OH HAPPY DAY - SHE GETS TO STAY- FOREVER!!!

Yesterday morning we FINALLY got the news that the Judge had made her decision, she ruled in our favor and Mary gets to be a permanent part of our family. It has been a stressful few weeks and we feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off our shoulders:)
I knew that once I started calling people to share the news that it would travel fast, so Aunt Tiff had a great idea to tell Mary at school by taking her balloons and flowers. It was a special treat for me to finally get to tell her the news and that she didn't have to worry any more:)
She was so excited and happy!!! What a special little girl - we are so blessed as a family. Words can not express how relieved, happy and grateful we feel. Thank you to all our friends and family who have been fasting and praying for us. Our cup is overflowing with gratitude to a loving Heavenly Father who has heard and answered our prayers!!!
