It's true. WE DID NOT PASS COURT after all.
Last Thursday we were told that we PASSED our MOWA court date. But sadly, yesterday, we got the call from our caseworker telling us that we actually DID NOT pass. That our case had been mixed up with another case.
Needless to say it came as a HUGE shock and we have been walking through a lot of disappointment. We were moving at top speed preparing to board a plane this Saturday and it's hard switch gears...really hard.
While we are not thrilled or happy about ANY of this, we DO have a lot to be thankful for and we want to do our best to focus on those things.
First and foremost.... Justice is fine. She is safe and happy and is being VERY well cared for. She is still OUR GIRL and we know that even though this delay is painful.... we will have her in our arms soon. We will bring her home soon. (just not as soon as we thought)
Our MOWA court has been re-scheduled for 10/29. To be honest, we are not overly thrilled that the date is so far down the calendar, BUT we are still thankful to have a date. As far as our second court date (to appear)...That is still pretty sketchy. Hopefully, we will know more about that soon.
There you have it. (for now.) Please pray for all the moving pieces both seen and unseen. That every piece would be shifted and moved into place. Quickly. AND that we would be covered in peace and with wisdom and continued grace for the journey. That we would trust and believe.
