Thanks for stopping by to check on us :)
Since my last post I am happy to report- nothing!
Well, nothing out-of-left-field-crazy at least.
No unexpected phone calls.
No last minute legal issues.
No heart breaking news.
Just a plain, old, happy life as a family of 5!
We are THRILLED to announce that Ruthie's adoption finalization hearing is scheduled for NEXT Wednesday, November 6th. Niles and I will "attend" the hearing in Florida via phone. The call should last about 15 minutes after which we will FINALLY become Ruthie's forever family and she will legally become a Ferguson.
To God be all Honor, Glory and Praise!
And to catch you up on the last few months here are some pictures of what we have been up to.
our Ruthie girl celebrated another milestone!
We also went on an end of summer trip with friends to Discovery Place!
The last week of August was full of milestones for big brother Turner!
First he started Kindergarten.
Then he had his 6th birthday!
big brother Calvin (and best buddy William) began preschool!
has been full of fall festivals, baby milestones (she's sitting all by herself already!) and little family adventures... but I'll save those photos for my next post.
Thanks again for checking on us! We are most grateful for your prayers and love.
One more thing!
This Sunday is Orphan Sunday.
On Orphan Sunday, Christians across the world stand for the orphan. We take the weekend to discuss and pray for ways to defend the fatherless…to care for the child that has no family…to visit orphans in their distress.
I am thrilled (and incredibly proud) to let you all know that, in observance of Orphan Sunday, Niles will be speaking at our church this Sunday.
We invite you to join us as we take a Sunday to meditate on OUR adoption into God's family through Christ as well as the "real" effect of adoption in our family.
We hope to see you there!
