Happy 7th Birthday to Our Sweet Olivia! ¡Feliz cumpleaños!

                  Picture from her 4th birthday in 2009, the only one we were able to spend with her.

Today is Olivia's 7th birthday. We miss her very much and wish we could be celebrating with her today.

As for our case, we have found out that there will be a hearing with a new judge on January 11, 2013. Since the most recent DNA test done to determine whether the Guatemalan family in question, is biologically related to her, came back with an "inconclusive" result this past June, we're not sure whether the new judge will want to do another one or not. It's been 2 1/2 years since the first test was done and we're still no closer to an answer.

There has been some positive movement with many of the remaining transition cases in Guatemala and a few children have come home in the past few months! That's definitely an answer to prayer!

We continue to be prayerful and faithful that God will bring all the remaining children home to their waiting families very soon. We want this birthday to be her last without us.

¡Feliz cumpleaños Olivia! ♥ ♥
