Today's news really isn't what we hoped for, but we do go forward trusting that God is at work and His ways are not always our ways.
We are all four bummed. But it really is o.k. How many times have I read in other blogs that international adoption is not for the faint of heart?!? So true.
Our new court date is June 16th. That is Sage's 10th birthday!

So as we sleep (or not sleep) tonight, our children's future will be discussed by some individuals that we likely will never meet this side of heaven. Our prayer is for God's beautiful and perfect will and timing. However, I keep reminding God that we really would love to pass court tomorrow.
We received a quick update on the kids today. They looked as if maybe it were morning and were just getting up and around. They had those sweet sleepy eyes. Moms, you know the ones I am talking about!
Thinking of all the other families with court dates this week!
Many, O Lord my God,
are the wonders you have done.
The things you planned for us
no one can recount to you;
were I to speak and tell of them,
they would be too many to declare.

Here's a little of life at our house recently. In no particular order:
New window treatment's for the girls' room! My mom and grandmother made them and we love them! They really help to put the finishing touches on the room.
Madison recently got out all of her American Girl stuff. She set up the doll bed, washed and ironed the doll bed sheets and organized all of her outfits and accessories to share with her new sisters. We ordered new AG dolls for Y and M. We hope they like them!
For a last little trip as a family of four, we went to the Gladney Skittle Event at Six Flags last weekend. Sage has always wanted to try lobster and he got his chance during lunch at one of our favorite restaurants Papadeaux's.
