A Court Date!

For those of you who haven't heard, we have a court date! We leave here in the evening of the October 22nd. We will get to see our wonderful little man on the 25th and the court is on the 26th. Although I am extremely excited, I am also terrified. The family still has not signed the consent forms waiving their rights therefore giving us no worries. So, the plan is to go ahead with things as normal, pray the judge grants us custody of him, and spend the longest 10 days after that waiting and worrying the family is going to pick him up.

In his country, once a child is identified to be adopted, the officials attempt to get a hold of the extended family at a last attempt for them to come and get them. If the family does not want to take him in then he is ours. If they don't sign the papers they have 10 days to make up their minds after court. If they keep quiet then on the 11th day, he is our forever.

If you can take the time to pray for us and the family, we would appreciate it! We need all the prayers we can get! I will be keeping you all updated when possible.
