Court Date

On Friday, we FINALLY received our court date! 


Lord willing, on May 7, these two little munchkins will officially be Jones' boys.


And the first order of business (outside of lots of snuggles and kisses) will surely be a wardrobe change! I'm pretty confident that our "big guy" (on the left) is wearing a pair of shorts for a 3 or 4 year old as his pants and his shirt is more suited to a 70 year old man golfing in Florida than to our happy, silly baby boy. Our "little guy" on the other hand is sporting a yellow terry-cloth blazer and gingham, ruffled shorts with flowers on them. I'm not sure which is worse, but I do know that I'll be packing their dinosaur pajamas and striped onesies for our trip.  


We are so thankful, excited, overjoyed, and even a little shocked- the reality of it all is just starting to sink in. Thank you for supporting us, for praying for us, and for hanging in there with us throughout this very long journey. 


Though May 7 is much later than we had hoped for, we are confident that May 7 is the right day.


"I am well pleased with thy will, whatever it is, 
or should be in all respects,  
And if thou bidst me decide for myself in any affair,
I would choose to refer all to thee,
for thou art infinitely wise and cannot do amiss,
as I am in danger of doing."

- "God the All" Valley of Vision
