Court Date Postponed...

... until January 9th.

Obviously disappointing.


  1. I am so sorry. I know how disappointing that is!! At least the 9th isn't too much longer. We will be praying this date holds out!!! I don't know about you, but I found Christmas a little sad anyway...felt like part of our family was missing...which it was. We will both be holding our little ones soon, Rachel. Hang in there. Blessings! Kris

  2. Sorry, guys! This happened to us, too (passed the second attempt). We'll be praying for you on the 9th...

  3. Shoot!! I am so sorry. Hang in there. Hopefully the next two weeks will pass very quickly and you will hear good news very soon. Thinking of you...Sarah = )

  4. My thoughts are with you, just wish I could make time fly for you!

  5. It will happen and we will keep praying for the 9th now! It is so worth all the waiting and delays. Feel free to fly over to Illinois and play with the twins. No seriously, HELP!!!!! So glad u guys switched over to ET. Your gorgeous Evangeline will be home soon

  6. Rachel....I think of Tami's adoption story- all the setbacks she had, only to find out (in her situation) why. I think of it so often to remind myself that while I may never get the opportunity to see WHY, that God knows the whys and all we can do it trust Him in it all.

    Easier said than done... I KNOW! I am so sorry to hear about the delay, but I am praying that there will be no more delays and that your wait will end soon!!!

    This is the verse I have siting right here next to my computer. Maybe it will speak to you too (thought I am sure you've heard it before):

    "But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, SURELY the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it surely will take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

  7. Oh, Rachel. I am so sorry. This process is so gut-wrenching. We'll be praying for 1/9, and asking for God's mercies with the rest of the process.

    Love the verse that Jenna shared. Hugs to you.

  8. SO sorry!! Praying for the next couple weeks to fly're getting so close to having her home!

    Once (during our first adoption)
    Stacy and I decided that God throws little monkey wrenches in here and there to teach us to be flexible, take things as they come. It will come in handy on the adoption trip. ;)
    She will be home soon, My Friend.

  10. Bummer!! :( Well, it'll come before you know it...then do you still have to wait awhile?
    When she's in your arms, you'll forget all this torture of waiting! :)

  11. OH NO!

    Rach, I'm so sorry to hear of this but relieved a new date has been sent.....better than limbo I suppose.

    I will be following along closely & sending renewed prayers.

    Your Christmas photos were lovely!


  12. Rachel,
    I can relate to your pain. This happened to us several times and it is so painful. Hang in there!
    My thoughts are with you! Have a blessed New Year!
