We spent the next several months(6 to be exact) waiting... We could do absolutely nothing and had to place our faith in Will's lawyer. On July 11 of last year, Lydia was taking her brother to lunch when her phone rang... She described to me pulling the phone out of her purse, seeing the caller ID identify our case worker, and spontaniously bursting into tears before she even answered the phone... Will's(Julio Cesar at the time) last name was RING! All of the paperwork was finished and the adoption was finalized. The Guatemalan court system had ruled that he was ours! How good was our God. The process that was taking many 9 months to a year, took only 6 months for us and God was enabling us to hold our son before his 7 month birthday.
Life without Will?... We can't even begin to imagine it!
