No Go

One last, last ditch effort to explore.
Otherwise it's July, at the earliest.
Govt' protocols are complex, and you can get caught by them when they are left to individual interpretation.
International adoption is not for the faint of heart.

Ours hurt.
We are devastated.

Oh fricking A. Damn. Damn, damn! So sorry for this maddening news.

International adoption is not for the faint of heart. Luckily yours is sturdy and strong.

Praying for you. Knowing that our sovereign God does all things well and for his Glory, even when it hurts and we don't understand. We are heart broken and sick with you about M, knowing that she must have so many thoughts and emotions going on..

Oh, I can just imagine the hurting heart. I am so sorry. We can pray about the last ditch effort you were talking about, right?

Oh, the ache, so sorry.

Eastiopians said...

Oh no. This is not what we wanted. But, I fully believe that your day to get her is already determined...if only we had a glimpse of that date in God's plan so that our human instincts would not be so crushed, disappointed, and saddened along the way. I hope that you & Marta will be able to find peace in knowing that your day has already been determined. It is there. Trust God to give you strength and hope until your day comes.

"If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day."

We hurt for you, but particularly for your dear daughter Marta. I pray that the last ditch effort will come through and that Marta will not have to wait until July to be united with you.

We're praying for your hurting hearts this weekend and for God to bring your daughter to you sooner than you expect.

I'm so sorry M. Waiting stinks. Especially when your little girl is also waiting on you guys. Praying, praying, praying for your family.

So, so sorry to hear this! Prayers will continue. Take care of yourself. I feel so bad for all of you.

Zoe said...

Just catching up with you and read your recent news. Ugh. So sorry!! it must really hurt. This too shall pass and it will one day seem like a blip of time, covered over by the joy of being finally together. My prayers are with you.

J, A and T said...

So sorry to hear this. Praying for you all!

Colleen said...

I am disappointed, but only a fraction of what you're feeling. It should be a no-brainer for that govt, but there is nothing more you can do, unless the last-ditch effort comes through!

Nikki said...

So very sorry. Praying for you and for Marta.

Andrea said...

International is not for the faint of heart, but "Jesus, I Trust in You!"

You will get there.

Your family is in our prayers.

Sara said...

Sigh... I'm so sorry to hear about this setback. I'll keep my fingers & toes crossed for some red tape to be cut, for a loophole to be found & for something magical to happen so you can all be together soon.
