Skype Call at 3:30 am.....

These past couple days have been very difficult for us. We knew that Holly, Trena and Cheryl were going to meet with DCFS to see if there was anything they could do to help with Mylee's case and also to talk with them about the House of Hope. We still haven't heard anything as far as the judge deciding to rule on whether we have to have Mylee's birthmom do her homestudy. They have diligently tried to find her...but no luck. I don't think she wants to be found. We did get our local congressman Timothy Johnson to send her a letter on our behalf. Plus Donnie and I also wrote a letter to her. We are praying that she will find it in her heart to issue our final decree without it.
All day I had a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach that the DCFS meeting did not go well. Before going to bed, I went in Mylee's bedroom and prayed over her crib. I just asked the Lord to bring our baby girl home very, very soon. Then when I was putting Maci to bed she wanted to pray. She prayed for BIG snow and she prayed that Mylee would come home soon!
Well, at around 3:30 am I heard our computer ringing a skype call. I raced down the stairs so fast and answered the call. It was John, Cheryl and Mylee! By the time I got it answered, everyone in the house was up and in front of the computer screen. Cheryl said "Do you hear a baby crying?" In the midst of being half awake/half asleep I answered "no". Then she said "Mylee is telling you to come and get her....the judge issued your final decree!" We all woke up really quick then! We were jumping up and down, laughing and crying! Praise God! We didn't need the birthmom's homestudy! Mylee is officially ours in Taiwan!!!
We did find out from Cheryl that the meeting with DCFS did not go well. At one point in the meeting they were even threatening to take Mylee away. Cheryl broke down in tears when she was telling us. God covered them with HIS protection and that did not happen.
We are just on top of the world with the news!!!! We feel so blessed and cannot wait to travel to Taiwan. We continue to pray that will happen very soon! Oh....I forgot to tell you that both of Maci's prayers were answered! Not only did we find out we will be bringing Mylee home soon....but we also got a BIG snow!!!!
Just look how happy Mylee is about the news!!!!
YAY!!!!! I'm a Farmer!!!!
