It's official


After three trips to the high court (a 3 hour round trip), and a few hours of waiting, and a one hour hearing, we are now the official legal guardians of our 5th Ugandan child!! We are so humbly blessed to be the parents of this amazing little boy. He is so full of life despite the fact that the enemy tried his hardest to snatch it away. Ethan loves to sing worship songs and has such a sensitive spirit. Praise the Lord with us,


"He places the lonely in families." Pslam 68


I asked our lawyer if he was willing to take on another case, this time to obtain legal guardianship of the baby. So, I will take a month break (although I am in the midst of working on passport applications for two children) and begin all the necessary steps to re-hire our lawyer for another trip to highcourt--wonder if there is a "obtain legal guardianship for 5 kids and get the 6th one free" discount? Haha.

Great news! And you know how I feel about bargains, so a "buy 5, get 1 free" plan sounds great to me! :)
