Today I received an e-mail from our attorney regarding our adoption.
I was excited for a milli-second.
Our "application" has gone to the judge that "would not give a guardianship order with the wording that is acceptable to the US Embassy". This is the judge we were praying would not get our case. The correct wording is needed in order to get visas for the children to come to the US.
This battle has been going on for quite a while.
Our attorney didn't give any indication that he had a grandios plan of making sure we get these children home.
It sounded pretty bleak. Almost hopeless.
But... my hope comes from the Lord. And He is good.
I know God is in control. I know that He can work in and around this judge. I know that He has a good and perfect plan. I know that there is a greater purpose in all of this.
But right now... I'm having a hard time breathing.
And tears fall easily.
We covet your prayers.
