It is Official!



On August 3rd at 10:30 a.m. we went before the kindest, sweetest judge and he granted our petition to adopt Jacob!  It is official and final!  Jacob is a Bolte!  We stand in complete awe of a mighty God who showed us just how He moves mountains!  We are beyond grateful! 

It was the sweetest day.  Howard and I both gave our testimonies and the judge was just so sweet.  He came down and congratulated each of the kids on becoming a big brother/sister and talked with us for a few minutes about how he enjoyed reading our profile and how he is an adoptive dad himself.  We then headed for a celebratory Bolte lunch at IHOP at the kids' request!  Still processing it all and am in complete amazement of our God.
