One Court Date Down…and 9 Months Old!

Selah had a big week! She turned 9 months old and we heard about her TPR court hearing all within a few days of each other!

Here are some pictures of Selah. She is such a character…we ge
t smile after smile from her, but put a professional photographer in front of her and she’s all serious. She’s that way with most people, actually, except for a few lucky individuals 🙂 Oh, she makes us work for it!

She also has TWO teeth now…her two bottom. That explains the day-time fussiness we’ve been seeing lately! And she is moving all around now. She’s
not technically crawling, but she’ll scootch, roll, and throw her body where she wants to go! It works pretty well, actually!

And the first big court date went successfully this week. The hearing was to terminate the birth parents’ legal rights. There was, naturally, excitement with this date, but some sadness as well. Just another reminder that we live in a broken world. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. But I am so grateful God has her with us, and we love her dearly. Soon we will get to schedule a court hearing to finalize the adoption where she will then legally become our child. YAY! That will be a happy, happy day, if the Lord sees fit!
