Happy Birthday Madison!

Today is Madison's second birthday. We never thought we would not be spending this special day with her but are still trusting that someday soon we will all be a family. We hope and pray that she is having a special day today and is truly blessed by God.

We have a court date but it is not until the end of June.

We received an email from our attorney and in the translation we found out that we have a court date on June 24. The email stated that it was a final hearing which we are praying that final means final. I have emailed our attorney asking for more clairfication but I have not received one back. We have also asked or adoption agency for more information but have not heard from them either. We also learned that Madison is for sure in an orphanage. We are praying that sometime in July we will officially be a family of four but after all of our ups and downs we are keeping our emotions in check. We do not want to get our hopes up and then have them shattered yet again.

The weather has been in the upper 80's the past few days so we decided to take advantage of it and enjoy some time outside. On Monday we took Jacob to the zoo for the first time. (We did go to Boo at the Zoo but in the dark you can't see any animals) He seemed to have a good time and really enjoyed the petting zoo.

Today we spent some time outside in the yard.
