Clearing Skies

The dust is settling.

On Thursday we looked around at the mess and wondered when we would ever get to cross the ocean again.

On Friday we started seeing a few clear skies.

Clear skies are good.

We will take every one we can get.

The families who were frantically waiting for their approvals to be signed so they could have court next week breathed a huge sigh of relief on Friday when an official was approved to sign their papers.

We breathed a huge sigh of relief right along with them.

If their approvals were signed then once we receive approval, ours will be signed too.

That was a HUGE answer to prayer.

Sunlight is shining through the dust clouds.

Hope is beginning to fill our hearts as we see those rays bursting through.

With clear skies appearing we can now start anticipating the walk to her orphanage.

When the skies are clear and the sun is shining, the walk to her orphanage is quite beautiful.

We are waiting on approval from the committee.

We are praying HARD that they will review our dossier tomorrow.

If they do and it is approved then we just need an approval signature and a new court date.

So on this Sunday we are praying.

For more clearing skies.

For dossiers to be reviewed. For approvals to be signed. For a kind judge to give us a court date as soon as possible.

We want to see the flowers again.

But more importantly... we want to see our favorite little girl in the whole wide world!!



  1. Hurray! What good news - and what lovely photos.

    Especially those of Mary, of course.

    Praying that all goes well tomorrow and in the many tomorrows ahead.

Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
