settled and prepared for me to leave for another 10 days. It would be to long for me to stay. We have been here 1 month already and I miss all the kids at home so much. I need to go home and prayfully have a couple of yard sales to raise the last of the funds needed. God has helped us this entire trip..We have faith.
