A Little Closer

I know it's been quite some time since I posted here. I think I finally have something to share. 

Well, since the last hearing on March 1st, we have been waiting for the results of DNA taken on March 21st. That day, the police brought the elusive, alleged birth mother to court and took her DNA sample. She told the judge, just like the alleged grandmother has said over the past 3 years, that she is not Olivia's birth mother.

We received "unofficial" news of those results in late June, then got the official result from the court on August 19th. Negative. The family at the center of this investigation for over 3 years, is not Olivia's biological family. We are so relieved and are thanking God!

Over the past few months, our case has been batted back and forth between courts, it has finally rested back where it's been for the past 2 years. Tomorrow morning is, what we've been told to be, the "definitive" hearing. We pray that the judge will finally see that WE are Olivia's family and he will grant adoptability so we can proceed with her adoption. 

We'd appreciate your prayers. Please also keep in prayer the remaining children and their families. There are many of us still fighting this battle.

I'll post again once we hear the outcome.

Thanks and God bless!
