He is OURS.....

Well at least in Jamaica.  :-)  It was a great day today.  We were not looking forward to the wait at court because last time we were waiting for court it was 4 hours and Dontae got sick from too much heat.  You see outside the doors are some long benches and you come earlier then 10:00 just to get a seat and you sit there and wait for your name to be called.  Right along with a zillion other people.
But today was different.  First off when we got there and got our seat, Dontae had to make the rounds and charm the pants off of every person there. (which was the cutest thing ever)  and then with in a half an hour Ms. Brown called us in.  We went up stairs to the judge and sat down, while Ms. Brown read all about us, and Dontae decided at that moment to make noise and talk and talk and talk.  Can't understand a word he was saying, but he was sure talking anyway.  Then we get to the end of the reading and the Judge looked at us and said the  words which were music to our ears.  "I grant you the licence to adopt Dontae"  YEAAAAAAAAAAAA and we clapped, and then Dontae clapped too.  Then the judge said, your child is one of the very few Jamaican children that she has seen in there that is so happy and active as him.  We were surprised to hear that, but we also have had Dontae in our care for almost 11 months now.  Where most Jamaican children do not get that opportunity. Needless to say, we were so happy and proud at that very minute.  So now we are working hard to get the rest of this finished here so we can bring our son home. Thank you everyone for all your prayers.
God is Good!

I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU AND YOUR NEW LITTLE DONTAE LAU. He will live a happy life, that is for sure with lots of love and laughter and a family that will give him everything he will need. PRAISE THE LORD that you have almost finished the "race" and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
