So when do we get to bring Micah home? I wish I knew the exact answer to that question. Micah's case has changed from being relinquished to being abandoned. The judge wants an ad to be placed in the paper for two weeks and then she will rule that he is legally ours. As soon as she says that he is legally ours we can start the process for embassy which takes 6-8 weeks. We can only pray that this process goes smoothly and quickly, but again I must remember that God has a plan for our little Micah.
Last night the women of our church had a baby shower for Micah and soon to be here Jianna. I can't express how wonderful it feels to be surrounded by such amazing and encouraging women! I thought that it would be very difficult opening presents for little Micah but it was actually uplifting to see the love people have for him already.
I want to thank each of you for your prayers and encouraging words to John and I. We are so humbled by the fact that people want to keep up with our journey to Micah. Most of all we are thankful that the Lord has chosen us to be his parents. This child has blessed us in so many ways!!
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". Jeremiah 29:11
