Sad News


Yesterday we found out that our Feb. 25th court date was rescheduled to April 7th. They told us that MOWA(Ministry Of Women Affairs) didn't get our recommendation to the courts in time. So far, the majority of families that come upon their court dates get them rescheduled for various reasons. We have to remind ourselves that we are dealing with 3rd world countries that are not always as proficient as we would like.
We were devastated when we heard the news, but quickly leaned on God's sovereignty and grace. He directs our paths and we are resting in His perfect plan. Adoption always has it's ups-and-downs. This is one of the downs.
I didn't realize how much I already loved our boys until we got the news it was going to be longer until we got them. I so badly just want to hold them in my arms.
We continue to covet your prayers for not only our family and this process, but for the boys on the other end.

I will be praying that your next court date will pass. I received your blog spot from Lisa the other day. I am also waiting with Carolina Hope for a referral. The waiting process is difficult. I hear that there were several people who did not pass court. Your blog spot is great!

Blessings,
Gina
