"One more signature" really means .....

one more signature from the one who gave his "one more signature" originally so that our case could even go to court at all. Despite that obvious fact, and the signature already on the file, our next step to a final court decreed adoption is that the judge's clerk will take a letter to the "one more signature" signing authority, and "one more signature" will in person, in presence of the clerk, sign the letter given to him by the clerk. When THAT is delivered back to the judge , our case may be completed. I am amazed, or maybe dismayed is the correct adjective, that it took all week for this directive to be arrived at: the court had our case all week, but this determination was made late Friday. SO, once again, not the Friday afternoon news we were hoping for, but at the very least, they are paying Daniel's case some attention and we HAVE moved a bit in the forward direction. We continue to pray that God sustain Daniel until he is released to come home, join our eager family, be loved on and begin critical medical treatment for his hydrocephaly. How we praise God that He has sustained Daniel this long!!!
HAD I left for Dulles Airport on Friday it is very likely that I would have been stuck in Houston for an unforeseen amount of time. IF I had gotten as far as Dulles, well, that Saturday night flight bound for Ethiopia is now backed into Sunday morning. My son Joshua who lives in in the middle of this storm center shared some photos from his yard. I'm glad he likes cold weather and was having some fun with the snow. I am very glad that as I look out my windows I only see a lot of birds happily feasting at our bir feeders and a gray day with mostly melted snow from last Saturday's snow storm here in Oklahoma!
Bear in mind that my son is 6' 2" and over 200#. This is a lot of snow!!!! Here are my son and my daughter-in-law soaking up some misguided manifestations of Global Warming. AKA the 2010 "Snowmaggeddon"
