Our Court Date = SUCCESS!

2 Dec

After judgement Our court appointment began one half hour late at 10 am and lasted about an hour. After a short 5 minute recess (it was more like 3 minutes), the judge returned with a verdict in our favor! After the mandatory 10 day waiting period, Colin will be forever our son!

Please join Heather and me in praising God for this perfect ending!


Heather’s on the phone, so this is Alan – posting as soon as we can to get this wonderful information to you! (Photo: Heather and me in the courtroom after the proceedings)

    Congratulations! Praise the Lord! He most certainly is the author of happy endings, isn’t he? Oh how our hearts are full to over flowing. So many emotions going on! The expressions on your faces show the happiness going on inside! Hooray! Praise the Lord from all that is within me. Now, rest in joy and in perfect peace getting to know that precious little boy. Stay well and love on him lots for us.
    All our love, Mom and Dad

    Congrats! How exciting! I feel for you both with that cold weather. It was that cold in our region when we were there in Jan-Feb of this year.
