Praise Report

We went to court today, and Fuzzy is still with us! The case was called and the judge ordered BM to take another drug test, and said that if it's a good test then she would have something positive to tell her. Well, she left with the bailiff to take a test. We sat and waited for 30 minutes before she came back. Then about 20 minutes later the CW came out and pulled us aside. She said that we must have had a lot of people praying for us. The test was not good so we will go back to court in December. They will send the test off to another lab to confirm the results. And in December they will be recommending the case plan be changed to Adoption. My heart just about leaped from my chest when I heard that. God is so good. Robert and I were both prepared to go into this hearing with guns blazing with our attorney, and put everything on the line. But something kept eating at me about doing this. I prayed about it and felt led to not go that route. I felt like we were trying to make our own way and not following God's way. Then we got our horrible news this past week, and started praying. I prayed and prayed for God to give me the strength to follow his plan. I knew that nothing would happen to Fuzzy that was not already in God's plan. So for now we are celebrating that our son is home, safe and sound. We will continue to pray, and thank God for everything.

Thank you to everyone that has been thinking and praying for us. I love you all!

i have been on the edge of my seat all day, and am so relieved and excited for you. i'm so glad that the judge took the time to make a thorough and thoughtfull decision. shame on those social workers for recommending reunification without making sure she was clean.
with each hurdle, you are one step closer to adopting him!
congratulations, momma!

I've never left a comment here before, but I'm a faithful reader. I am so happy for you, your husband, and Fuzzy. Ever since I read the post about you guys losing Fuzzy, I've felt sick to my stomach. What great news. It feels strange to wish that someone take more drugs and make more mistakes, but that's what I pray happens to Fuzzy's birth mother because I know that that's what's best for Fuzzy. Congratulations.

Congrats on one step closer! I have been down the foster/adoption road. It is a LONG HARD road to travel. Sometimes you wonder if you are doing the right thing, in the end it was worth it for us. I just found your page today but I will keep you and your family in my prayers because I've been there, done that. God Bless You.
