Waiting on a Court Date

My heart is aching for my children, so far away! There are so many of us praying for the courts to hurry up and open!! I've not checked lately but I think it is somewhere around 22 families!! Some of them got referrals for tiny little babies that are growing quickly, we so badly want to wrap our arms around them and bring them home. We look at pictures and we watch video that we are blessed to have other families give us. It is so hard knowing they are so far away. What if they are sick, what is they are sad? As a parent we want to comfort them but we can't! 20 more days till courts reopen, even then there is no way to guess when we might be able to go meet them. Adoption is not for the faint of is HARD!! From application till when they are home and even after it is HARD! These children are so worth every tear, every struggle, every sacrifice,every bit of waiting! So when we make very frequent posts on our blogs and Facebook, and we are constantly selling something;) we do it all for our children! What would you do for yours? And what would you do if they were thousands of miles away hurting, scared and lonely? You would do anything wouldn't you?!
 Mommy and Daddy are coming soon!


  1. Hang in there! God is watching over them for you! I can't imagine how HARD this wait must be for you! Praying your court date is very very SOON!!!!!! You are right! They are worth every moment of struggle and anxiety in the waiting.....though I pray your wait is over soon! :)

  2. Hello! My husband and I along with our 2 boys are adopting a little girl from Ethiopia.....we are having a hard time finding out if it is ok to post her picture on a public site before court. I see you posted pics of your 2....have you heard a definitive answer on this?? Thanks so much!! Court date yet? We are waiting to!
