Yay. More Delays.

More. Delays.

If I wasn't about to blow a gasket, it would almost be funny.

When our lawyer went to book the flight for the birth-mom's, the flights were full and they couldn't make it to the capital city in time for the interview.  So....  our new birth-mom-interview date is March 5th.

A new, 2 week delay.  A friend in Brazil once told me that God knows the desire of my heart, and He knows what's best.  That's kinda been my mantra this morning, what I keep reminding myself of.  There is positively nothing we can do to change the situation.  God knows how much we want our children home, and how much they need a home.  He has already given them to us, for their benefit and His glory.  He also knows the best way to get them home and the perfect timing to do so.  And, while we continue to wait, I will trust that.

Psalm 68  (Look at the character of God!)


3 But may the righteous be glad

and rejoice before God;

may they be happy and joyful.

4 Sing to God, sing in praise of his name,

extol him who rides on the clouds;

rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.

5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,

is God in his holy dwelling.

6 God sets the lonely in families,

he leads out the prisoners with singing;

but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.


9 You gave abundant showers, O God;

you refreshed your weary inheritance.

10 Your people settled in it,

and from your bounty, God, you provided for the poor.


19 Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,

who daily bears our burdens.

20 Our God is a God who saves;

from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death.


28 Summon your power, Godj ;

show us your strength, our God, as you have done before.

32 Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth,

sing praise to the Lord,

33 to him who rides across the highest heavens, the ancient heavens,

who thunders with mighty voice.

34 Proclaim the power of God,

whose majesty is over Israel,

whose power is in the heavens.

35 You, God, are awesome in your sanctuary;

the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people.

Praise be to God!

****UPDATE 2/19****
Our lawyer was able to arrange for Anya's birth-mom to be interviewed last night after all.  While we still wait for Jayce's birth-mom to be interviewed on March 5th, this is a big step in the right direction.  It is one less thing that can possibly be delayed later, and I'm grateful for the persistence of our lawyer in this.  Praise God!


  1. Everything you just posted Anna just shows that you are in the exact place the LORD wants you in....your bringing your babies home soon! We are praying for you!!!

  2. Praying that the wait will seem like a blink when you look back on it in a few years. Labor sucks and I always remind myself, "It won't be nearly so bad when I remember it later." Hugs! Keep finding positive things to focus on and do... And don't be afraid to ask God for specific things when you pray!
