Court tomorrow :)

Today has been a much better day, thanks to all of you who have sent me uplifting messages and scripture. Also it didn't hurt one bit that my mom is sending my sister in law Breanna to be with me as my sister Bridgett departs.
Tomorrow brings many changes, we will have our official ruling in the morning stating "I am Bennett's mom" Praise Jesus and also my sweet sister is heading home. I am so sad to see her go. Bridgett and Bennett have definitely formed a bond in the last nine days. Now with that said I probably have not held him more than an hour the whole time she has been here. Bridgett has gotten up every night with him and let me sleep. "BABY HOG"
As Breanna steps off the airplane Bridgett will be stepping on the same one headed to America. Tomorrow was supposed to be my return flight home as well, but with the many delays that will not be happening. But I will put a smile on my face and look for the opportunity that must lye ahead for me. I know the Lord did not keep me in this country just for fun, I have a purpose, plan and a destiny and I want to fulfill it.
There are many things the disciples were called to do that didn't "feel good" but they did them. Being away from my family doesn't feel good but God will see me through.
Pray for our ruling in the morning, I know all is well but a little last minute prayer never hurt anyone. Keep Breanna and Bridgett prayed up as they travel to and fro.
Ok since this is all about Bennett and not really supposed to be about me, let me tell you about that sweet boy. First he is growing so fast, the moment he finished with all those crazy injections and the syphilis was out of his body, this baby started to grow. His color changed, he is actually a black boy now. I had started to wonder. Bennett is very spoiled he sleeps in bed with me at night and as he starts to move I have bottle ready waiting to pop in his mouth. Bennett does not like to be cold nor does he like cold bottles, hot works best and they have to be shaken not stirred. He rules the roost. He has found his voice and loves to laugh out loud. Bridgett playes in the mirror with him and he laughs at himself. Bennett has a little afro going on, but I don't really know how to fix it, after 20 minutes, a bottle of gel and a pic Gladys asks me if I plan to do his hair. I am having so much fun with him I just can't wait to share him with all of you.
If you run into Scott, Colton, Haley or Hannah give them hugs and kisses from me.
I will blog as soon as I get out of court tomorrow. We must be there at 9 our time so 1 a.m. at home. When you wake good news will be waiting on you.
Thank you for continued prayer and support. Each day brings me one day closer to home.

Blessings
Sher

When is my turn to come be with you Sher? I want to come- I would quit my job just to come be with you. If (i pray that it doesn't) for some reason u have to stay longer and bre has to come home- I am all over it! :0) But I actually do hope that you will be returning home with Bre... and I am sure you will be. Can't wait to read your blog in the morning! Chase and I will be praying for the ruling. We love you- have so much fun with Bre.

Father God, Life is in the fast lane for the McGough family now,& they need an even faster lane to get those mountains out of the way of this road they are traveling. They know you can move those mountains that are slowing down their moving forward & you tell us if we have the FAITH OF A MUSTARD SEED, YOU WILL MOVE THOSE MOUNTAINS. Father, we (all the Mcgough/King/Saulter faimly) come into agreement w/Sherry & Scott & w/their FAITH & OURS, YOU WILL get her 2 airplane tickets leaving Kampala on 10.31.08. From this day forward, no more mountains standing in their way in Jesus Name. Amen & Amen. I love you baby girl & I can hardly wait to see you & Bennett. Praying continuously for favor. Love you, mom(Peg)
