Ok, if anyone was still checking back to see if we got guardianship,WE DID! Matter-of-fact, we received the paperwork today that makes it 100% official! WOOT WOOT!
Our stinker is no longer a "foster child" but a child of ours! (Well, not adopted, but loved just the same.)!
I know it seems odd that I chose THAT to be our first picture of her posted on here, but that picture, friends, speaks volumes. S (she doesn't want me to post her real name yet--she prefers Stinker. ODD GIRL) is such a fun girl. She is always up for an adventure and loves to laugh. She is so tender with the girls. She cheers them on when their afraid, does gymnastics with them to make them strong, prays with them, tickles them, encourages them, and just plain loves them. And, oh, that feeling is mutual. We're so thankful to have her as a part of our family!!!!
Sorry for delaying that good news. The hearing was Friday, followed by a HORRIBLE virus hitting our house Saturday. Satan did NOT like what happened on Friday, for sure! So, I'm finally among the living tonight. Bottom line, THANK YOU FOR THE PRAYERS!
On one last VERY important note...my mom is having hip surgery tomorrow. Total hip replacement, actually. PLEASE pray with me for accurate surgery, my mom's safety throughout, swift healing, and strength for my dad and family. You guys are the best at praying, THANK YOU for loving us, through this blog.
