Submitted the new document in court today and after taking a few minutes to explain the definition of Freehold as understood by UK law the judge finally accepted our application and we were free to proceed with the rest of the hearing. Ten minutes later after a few words from the prosecutor and then the Vidnoya social worker the judge retired to consider her ruling. Twenty minutes later she came back and announced that the adoption order had been granted and we would now be registered as the parents of, William Charles Vasili Davidson!
Thanks for all who were praying so hard for us we really appreciated it, we are thankful again to the God who hears and answers prayer!
Home tomorrow and then back out on the 19th with Leah to finally bring him home. It will be a tight thing to get his visa issued before the Christmas holidays but surely we are due an easy and straightforward trip after the trial and tribulations of our first two trips?! We will see....
Philip, Amanda, Leah & Will.
