Update | Court

Bubba had Court last week.
It was interesting, as usual.
Family Court pretty much sucks...
Our family received happy news tho - we found out the adoption will be finalized
sometime between June & August.
No, it wasn't this past December, or January as originally told to us, but that's ok.
We trust in a Higher Power.  He decides what date needs to be our Adoption Date!


But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40: 31)

M.J. goes bye bye

Our sweet foster baby, M.J. went bye bye yesterday.

There are no words to share how difficult this has been for my family.
The excitement of having him the first time, the sadness of having him moved to another home.
Then his glorious return.
And then us realizing we weren't able to keep him long term due to reasons I can't speak of publicly.
He is precious.  He is beautiful.  He is worthy of love & hugs & kisses!  He deserves to have family time every evening.  To have free style dance sessions.  And to crawl around the house with sisters chasing him close behind! To have a daddy who teaches him about Jesus. And a momma who tells him how especially wonderful he is!

It hurts to know that we just cannot physically provide everything that sweet boy needs.

So we pray.
And we trust.
The Father who breathed life into his glorious little lungs is the same Father yesterday, today, & tomorrow.  His will for M.J's life will be accomplished whether I'm able to smother him with hugs & kisses, or whether it's another Foster momma.

If you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
Proverbs 3:24
