Not Good News - Again.

So we just got word that we did not pass through court - again. Our birthmother was there and the relinquishment has taken place. All of our paperwork was there and approved. There was only one catch. The judge ruled that a new decision must be issued from MOWA (the agency that is closed this week for moving!) for every court date, even though we already had prior MOWA approval from our last court date! Our new court date is not until the end of March which means we won't be getting the girls until April, unless a miracle happens. Our Gladney rep thinks that because our case is basically done (it just needs ANOTHER MOWA rubber stamp) that they may be able to get our case heard sooner - perhaps next week when MOWA opens up again.

We need you to help us harness all of the power of heaven on this one. Would you pray for a miracle that our case gets heard next week? Would you ask everyone you know to do the same and stand in gap with us for the lives of these little girls? We will not be defeated by the enemy.

We are believing God that He will not delay and "bring [our] daughters from the ends of the earth" (Isaiah 43:6) home to us as He has promised.

"Get up! Cry out at night, every hour on the hour. Pour your heart out like water in the presence of the LORD. Lift up your hands to him [in prayer] for the life of your little children." Lamentations 2:19

OH no! This is SO frustrating, I know, I am so sorry! It would make me nuts to know that we HAD the stamp and now they want another for redundancy sake....it is very hard. I will pray, maybe they will hear your case sooner, I mean it sounds like a formality....so maybe?
St. Jude, pray for us.

Oh, I am so sorry! I was really hoping you would get good news today. This is so frustrating and disappointing, I know. I am praying that they will hear your case soon!

Definitely praying for you guys. Your poor hearts must be so weary. I pray that the Lord breaks through the barriers that are keeping the girls from you and that he supplies you and Davis with an extra does of strength and perseverance for the last leg of this journey!

I look forward to the day when you can look back on this time and fully understand God's plan. He sure can be mysterious, eh?

Oh Lord God You know the desires of our hearts and you have plans to prosper us and not harm us, I pray Jesus that you would honor the desires of Sarah & Davis hearts and allow the court to approve everything so they can bring those beautiful girls home.Please help the mowa to get their end of things taken care of and help the judge to make an exception for them and clear the way . Thank you Lord for what you are already doing and please keep the girls in your care and give Sarah and Davis a peace that only comes from you. In Jesus name -AMEN!

I am so very sorry. This brings back a flood of emotions. It's so hard and there is nothing I can say that will make it any better.

I'm seriously committed to praying for you guys. We will pray all week long, but I'm also setting aside every Tuesday to pray specifically for your family all day long. We are praying for a miracle!
