For those of you who may not have facebook, I just realized I'd better share the good news here, too...

WE GOT A COURT DATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My attorney e-mailed early this morning and said, 

"I just got a call from the court! Your court hearing is scheduled for July 09, at 09:00 am Bulgaria time! The judge is beyond wonderful and she requested nothing in addition! I am almost sure it will all be victoriously finished next Monday :)!"

Every single prayer request was answered with a resounding YES! Every. Single. One. 

She's coming home very soon, folks!!!!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING! I am so incredibly thankful to everyone for praying so faithfully, and for believing when I did not. 

July 9th, at 9:00am Bulgaria Time, Samantha Love will be my daughter. 

Thank you, Jesus!!!!

Keep praying for God's protection over Sam, me, and this process. He is hearing us!!

Love to all of you.

  10. Oh Grace, this is wonderful news! Praise the Lord! This made my day!

    Samantha reminds me so much of our Ana. Their mannerisms are so similar, atleast from the videos of Sam that I have seen. At times I have thought that they even look alike. And I have thought this from the minute that we picked Ana up from the orphanage. Except that I tried playing and singing with a beach ball like you did with Sam and Ana didn't like it at all. She kept pushing it away and that might be one difference :).

    Samantha will be in your arms before you know it! I am so excited for you and Samantha that I can hardly stand it! :)

  11. Oh Grace! God said YES!!!!! Oh what marvelous news!!! It's on our calendar for Sunday night!
