One year ago...
While you were sleeping, we hit a roadblock.
Evidently the girl we were supposed to meet had surgery yesterday to correct her strabismus and now the orphanage director won’t let us come and visit her for a week.
And even if she did, Dr. Yuri doesn't think he could make have a good observation of her.
Needless to say this has put a big wrench in things.
It looked like we were going to have to make a decision as to whether to proceed with her adoption or go back to the SDA for another referral.
We put the decision in God's hands.
A few minutes later our facilitator called. He talked with the SDA and they want to see us at 4:30 p.m. to talk to the psychologist about our options.
Please pray for us.
We don’t know if they will consider our appointment yesterday as our first appointment and make us wait to come back for a second…
Or if they will have compassion and let us look at new files today.
And pray for the little girl that we were supposed to meet. She is miserable and in pain. Her eyes have to be covered for a week (hence, why they won’t let us come see her – we can’t make eye contact and bond.)
And her chance for adoption may have come and gone.
But at the same time we know that He is in control.
I’ll let you know how the new appointment goes.
