We started our day early. Everybody was up by 7am & dressed, ready to go by 8am. Everyone was neatly pressed & my hair was fixed for the first time in 34 days. We were headed to meet the judge. We were headed to put a face with the names on our paperwork.
We had the privilege to meet the judge & the family defender. The kids were wonderful, hugs & kisses for everyone, polite & said, “we want to go home, to the United States, to Texas.” The judge & the family defender were kind to our children & complimented on how sweet & beautiful that they are.
20min later we headed home to wait. And by wait I mean head to the park, watch a movie & then later head out for dinner & an indoor playground. We kept our usual routine & at dinner got a call from Lucy, “Still no news but we have reason to hope.” That´s all I´ve got for you friends, thank you for the prayers, please continue them especially this week as we hope & pray for news of Sentencia.
The kids are doing great. My teeth are rotting away from cough drops but they help get me through the day. Martha is such a wonderful Grandma, she works so hard every day & just loves so unconditionally on the kids. Tyler is the dad I knew that he would be, he is kind, consistent & is the father to these children.
I wish I had more for you friends but it will just be that much sweeter when the day comes that these children are officially ours & we will return home. We´ll dance & sing eventually, but right now we kneel & pray.
