We have a COURT DATE!
That means (barring any unforeseen circumstances) our Hope will officially be our daughter! Praise God!
We are praying for a pickup date in early December....(OK...truthfully I am praying for the end of November......will you come alongside us in this prayer?)
Details of pickup week in a future blog...but the typical time in country is ten days.
We continue to fundraise for airfare and travel expenses.
Stay tuned for an absolutely incredible AUCTION……It's one you WILL NOT want to miss!
The closer we get to redeeming our Hope the more time seems to slow to a crawl.
Maybe it's because we have felt her breath on our cheeks. ...Held her little body.
Maybe it's because on the final visit she offered me her trust and laid her head on my shoulder .
Maybe it's because she so obviously needed a daddy.....and trusted him early on.
Maybe it's because we are painfully aware that one cold, a few missed feedings, a ng tube placed incorrectly, an impatiently rough caretaker....could literally be fatal for our fragile girl.
It is all we have.
I've been told it is all we need. Still working on that.
To each and every one of you who has prayed, shared, donated...
Please know......we are humbly and eternally grateful.
FUNDRAISERS (yes....sorry but that's the reality of this adoption)
