When we arrived in the region, we went to court. The court consisted of three "jurors", a judge, and a secretary. After thirty minutes of introductions, discussions, and questions, we were approved to begin the bonding time with Peter. The judge had already met Peter and decided that he needed a family. When we left the court, we drove to the foster family and picked up Peter. It was a very emotional meeting! It has been seven months since we put Peter on a plane back to Latvia. We have missed him so much. Both boys have captured our hearts and both have a place in our family.
Tomorrow, we need to go to the market. We will take tram 7 to Stockmans and buy some groceries. I know Mike would like visit a museum, and the boys have some plans for a water park....yes....an indoor water park....in Latvia! I have been working on math facts with David and he is doing very well. Both boys are doing very well speaking and understanding English. I am very proud of my boys and I love them so!
Please pray for my family at home.....we are all homesick for one another! We skype every night, but I miss them so much. Pray for our family here as we bond with one another and for God to give us opportunities to minister as a family.
