court follow up

thank you, thank you dear sweet friends, for all your prayers!
court went well yesterday.
biological parents were not there, which made it a bit easier for us since we were concerned about keeping ourselves anonymous.
the lawyer was so helpful. and that was a huge blessing.
the worker doesn't seem to like the idea of moving her, but we hope she'll come around.
the plan now is for them to staff it and hopefully make a plan to move the little miss.
we are still praying. we've heard that plan making would happen before and it was so discouraging when we discovered that no plans were being made, instead it seemed to be a stall tactic where someone was just being passively resistant. we hope and pray everybody will follow through on their promises and work hard to move her to our home quickly.
your continued prayers are very, very appreciated.
we are so thankful for each of you!
and as my friend, stephanie cherry said,
"may God make a way."


  1. Praying for you and your family, and for the little girl that others are making decisions for. I hope they truly have her best interests at heart as they move ahead. We've had to take our blog private because of changes in our lives- would you send me an email at: ambermbates(at)gmail(dot)com so that I can add you to the reading list?
    Hoping for all the best, however that looks, for you and your family!
