Answered Prayers! We have a date!

Much to our surprise we woke up to an email stating we received our court date of March 31st! You can imagine the celebration that took place. We had some amazing people very intentionally praying for the judge. One person was praying she would feel well rested from her day off and have the energy to set the date. Others were praying for a softened heart and a sense of urgency. We are VERY grateful for answered prayers. Now let the rat race begin. In a few days when I am complaining about being stressed about packing and so sad about leaving Brady, Madison, and Blake, just remember that it will be a cheerful complaining!!! A little ironic that we got the date today – the same day we are completing Blake’s two year post placement report.
