We did not pass court today ...

Such disheartening news we just received from Duni, our family coordinator. I know that she is just as saddened by this news because she was so completely invested in this herself. We got a short note from her saying that our case could not be heard today - and so now we are delayed until the courts re-open. Our court date is now scheduled for October 8.

There are many thoughts swirling through my head at the moment - and lots of logistics to take care of. Our 7 year old was registered for school - so I need to let the school and his teacher know about the delays. I believe our Home Study expires in September, so that will need to be updated. I'm so sad that our little boys have to wait longer for us to arrive - but I do know that things will all work themselves out in the end. Our agency, and Duni, did the best they could do for us, and I know that it is out of our hands - there was nothing more that could be done.

Thank you family and dear friends in our Yahoo Group for your prayers and unbelievable support. It means so much to us. Now we turn our focus to October when we will have a very large contingent of AWAA families appearing in court and getting ready for travel.

Karen and Family,
I am terribly saddened by this news. May you find strength in our Lord. "Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73:25-26
Praying for you and your family.
In Christ,
Hilary and Jacob Forrest

Oh Karen ~ so wish I could have logged on to read good news but we know HE is still God through this all. I don't understand the why's but I do know you are still covered in prayer and we will continue on for fall.
love, Jori

I am so disappointed for all of us. :-( I don't know why we went through these last few weeks going up and down this crazy ride, but I know in the end, it will all be for good.

Love you! Susan

I can't imagine how you guys feel right now, but next year at this time--your boys will be with you and this will be a distant memory. Praying for you as you wait until October (hoping that you have some busy plans coming up!!).
much love,
apryl

Our family is saddened by this delay as well. We were so hoping, but like you we will look to the October date. I cried this morning but now we must keep the faith and not give up! We will look forward to a very large travel group in October...and we will praise the Lord!
Love,
