Court Rescheduled Again

Today we were notified that our court date has again been rescheduled for Oct. 31st. The courts have made some major changes in their procedures. They now want the birth mother to appear with three witnesses and they want medical testing done on her and the children for HIV. Needless to say, we are disappointed, but we again rest in the surety that God's timing is perfect and HE will bring us all together when He appoints it. We have to reschedule our flights and hotel reservations. (Ouch for the fees...$50 per ticket and we have six.) We are now scheduled to leave here November 18, Sunday through Monday, November 26. We will not be home for Thanksgiving but I couldn't think of a better way to spend it. My mom said, we'll just save the turkey and we'll celebrate when we get home. Please keep praying for us and our precious babies. It is very hard to know they are just waiting for us to get there and bring them home. May the LORD receive all the glory in this journey!

Oh, man!!!! It is so hard to wait, but we KNOW that God is in control of this whole thing, don't we? He has made it all so obvious... so we wait and pray.

Praying for your peace as you await these precious ones. What a wonderful Thanksgiving that will be and a great memory to pass along to them for many, many years.
