Bringing Dariya home: Swingtime fun

Monday afternoon was 75°, the rain had stopped and the sun had come out (beautiful to us) however, Dariya was dressed in a skirt, top and FLEECE jacket!!  She just wanted me to hold her, as she was so hot and not happy at all.  We took it off for a while but don't want to press our luck with the caregivers, they already don't send us out with hats most of the time because they have learned that she doesn't keep them on long.
Today is another beautiful day.  When we headed to the orphanage it was 60° we full well expected her to be in a snowsuit.  LOL but, to our surprise she was in a cute little dress with no jacket.  YAHOO!  She was much happier too and played lots with daddy. 
Another groupa had left their swings out so we took advantage of them, she LOVED it.
Signing "more"
A couple of updates
Diapers for Dariya donations on the chip in are up to $500 and many diapers have been sent to Courtney.  Thank you everyone who has donated to this cause. 

We learned last night that we have been assigned a judge who is not adoption friendly (meaning she could delay our court date for as long as she wants), so are asking for prayers that tonight's call from our facilitator brings good news that the judge has given us a court date (this week) and that our interpol clearances have come in.  Our process in the past 4 months has gone so smoothly that it was a bit of a shock for us to think that we might be facing a judge who might say no to this adoption.  So please pray for this judge's heart to be open when she hears our case and to grant us this girl who we love.

Will leave you with some Daddy and Dariya fun...Happy Tuesday!

We've been told to bring very warm clothes for Wilson when we return for court. They fully expected us to be there at the end of June. I can't imagine dressing him in a coat when it is 80-85 degrees!
We will be praying for your judge's heart and lifting you up in prayer also.
In the meantime, love on that girl all you can!

There is a company (www.snap-ez.com) that makes wonderful diapers and I think she "might" still have some of her discontinued styles that she was selling off at a discounted price. The owner is Ruth, and she has a beautiful daughter who happens to have DS, too. :) Anyway, it might help your funds stretch a little further if she has any of those discontinued diapers still.
