Unsuccessful Court Date

Well today January 21, 2009 was Simon's court date and we did not pass. One piece of information was missing from his adoption paperwork. I'm told it used to be very unusual not to pass through court the first go around. Now it is very unusual to pass court the first time. The Ethiopian government is becoming pretty strict about passing adoptions without all of the proper paper work.
So today I have passed through many phases, I have cried, I have been mad and now I know there is nothing I can do about it, but wait until March 5 for our next court date.
This is a true test of patience.

I am so sorry you did not pass. Even if it was expected there was still hope. I know I will be hoping no matter how much I know better. I will be praying for you to pass on March 5h.

Wendy - I know how disappointed you are!

Remember God has the perfect day for your son to come home!

I kept telling myself this too shall pass and I look back now thinking I can't remember what life was like before Gabriel came home and he has only been here five days!!!!!!!!!! ONLY GOD!

Hugs and know that I"m here to help in any way I can to pass time together!
Love,
Jill
