We will be in Tarrant County, and although we don't know the exact time yet, we do know our court appearance will be in the morning. We know there will be long lines and tons of happiness. What a blessing that day will be!
We have our attorney already getting paperwork filed. We've picked the boys' new names and given him our info so it can be on the boys' new birth certificates. We've scheduled the celebration party and reserved a bounce house! Boy, are the boys looking forward to that! (We're considering getting them a trampoline (with a net) now that it will be legal, although when we adopt again we'll have to remove it from the property.)
The boys don't understand much, I don't think, but we're doing our best to explain it to them. We're talking about when they are old and ugly (disclaimer: not that old people are ugly. We'll all be old sooner or later.) they will still be here with us, and Joey has heard it so many times that sometimes he tells me that he will be here till he's old.
This is a very exciting time. And we know that God is working all of it out according to his gracious plan.
“It is good to give thanks to the Lord
and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
and Your faithfulness by night,
For You, O Lord, have made me glad by what You have done,
I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
How great are Your works, O Lord!”~ Psalm 92: 1-2, 4-5a
