Court went well - now in the waiting period

"I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. Selah" Psalms 3:4.

Thank you all for joining us in prayer. We had court. It took about an hour and then the judge, two jurors, and prosecutor left the court room to make their decision. They came back about 20-25 minutes later. The judge read a document that pretty much summed up everything that was in our paperwork and what was said, and then said that the court agrees that it is in the best interest of the girls...for us to adopt them!!!!!! We praise the LORD for being our shield and our confidence. We still have the just over 10 day appeal period to go through, but if there are no appeals, we will be the proud parents of two daughters! Thank you Lord for the kindness you showered on us this day!

Praise the Lord! It's an unbelieveable moment to get that reply from the court! Glad your court meeting was brief - ours was 4.5 hours which included the judge reading every page of our homestudy outloud...Will you stay in Ukraine during the waiting period?

We are staying during the waiting period. Due to the cost and time required to go all the way home and back, it made more sense to stay. Besides, we are getting some great bonding time with the girls.
