BRE Court Date!

We just got news that we passed our BRE court date!  This is one of 3 pieces of the puzzle that we need to go to our adoptive family court date, where we will meet Matthew finally.

What is a BRE court date?  Well it is when the birth relatives or finder/police officers (if an abandonment case) go before the judge for an interview. The judge could request additional interviews at times.  In our case he didn't need any additional investigation or police reports so we passed the first court date.

Please continue to pray as we still need our PAIR approval letter and the MOWCYA letter in order to obtain our adoptive family court date.  While we wait we will rejoice that we are 1/3 of the way done with this portion of the process!

Happy Birthday Daniel

Happy Birthday Daniel!  I can’t believe he is 6 already.  We are so proud of the little man he is becoming.  He has such an infectious spirit about him that everyone falls in love with him the minute you meet him (that will be a problem in a few short years haha).  He is so fun to be around and cares so much about everyone. 

Over the weekend we had his big birthday celebration.  And as usual we had my favorite part, the cake making!  This year he decided to go with a Monsters University theme.  This was so fun to turn the house into a dorm room.  Instead of a big party at Chuck E. Cheese this year all he wanted was to celebrate with his family.  

Here are a few pictures of the big 6 year old and his celebration.


Every year on Daniels birthday I can’t help but think of his birth mother.  I pray that one day we will meet her in heaven and she will see what an amazing young man Daniel has become.  I thank God for her decision but my heart also aches that she can not see this amazing, caring, loving, funny boy that is now my son.
