Still a little in shock and disbelief that I am writing this post. We’ve been in process to bring home our little guy from Korea now for over 2 years. There were many, many days where I swore it just wouldn’t happen. The wait has been excruciating and we have felt defeated a lot. However…the email that we have been really waiting for FINALLY came! We have a court date!!!!!
We will be packing our bags and headed to Korea the end of this month! Our court date is actually set for the first Friday in September, but we will have other things to do in Korea that week as well before that day. The most important one being WE GET TO MEET MAVERICK!!!! Any time I think of it I get completely overwhelmed. The sweetest little face that I’ve been staring at and falling in love with every day for over a year will be right in front of me. Sometimes I feel like it’s all a dream and I just need to be pinched and wake up!
So….for those who are always asking how they can be supporting us/praying for us:
1) pray for favor with flights and hotels. Last minute trips to Korea are not cheap so we can use all the help we can get on some lower prices!
2) favor with the court. Pray for us to remain calm and peaceful in court and that the judge sees that our hearts are in the right place in wanting to adopt Maverick.
3) pray for quick turn around time from court to custody. We won’t bring him home the first trip and that wait in between is going to be so tough I know!
4) pray for Maverick’s heart to be prepared for what is to come. As the day approaches, as excited as I am, my heart also breaks knowing he’s about to lose foster momma/family and that he won’t truly get what is happening. Also for foster momma’s heart too as she’s had him for almost 2 years now since he went into the system and I’m sure saying goodbye won’t be an easy thing.
Thank y’all all so much for the support, prayers, kind words, excitement that you’ve given us! We are so grateful for our tribe that has been lifting us up this whole process! We could not do this without you!
LET’S GO TO KOREA ❤️💙❤️💙❤️💙
