This morning we awoke to an email from dear friends at our church who have walked every step of this journey from day one with us. They said:
That will likely prove to be prophecy.
Yesterday contact was made with an attorney who agreed to take our case. Today we met at noon and she called us a short time later to share that she had wonderful news!!
The judge is supportive of our case and agreed for our dossier to be pulled from the file to be submitted to the SDA for the referral for the fourth boy. Likely our appointment for that referral will be early next week so we will return to Kiev Sunday or Monday for two to three days.
This additional child’s paperwork will not be completed in time for the originally scheduled court date of May 20th so the judge offered a new court date of May 27 for all four children.
We will be up early tomorrow to meet a taxi to the notary’s office to complete the required petition to request our third referral appointment.
If all goes as expected we will likely be here four more weeks and return home the middle of June.
Our friends’ email concluded with this verse…it says it all.
