Wow this wait is hard

Wow! This part of the wait is hard.  

The waiting for a referral was way hard too.   I guess just waiting and learning to be patient is just plain hard, no matter what.  But, now that we have a face and a name and updates on baby E, this is so  tough.  

I never knew I could love a baby all the way  across the world that I’ve never held,  but I do and I am so in love with her! So now we just wait and pray for the courts to reopen and when they do that speedy court dates will be given.  I’m praying for all  the other families with referrals that they too will get fast court dates so they can bring their babes home!

I’m sure your hearts are heavy for your little ones as well.

Justice is what love looks like in public
