Have you heard the saying 'No news is good news' ? How about 'Some news is not as bad as it could be'? Okay, I made that one up. But, that's how I'm feeling about the latest news. It's not great, not horrible, could be good.
The court day on Thursday went good, everything was in order, but the judge wants one more official, stamped paper filled out and returned to them before they finish the adoption. The case is still open (which is good) and we don't have to re-schedule. The orphanage director just has to spend an entire day chasing forms and copies and official stamps, then return to court with the form and we'll be finished. So...........maybe Tuesday??
We are thankful that this paper was requested while we are still here in the US and not when we were in Ghana waiting for Visas. They really are just trying to do everything legally required and make sure everything is covered.
We are now planning on leaving on the 25th, but are open to changes as they come.
In the end we will hug our kids and laugh about all the hoops we had to jump through. We are not laughing too much right now about them though. Just anxiously awaiting our travel and still trusting our Lord for His timing not ours.
