Guess who the Lord brought home today?


JACK!!!!

And Elyssa's highcourt hearing went great--no objections from the judge. However, we were asked how we plan to take care of "so many" kids. We were honest and told the judge that we feel like we are giving our children a hope and a future through the love of family, the rest is rather relative as we trust in an all sufficient God to provide for all of our needs. We will go back to highcourt for Ethan in a months time--the lawyer is a bit leary of the "how will you care for so many children" question again. But we know that the Lord will finish, and allow to pass, the good work that... HE HAS BEGUN.

Praise the Lord! It's so wonderful that Jack now has his family! AND that Elyssa's court hearing went well. Will continue to pray for Ethan's. And praying for you and Zane as you stretch your arms to love so many. I know God will provide!
