IT'S OFFICIAL!

WE PASSED COURT!!

Silas is legally our son!

Julie, our case manager, just called a few minutes ago to give us the great news!

We don't have travel plans yet but hope to get those in the next week or so.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS ... I HONESTLY BELIEVE THEY MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!

Time to go celebrate! (well, somehow try to work and then celebrate tonight at dinner and Bible Study)

I am Matt's mother and we are so happy that you passed court. I too loved the message that Matt emailed you. I talked with Matt and Monica this morning and they are ready to come home and be with their other boys as well. Matt said Jeremiah is doing great.

Praise the Lord! Enjoy the news and your clean, quiet house. In a few weeks there will be midnight feedings, crying, baby food messes, and stinky diapers...and it will be GREAT!

Congratulations Troy and Amber! That is wonderful news! We are also waiting to hear about travel dates, so we might be able to travel together!! We get to go pick up our boys that are the same age (and most likely little buddies) and bring the back to TN! How amazing!
