Again, I don't know much. What I know is that we have a new hearing date of April 16. I don't think we need to be in California for that. Custody will not be decided on that day but rather it is basically a chance for attorneys to sit down and talk. We may be on a conference call with the lawyers and the birth father.
In any case, please pray for a softening of the birth father's heart. We appreciate his feelings but are, obviously, respecting the wishes of the birth mother. She wants him here. We want him here because we think it is the best place for him. Please pray that he would realize that we only want what is best for Matthew. I don't think we'll know a whole lot more after April 16 but please lift our family up in prayer between now and then as it will be the first time people actually come together to start trying to figure this mess out.
