We received an update today from Anna at AWAA on the status of Daniel's case. They have enough of the pieces of his profile to apply for a court date. This could take a couple of weeks to hear back from the courts what our date is. They still need one signature on a piece of the profile for us to be able to pass court, they are sure they will receive that signature in the next couple of weeks also. Meanwhile we sit here and wait, it has been almost 2 months since we first saw his face and we are so ready to hold him and love him. I know in God's time. There is also another little wrench in the process right now. Courts may be closing from Aug 22nd through Sept 30. If we do not receive a date before this time or pass court before this time, it will be early October before we go to court. So if you could all pray for a couple of things for us during this time:
1. Empathy from the person who schedules court that they will push us through and get us a court date quickly since the paperwork has been moving slowly through the system so far.
2. We receive and pass court before Aug 22nd.
3. Lastly for patience and understanding on our part. We have this picture of this little boy that we long to hold and love and become his parents. It is easy to get caught up in the why me, why our case, what are they doing, why is it taking so long, etc. We know in our hearts that this will all happen in God's time, sometimes that just seems to slip away in the heat of the moment.
Thank you all for your prayers, I know God has a plan for Daniel and it will be huge, on His time, not ours.
