three beautiful words

Today we received an email titled with the three most beautiful words "Court was successful!" We are now the legal parents of Faith Shetu Judkins. She is ours, an official member of Team Judkins!! Our hearts are rejoicing and praising our Father in Heaven!
"Sing to God, sing praise to his name, extol him who rides on the clouds his name is the LORD— and rejoice before him. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,is God in his holy dwelling." (Psalm 68:4-5)
The next step is getting our official approval to immigrate Faith to the US. Continue to pray along with us for the following:
* final approval from US immigrations to adopt a child with special medical needs
* all paperwork to move quickly in getting a birth certificate and passport for Faith
* Appointment with the US Embassy in Ethiopia (this appointment is when we will actually travel to see her and bring her home!!)
* that we can use our miles to fly to Ethiopia
* all the details to come together for Kevin's work, this time of year is very busy for him at work and there are many projects that will have to be passed on to someone else while he is away and bonding with Faith upon returning home.
* peace for our boys, they are so excited about Faith coming home, but it is also alot of change
* protection over Faith's brain until we can get her home, kind people to love on her and the nourishment she needs to make it each day

Thank you for sharing this journey with us!!
