Oh Praise Him . . .

Joshua 23:9-11 "The Lord has driven out before you great and powerful nations; to this day no one has been able to withstand you. One of you routs a thousand, because the Lord your God fights for you, just as he promised. So be very careful to love the Lord your God."

Today, we saw a miracle. The judge granted us PERMANENT GUARDIANSHIP. He is ours forever. No more court - we will raise him as one of our own, which he has already found that place in our hearts 8 months ago when he was a week old.

When we showed up in court today, we found out he had been assigned a lawyer. A very good one at that. And not only had this man been assigned to the case, he knew exactly every detail of the case. He talked to us in a small room before court and he was the first person in this whole process that had read the entire file, from our petition and questionnaire, to the CPS reports, and hospital reports. I was truly truly in shock and amazed all at the same time. FINALLY, a person who knew. Not only did he know, but he made the petition, today, no more wasted time and petitioned the judge to grant us permanent guardianship today. And the judge did. We were truly in awe. We felt like God sent an angel dressed like a lawyer, into the courtroom today, and it was quick, fast, right, and is now DONE! This case is closed, and he is ours.

Thank you all for walking with us in this journey - we thank God for each one of you.

O Praise Him
Turn your ear
To Heaven and hear
The noise inside
The sound of angels awe
The sound of angels songs
And all this for a King
We could join and sing '
All for Christ our King!'

How constant How divine
This song of ours will rise
Oh, how constant How divine
This love of ours will rise Will rise...


Ohh praise Him!
Ohh praise Him!
He is Holy!
He is Holy!

Turn your gaze
To Heaven and raise
A joyous noise
Oh the sound of salvation come
The sound of rescued ones
And all this for a king
Angels join to sing '
All for Christ our King!'

How infinite and sweet
This love so rescuing
Oh how infinitely sweet
This great love that has redeemed
As one, we sing...

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
He is Holy, He is Holy
