ups and downs of adoption

We had a blast with our friends and Bono is just the definition of cool - more on that later once I get pics.

Upside of adoption- watching our dear friends Pam and Steve as they were introduced to their new, beautiful 5 year old daughter. Yes, they got their referral at our house!! What joy.

Downside- WAITING. Found out today that our case that we thought was left open during the closure has been closed. We now have to WAIT for a new court date. Yes, we wait some more. So heartbroken for my sweet boy. So ready to have him home, but we now wait.

Please pray for a new court date to be given quickly.

so sorry about your wait again. We are praying for you now, praying for peace and comfort until you hear GREAT news. I think it is special that my friend Alison Cook is the one who sent me your Gotcha Day video with Abe- I can't hear that song without thinking of y'all, and now I get to follow your journey with your new little man! Can't wait to see pics of U2!

I am heartbroken for you guys! I know that we don't know each other, but as we go through this adoption journey and all its ups and downs, I feel like I do know you. I have really been praying for your case to be heard and that you would pass. Sorry to hear it didn't happen. I'll keep praying...for both our boys!

You know how sad we are for you - but we are with you trusting in WHO God is. He is a GOOD GOD!! and He is a Sovereign God. As much as you know His timing is the best timing - the wait is such a time of refining fire. Praying for y'all and please know we are here for you!!
Love you friends!!!
