Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

Kaitlyn's Way

1 John 5:14-15

And this is the confidence that we have toward Him, that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of Him.

We have a court date.... May 24, 2010

Kaitlyn's Way

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us... Eph 3:20

As of Monday, we fired our old attorney, Cynthia Garwood, and Eric hired a new attorney Rebecca Rouch.

We have since been filling out paperwork and answering emails nonstop.

We have a court date tomorrow morning, for custody, to take care of medical issues AND AND AND AND we are filing for adoption TOMORROW!

It is just a matter of weeks to set an appointment for Kaitlyn to be checked out by our family doctor, fill out some more paperwork and wait for our court date.

Please continue to pray for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Super fun Spring day with Grandma!

Kaitlyn's Way

Today we saw a little light...
We spoke with our judge's assistant and was told that we could move forward with our adoption plans in Indiana. Birth mother missed her deadline, but is still able to get a court date by law. We will not know if we have to appear until that time comes. On the bright side of things, we can move forward here in Indiana and Kait will not be placed back with her birth mother.

Now for the dim....
We have made several attempts to contact our Indiana attorney. Eric has spoken with her assistant, but unfortunately, this is where the road has ended. Eric did express our concerns with her assistant: "If she's that busy, let us know and we'll find someone else."

Moving forward...
Eric is much more cautious and refuses to celebrate any little victory- always my ROCK. He keeps me grounded and reminds me to be thankful without letting my guard down. Wise man.

So now, I ask that you pray for steadfastness as we remain on this course, excited to see it through and legally complete our family.

Count it all joy... James 1:2

Kaitlyn's Way

I wish I had some news to report.
In fact, it's the reason I haven't updated in awhile.

The March 8th deadline has come and gone and still we sit waiting for confirmation on whether or not Kait's birth mother filed the necessary paperwork to obtain a court date.

It is our prayer that she has not, but as of right now we trust in the Lord, try to keep ourselves under control (not an easy task) and wait.

Life goes on and we are thankful at least to have Kait with us, but knowing that she could be taken from us lingers in back of our minds like the elephant in the room.
