Court tomorrow!

So here I sit in a tizzy, most likely for the rest of the day. Court will occur at 1:00 a.m. CST tonight.

I woke up at 5:00 this morning in anticipation of this blessed event! If we are granted the adoption of the girls, this journey will be OVER!

1 year, 3 1/2 months... all the paperwork, all the re-dos, all the stress, all the prayers, all the fundraising, all the apostilles, all the questions, all the mailing here and there, all the approvals, all the questions, all the doubts, all the headaches, all the tears, all the middle of the night wide awake times, ALL of everything... culminating into the finalization of the journey to Yana and Tavi.

Driving to Salina the other day, I was talking to God, and you know... It occurred to me that I wouldn't trade this journey for any of the super fast adoptions in the world. The blessings I have witnessed from God to myself and those I love, and the growth in my realtionship with Him is priceless!!!!!

I don't want to become a "miracle junkie", and only believe/love God when He does great things in my presence... but I tell you the truth... I LOVE to see HIM come through and I LOVE to see HIS plans unfold before my eyes and heart! I want to be BOLD, and COURAGEOUS, and WILLING TO PUT ALL MY TRUST IN HIM! Not money, not people, not usuallys, not last times, not myself... but in HIM is where I will place my trust!

Court is coming, and soon it will be "147 million- 2"! I am almost shaking in my anticipation!!!!!

Mama is coming Yana! I am coming for you Tavi John!!!! Just a short while longer!!!
