we have a court date ya'll!

We were praying very specifically tonight at dinner for our court date. Marshall prayed that we would find out our date today. On my out of the door for PWOC, I checked my email. I am a bit compulsive about that these days.

There was an email from Duni....

Our court date is April 11.

Now, please pray that our court appointment is favorable. We will travel 2-3 weeks after that.

Thank You, Lord that You are indeed in control. You know what will happen on April 11. We can rest in that, for sure.

Congratulations!!! I'm sure you have read on our blog that we are in the middle of a major fight with USCIS to get the paperwork to bring Artem home, but IF they get their tails in order and get us our paperwork, April 11th is our Gotcha Day! What a great day for both families. :-)

Jill - It brought tears to my eyes to read your news this morning. God is so good!

Psalm 100 says "Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worhsip the Lord with gladness; come before hime with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his. we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continuous through all generations."

Praising Him with and for you! -

being an associate basically means that you help other families who are interested in adoption, help with the awaa seminars in our area, host small groups, etc. we would also answer emails for families in our area who are possibly interested in adoption and just kind of introduce them to awaa and international adoption...that's the short version :-)
