Still Praising God!

I still can't believe he is finally our son! We are finally beginning the journey to bring Daniel home. It still may be up to 8 weeks before we get to travel but at least we know he is ours forever! God is so good and I am so thankful we have never lost faith, in fact we have grown in our faith and love for God through this journey. I can't believe we can finally see the day ahead when we will be holding Daniel in our arms and kissing those chubby cheeks. I can't wait! We have not stopped thanking and praising God yet and I don't think in my heart we ever will. God has given us the best gift he could have given us. A beautiful bright eyed baby boy and he is all ours. I can't wait to bring him home and go for walks, go play in the park, just hold him and rock him to sleep, watch him play with his cousins, open his Christmas presents (yes we have not opened his Christmas presents and the tree is still up with all of them underneath it, they are his and they will wait for him to come home), kiss his cheeks and just tell him how much he is loved. I want to thank everyone for the love and support you have given us through this journey. The angels were having one big party yesterday when he was declared officially a Heddleson. Now we have to pray for quick travel plans. Also please keep other families waiting to pass court from AWAA in your prayers. There were quite a few of us that went to court yesterday but did not pass because MOW@ didn't right all the letters. Please pray for their hearts and strength as we know first hand how hearing that you didn't pass because there wasn't a letter is so incredibly hard. It is all worth it though when you get that call that you passed and the child is officially yours! Here are a few pictures that weren't in the video. These were taking March 2nd by the McDaniel family:

PRAISE GOD! I haven't been online and when I asked Brian and Chrissy about you this morning in SS they told me you passed and he was yours and all I could was throw up my arms and say "Praise God! Glory! Hallelujah!" I will continue to keep you in my prayers as you wait for travel and hope to meet you some day! BLESS THE NAME OF THE LORD!Erika
