No Court News


Our court appointment did not occur today due to power outages on Monday. The letters of recommendation weren’t prepared in advance by CYAO (the Children Youth “something, something” – thanks to my dear friend for defining it for me). Lacking power on Monday, CYAO could not prepare documents for Tuesday. Not a lot of advance planning going on! They hope to reschedule us, and the rest of Group H families, for later this week.

There is at least one woman in Group H who would have become a mother for the first time today, so my heart is with her rather than focused on my own disappointment.

I trust in God’s unfailing love forever and ever.
I will praise you forever for what you have done;
In your name I will hope, for your name is good.
I will praise you in the presence of
your saints.
Ps.52: 8b-9

    I am so sorry! I called before I read. Call me if you need to talk. Maybe a milkshake would be good tomorrow! I know a great place. 🙂

    At least this time it wasn’t that you didn’t pass court:). Sorry to hear, though, I thought of you a lot today.

    What a huge disappointment! I know another family went to court Monday and passed, so I wonder what’s up with an electric outage? Very sad. I will pray for a speedy reschedule!

    Sad. 🙁 I’ll be praying. Oh, and that picture of Little Man and Boo makes me wish I were home to squeeze them.
