Today is a very happy day for us; the day we welcomed the newest member of the Zuzunaga family! We were quite nervous about court but we were also very confident about why we were there and that helped us stay calm. It all only lasted about an hour and all parties agreed that our adoption of Maria was in her best interest. We were again reminded by the local education department representative that had we not come to visit Maria in July, before she turned 4 years old on September 17, Maria would have been transferred to the mental institution. And just so you know that the powers of darkness do not cease to try to thwart God's work, the moment we were walking out of the court room, all the lights in the entire building turned off and everything went pitch black. We KNOW God's heavenly army was battling during our entire court process because if the blackout had happened 10 minutes sooner, we don't know how that might have affected our hearing. Thank you all again for your prayers- we appreciate them and may you be blessed.
We fly home tomorrow and then will return here on November 6th, and will be coming home with our precious Maria on November 12th.
