Still No Court Date

Unfortunately, we still do not have a court date.  Bummer, big time.  So, no news here.

Still just begging God for his patience, for his peace.  One thing that I realized yesterday that does bring me peace is this.  Our baby girl is safe, she is healthy, she is happy, she is being loved on.  She doesn’t know about us, even though we are head over heels in love with her!  But she is content, we are in pieces.  

So what I’m trying to say is,  even though we are hurting, she is not.  And for that I have peace.  Not sure if that makes sense, but it does to me!  She is OK!!! and they are taking good care of her until we can come for her!!!

Can hardly wait for that day!!!

Hanging On!
