Nine months

On Friday, February 7th we first saw her face.

Today, Friday, November 7th marks 9 months since that crazy happy day.

 It’s been a loooooong nine months. It's been a looooonnnnggg "pregnancy" - full of anticipation. 

Seriously, I think it will take everything in me not to run to her. I don't want to freak her out or anything you know.  ;-)

But we are so ready to hug her neck and never let go. <3 


We DID get good news today! We found out that MOWA is:

*drum-roll please*

working through the weekend to catch up on cases!!

This is TOTALLY unheard of. Our coordinator Miss J said she practically yelled “What! That’s amazing!” when she found out.

So Mr. D (who, along with Mr. F has been going to MOWA every. single. day. to check in on all our cases – bless him) said that we should get our recommendation by the end of next week at the latest! We’re still hopeful and are praying that MOWA can knock out a lot of cases this weekend and will make it to our file sooner rather than later.

I LOVE our agency. Miss J called me with the great news this morning and told us they are all praying for us. All of Bethany’s cases were given negative recommendation letters, but we've experienced significant delays in comparison to everyone else. So Mr. F and Mr. D are fighting hard on our behalf to get us that letter.

I asked her to please convey our thanks to them for working so hard for us. When you have to rely on others to take care of things for you, it’s hard if they aren't as “gung-ho” as you are. But these two, they've been our champions. And I thank God for them.

I’m sure you’re wondering about timelines now. Well, since no one has made it past MOWA, no court dates have been issued. But they’re generally 2-3 weeks out. If we get our recommendation next week, we should be issued our court date within a day or two of getting our letter.

Right now, it looks like we could have a court date for the end of November or the first week of December.

We’re overjoyed right now. And as long as I’m with her for Christmas and KC is with the boys, my heart will be happy.
