Not yet

Just a quick update on where we are with the adoption. It has been 8 months since our referral, B and Y are now 20 months old and both seem to be doing very well. We are still waiting on the needed document. We have our 6th court date on this Thursday the 29th. We are praying for a miracle, that the document will be signed and delivered on time for court....will you please pray with us? We are also prepared (because it is very likely) to not pass court again. While we really really really want to pass this week and finally bring our babies home....we are really really really trying to trust in God's timing and rest in His peace.

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalm 28:7

Praying for you guys as well. If things dont go well tomorrow I might need you to tell me how you handle all this with such grace. I know I won't be as strong as you. I will need a couple of days of being a mess before I get myself together and have a positive attitude. You amaze me! I'm praying for a miracle.

We are praying for you and your children. I can't imagine how anxious you are to hold them. I remember their sweet faces so clearly from when we were there this past summer. I think of them often and promise to pray diligently this week for your court date and needed document. Hoping for good news.

YES! You are in our prayers. We will be checking in. I can't tell you how sorry I am that it is taking so long. I know the Lords time is better than our own but still it is hard. I admire your patience and knowing there is a CHANCE you might not pass. However I know prayers are going to be offered up and God is good! I will pray that the paper is there and hopefully you'll be on your way soon!
