We have a COURT DATE!!!
After one whole entire year since we saw the face of our daughter, we are going to finally get to meet her!!!
The darkness has lifted. Dawn has come.
Its so surreal. Really. We are in awe once again at the Giver of this blessed gift.
We leave in just THREE weeks!!
The call came one week ago today: I was working in the clinic that day and had just finished telling my patient that we are adopting a little girl from Uganda and have been waiting on a court date for a very long time. Then my phone rang. It was my husband. He normally calls me around the lunch hour on his break, so I didn’t think anything of it. He asks me if I want to go to Uganda?! And then I knew. This was IT! It was a very surreal conversation. We had waited months, TWELVE to be exact, for this call! My patient overheard our entire conversation, and when I hung up, I saw tears in her eyes.
We are Elated. Scared. Nervous. Excited. Anxious. Overjoyed.
Baby Girl, your story is touching lives. God is at work. He takes pain and loss and uses it for good. For His glory. You see, sweet girl, this call was not supposed to come for another few months! This court date was truly a miracle! Because just THE DAY BEFORE our agency had told us that we’d been assigned a judge, but that the judge was pretty much inactive at this time due to a very big case. Therefore, we should not expect a court date until after the new year. They would, however, work on trying to get us assigned to a new judge. We, of course, were devastated! I was planning on calling everyone I knew to get on their knees and PRAY. Your dad said he couldn’t sleep that night, and remembers praying most of the night. We ache for you. Oh the prayers we have prayed over you! And SO many are overjoyed with the news, and can’t wait to meet you.
Ahhhh, I can’t believe I’ll get to lay eyes on you in just weeks! I’ll get to finally touch you. Smell your skin. Kiss your cheeks. Hear your voice.
Never once did we ever walk this road alone. Never once did He leave us on our own. God is faithful. Forever faithful.
~To God be the Glory, great things he has done~
