It's Official!!!!

Thomas Mwila Roberts is now officially part of our family. The week leading up to the appointment was rather hectic, but the Lord defended the cause of the orphan and moved in many ways on our behalf.

If I can take a moment to tell you some of the many prayers that He answered:
  1. After last Friday, we were told that a police report didn't exist for when Thomas was first placed into the orphanage. On Tuesday, a police report surfaced.
  2. That same Tuesday, we turned in the police report to Social Welfare and asked people to pray that the documents would be filed by this Friday's court date. The documents were on file!
  3. We asked people to pray that our Social Worker would be present in court. Not only was she present, but she was there before our attorney.
  4. This morning, when we arrived in court the judge's marshall was not present. They told us that we would need to reschedule again. We asked our attorney to contest and we began to pray. An hour later, we were sitting before the judge with a new marshall.
  5. We asked for people to pray that the judge would process the adoption quickly and without any more questions. She didn't even ask us a question. We were in and out in 20 minutes!
Thank you soooo much for lifting us up in your prayers. The Bible says that God desires to give good gifts to those who ask and He has done oh so much more. Thank you.
