September update

Well, we just received our monthly update for September from our agency. Our little guy is so gorgeous, I can't wait until we pass court so I can show all of you his cute little face! He looks like he is doing really well, which makes my heart not hurt as badly. I just can't wait until we are able to go and pick him up. Please, pray for Asher, for him to continue to be healthy, well nourished, well loved and cared for. Please also pray for this for all the children at the transition home that are waiting for their forever families to come and pick them up and for all the nannies and AWAA staff caring for our children and working towards bringing us all together.

Court opening delayed

We have been expecting the courts to open this week, however, today we recieved this email from our program director:

Dear Timothy & Shanon,
I know you are anxiously awaiting news on court after the long weeks of the closure. The court confirmed today that they will not be reopening until Oct. 12th. Once they begin work it will like take a week or more for them to issue new court dates.
I know this time of waiting can be so hard as you long to be united with your child. I am sorry that we will have to wait more time for any new news. I am hopeful that new court dates will be given for early November but we will not receive any confirmation from the court until they begin work again.
We will continue to pray for your family and will contact you as soon as we have any new information
God Bless,
Anna M. Graham
Director of Programs

This really stinks....in a huge way...we are so anxious to pick up Asher, we are missing so much. However, I know that God will unite us in His timing and it will all work out eventually, however, this is soo hard on my "mommy heart".... Please pray for us and all the families that had court dates scheduled for the time that the courts have extended their closure, as they have been waiting even longer to be united with their children and all will have to be rescheduled, so essentially, they are back to the same stage we are, waiting for a court date. Please also pray for Tim and I as we wait and wait....
