Still No News

Thursday afternoon our agency coordinator called to tell me that she will be on vacation from July 31st through August 10th!!! She had no news from St. Petersburg for us. Our dossier has been filed with the courts, and they are reviewing it all right now. We are waiting to see if they accept it or if we will have to redo any documents. If it gets accepted, we will get a court date. It looks like August may be impossible now! I've been very disappointed the last few days. Emma turned 18 months on the 24th. The clock is ticking, and she is continuing to grow up without us.
We really feel very helpless right now! Please say a prayer for us that we will get some good news soon although I know that nothing will probably happen until our coordinator returns.

Praying. I know how hard it is to wait. We are soooo ready to go to China for our girl. Hopefully we'll both be on big birds in the sky in September!

I know you must be disappointed but just remember that although she's been without your family for 18 months, she's going to have y'all for the rest of her life!! And, your family will have her. Think of how amazing that is...

Hopefully, it will be very soon! Keeping my fingers crossed! Waiting and not knowing is the hardest....

How frustrating for you all! I hope you have good news as soon as possible. I don't know Tara, but I think her point is right on: she's been without you for 18 months, but she'll have you for the rest of her life!

I'm so sorry to hear that you are going through this tough time. I just wish I lived closer so that I could help you or at least give you a big hug. Once your sweet little girl is in your arms, this will all be a distant memory.

I'm saying a prayer for you and sending you positive thoughts!

Oh... I know too well the disappointment you are feeling. Those same delays happened to us.

I know this doesn't make it any easier to wait... but looking back, I can see God's perfect timing. He is so good and He cares so much for Emma and for your family! He is not slow about His promises... it just feels that way.

On another note, would you recommend your agency? The agency I was working with just got cut off from Russia. : (

August 10 is just around the corner! I will pray today that her return from vacation will bring you lots of good news. Try to keep yourself busy this weekend. She will be worth the wait! I cannot WAIT to see what the Lord has in store for your family with Emma!!!
