"BEAUTIFUL AND INTIMIDATING!"

Jessica called today. She said the relinquishment went through as scheduled and that our files are ready to be submitted to the courts for a court date - finally! We learned about Koko 8 weeks ago. We will not hear about a court date for several days yet, but at least it is forward movement. Come on court date! Delays be gone! Honestly, we have no idea how this is going to turn out but we will continue to be faithful and encouraged.

New update from Joanna:

"She is a beautiful little girl with soft features and an intimidating stare. She seals the deal with an abundance of smiles but can stare a hole completely through you! She combines all of this with an incredibly strong grip that will make you think twice about crossing her!"

So, family:

Be of good cheer! Do not think of today's struggles, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost. -Helen Keller

Love to all - onward.
