After 900+ days in the foster system as wards of the State of Oklahoma, 3 young children will forever change our lives this week.
At 10:30 am on Tuesday, 14 March 2017, our entire family (all 8 of us) will stand before a judge at the Oklahoma County Juvenile Justice courthouse to legally adopt two boys and one little girl.
After that, we’ll be free and legal to share all of the pictures and videos that have accumulated since our first meeting on August 27th–so be ready for the onslaught! 🙂
For now, please (!) know how much we would cherish your presence in court at our side! So many of you have supported us in so many ways over the past few months. How wonderful would it be for these children to see, feel, and hear an outpouring of love from so many of the great people in our lives?!
We want them to truly understand:
“Today, we’re getting a forever family. We’re also entering a community of Jesus-followers who will be there to support our family.”
For that reason–and many more–we’d love to have you there celebrating with us. Our appointment with the judge is for 10:30, though we can’t be certain we’ll be called back at exactly that time. Once she (the judge) calls for us, we’re told the process will take approximately 15-20 minutes.
