She's Five Months Old

Our precious girl is five months old! We are closer and closer to her everyday! As of today, we heard of a family that successfully passed court. That means that the courts are, in deed, open! Our petition for a court date was turned in prior to the court closing in August and we anticipate an email notifying us of our court date any day. We also anticipate an October court date, and November travel.
I'm sure you have learned by now, that nothing is a sure thing in adoption. I have been saying that we should have a call any day for over a year. I know that it is like crying wolf, I understand that. Hope is all we have. Hope that we will have a court date any day. Hope that we pass court sometime in October and hope that we have our little girl in our arms in November. Hope. We can't give anyone a for sure date. We can only hope and pray it is soon. There have been days when my hope has seemed to be gone, but it was there. It was just hard to see over my frustration and bitterness. My hope is my God and my Marley. I know He will bring her to us and I am learning more than ever to trust in Him and His plan!

I have a song that I am going to try and email to you. I listened to it non-stop when we were waiting court/travel. You are exactly right. All you can do is have faith now and believe that you will be holding Marley soon. And, lean on your friends! I am just a few states away!!

I told Missy's little girl, that I'm praying hard to not have to say another Happy X-months Birthday while she is in Ethiopia ... so I'm hoping the same for you Marley ... Happy 5 Months Birthday babygirl and may you be home for the next month's B-Day wish.

Elisa I'm praying for you, as I do for Tina, and Missy that you all get your court date SOON!!!!
