Overwhelming Joy

At last, at last, at last! At about 2:30 am on April 1, 2011 the judge approved the adoption!!!

I am so happy. So incredibly filled with joy! My sister's coming home! After a year and a half, my baby's finally coming home!

The nerve-wracking uncertainty is finally over and now all that's left is to wait in excitement! The countdown begins... 16 days until Eva Noel Hook is home to her forever family!

We had such an army of prayer being spoken over us and over the court and over Evan the past two nights. It was unbelievable. I know that hundreds of people fasted and prayed - people we've never met before in our lives, people that live across the world. God works in such incredible ways! He united hundreds, maybe thousands, of his followers in the lifting up of one little girl. And now thousands more will see her worth and the worth of children like her!


  1. Oh Tori, I'm so happy! Happy for you, happy for Evan, happy for Russia, (still a little sad about the other orphans though) and happy for the judge! She's coming home! Hallelujah!

  2. I'm so happy for you all! But why is going to take so long for her to come home? Praying for a safe journey!
