I've Got Nuthin'

No court. Again. Stick a fork in me baby...I'm done!

This whole thing would be easier if I could somehow manage to have no expectations of success. When we signed up for Haiti we knew we were in for a two year wait (at least). However, with Ghana we had high hopes. Hopes of getting to court in June. Hopes of a homecoming in August or September.

August is right around the corner and we are sadly having delay after delay after delay. I know people don't have any control over how things run in another country. I definitely know this process is out of MY hands, but this momma's heart has a big aching hole in it where a little girl with big brown eyes belongs. I ache to hold her. I struggle to hold onto hope.
Be not far from me, O God;
Come quickly, O my God, to help me.
Psalm 71:12

So sorry, but it will happen (I imagine a lot faster than Haiti!) Delays are frustrating to say the least, but hang in there...

There's a reason it's repeatedly called the "sacrifice" of praise in scripture. It's so hard to thank Him for the hard stuff. But it's the best thing you can do right now to lift your spirits. He IS working in you, in her, & in the lives of your family and friends. I wish I could give you a big hug! One day she WILL be home and this will all feel like a bad dream!
