More Waiting.....................

Just heard back from our agency that we didn't pass AGAIN!! I think this is the most discouraged I have ever been. We had been told that our papers had been approved by MOWA, but when our case went to the judge today, thay had NOT been signed off on. I am not sure where the confusion comes from. The judge, knowing it was MOWA's fault, ordered them to review our papers. They left our case open, again...... There were 9 cases today and none passed.
Keep praying that our open case won't go for 2 months again, but a few weeks. I know there are a lot of families out there today that are feeling just like us. I know adoption has it's ups and downs, but I wasn't expecting this much!! :)
I will affirm again, that God is good, perfect and sovereign. He knew all this ahead of time and we will trust in Him. I would rather be in the shelter of His Wings and live in His perfect Will, than having been approved today and be living without the Lord in my life and not have His hand of blessing on our lives. I trust Him!!

Psalm 20:7 "Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God." or......... Some trust in judges, some trust in MOWA, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.

Oh, I'm so sorry Cara. I was really hoping today would be your day. I can't believe how long this is being drawn out for you guys. Everything is so beyond my understanding of how this court system is working. I also don't understand why it seems like other agencies have an easier time getting through court than ours. I'll be praying for you - God is faithful and merciful.

Dear Jason & Cara, I am sorry that things did not work out as we hoped. Without a doubt God is still in control and His date has not changed for Johnathan and David to come home.I am still TRUSTING and believing in God wisdom and patience to rest, rule and abide on all of us as we watch Him work His plans out.

Much Love, Dorothy

I am so sad to hear that, and frustrated for you as well. I will let you know that your boys are well, and we took lots of pictures of them. My daughter loved carrying Mussie around. Teketal liked kicking the ball around; very cute. I pray you are carrying them and playing with them soon!
