Just wanted to pop in and let you all know we are doing well! Jacob is adjusting and making progress and so are we! We've taken him on trips to the zoo, the beach and many other local venues fir the first time and he is loving being outside. With both boys in baseball, on different teams, and Jacob's appointments with doctors and Early Intervention, we are a busy family and are very much looking forward to summer! We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and sweet emails and cards! We are so grateful. As we look ahead, we need only about another 500 dollars to be raised and we are looking at adoption finalization the first week of August! We are currently working on our monthly visits with a social worker so she can assess and make sure everyone is adjusting well and providing things keep on the way they've been going we should be final by the end of summer! Please continue to pray...this has been a hard but amazing journey and I am very grateful that the Lord has trusted us with so much!
Summer is fast approaching. We are finished with our curriculum at home for the year and are excited to go to the beach and explore the world around us. Howard has two more weeks, but will be moving to a new school next year so we will be helping him move throughout the summer. We are grateful he still has a job and look forward to what the Lord has in store. We look forward to lots of family time to continue solidifying our newly grown family and showing Jacob what being a Bolte is all about. God has been so faithful and so present. I am just so very grateful. Please continue to pray as the journey is far from over and there are many struggles. Adoption is such a gift, but it is important to remember that it is the result of a very broken world and so heartache and pain are also involved. I know Jacob's birthmom struggles and it breaks my heart. We still have some financial hurdles to jump and we are still working to show Jacob how to accept love. Could you pray for those specifics?
