Never to be "revoked" again.

"And no one can snatch you out of My hand."  John 10:29

What a beautiful promise.

One that can never be "revoked" 

{revoked: to put an end to the validity of a promise}.

This Thursday, Zane and Ephraim will be standing before a judge so that a previous court order can be revoked.  This will open the door for us to finally begin the steps to legally make Ephraim our son, forever.  

I was talking to Ephraim about what is going to take place.  I assured him, through tears, that we are his mommy and daddy forever--"no one will snatch him out of our hand."

A promise we have made to each of our children.

The same promise the Lord makes to His children.

Please pray with us for this court hearing {this Thursday at 9am}.  

There is a chance that it could change the history of adoption in this country {in a negative way}.  

Pray for the three judges and the decision that will be set before them.

And that the Lord would have His way in the life of our precious son.
