And the Wait Continues

Well, 4 weeks or so after court was supposed to happen, here we are, still nowhere. First the judge was out on maternity, then her baby got sick. The next judge was out with the flu. As of last week, we are on the third judge. I can't get angry at anyone. No one is to blame. We are in the cruel hands of circumstance.

Saule is working very hard to get this going but nothing has moved. I'm growing more and more impatient each day and I feel hopeless at times and optimistic at others. None of that truly matters because the fact is we are here, still waiting, and waiting and waiting.

Oh Ivy, what a frustrating twist of fate. I am feeling it with you. I'm guessing that outside of your, your family and dear friends, no one is more excited to get Dylan home than I am. I just can't wait to meet this little guy who will grow up with my little girl.

Big, strong hug to you and Bill-

Hang in there Ivy! I know it is hard, but God's timing is always perfect. We will pray that it will all be resolved very soon.

Oh Ivy, I am so sorry! I am sure it is really really hard, but try to stay positive. I cannot imagine right now what the reasons might be, but I agree with Hilary- God has perfect timing. I do sympathize completely with you and Bill, though...really cruel circumstances!

Ivy, I am praying that you know soon when you can travel to get D. I can't imagine how hard it is to wait.

I have bad days..and good days.
I think the group really helps on the ups/downs in adoption..
I love the blankets you are making..they are beautiful.
Maybe we will be traveling together! Saule is working hard for us too.
