Gotcha Day November 19
Bringing him home forever November 24!
The details of the court session are confidential as per Russia law, but it went wonderfully. We slept terribly last night, felt so nervous we thought we were going to puke this morning (I literally put a plastic bag in my purse in case I actually did) and are beyond elated now! We could not have asked for a better court session. When the translator said the words "request for adoption granted" I nearly fell over with joy.
Thank you for your prayers; I am deeply moved by how many of you set your alarms to wake up in the middle of the night to pray for us! Knowing you were praying was a great encouragement; you sustained our every step.
What God has known forever and what I have hoped in my heart for the last year is finally official: I'm a mom. My husband is a dad. Our little man is ours, forever. Praise the Lord.
