Many have asked for more details, and are concerned for us, so I wanted to address what the delays are about.
Basically, because of the type of adoption Jonah's case is, we have to wait out a legal 30 day period after his birth, before we can pick him up. Then we need to have a court hearing that will make us his guardians, and then finally 3 months later, we will finalize his adoption.
What happened was that our attorney informed us Monday, that the judge will not schedule his hearing until after the 30 days is up, which is end of the day today. So, we can't ask for a hearing date until tomorrow :( And based on the judges schedule, it looks like we won't get a hearing for another week. We are requesting an emergency hearing, so it could be sooner than next Thursday, but we need another miracle for that to happen.
If I'm being honest, this really upsets me. And quite frankly should have been told to us a long time ago. Like before we planned travel, babysitters, hotel etc.
But it is what it is.
God has a plan and a purpose.
We believe that.
But it still hurts and that is okay. God is big enough to handle my frustration. I'm not afraid to bring my anger to Him, He can handle it.
So now we wait... hopefully by Friday I'll know what our travel dates will be, I and will definitely keep you all in the loop!
Thank you again for all your love and support, it means more than you know.
And cause I can't post without a picture... here's the kiddos on Halloween!
