Update...Not what we were hoping

For those of you not friends with us on facebook, Wednesday did not turn out how we imagined. We were contacted just two hours before we were to report to court that the hearing was being moved. One of the father's attny was just appointed and needed a continuance because he needed time to learn about the case. Needless to say, we were bummed. Our new court date is January 31st which pretty much guarantees that we won't be able to adopt before baby Livingston gets here as I hoped. I know God is BIGGER and has HIS own plan. I can say that I'm still sad. In the beginning I expected this process to take forever, but we kept hearing dates they expected it to be done. So I would get my hopes up each date. Then finally, I placed the hopeful date of having the children adopted by the birth of our third. Now if I had to guess (which I should probably stop doing) if we are able to adopt it will not be until at least summer. BOO!!! Please pray for this to all happen earlier if God sees fit.

So I've been trying to fix my eyes on the Lord and my heart on happier things.
We are continuing to trim and perfect our house for the holidays.

We've been enjoying time with cousins.

Hoping your days lately are slow and full of joy!

I'm sorry. He is in all the details and His timing will be perfect. :)
