Friday night brought a needle to my hope-filled balloon however. I got an email confirming that the news I had heard about a delay in Ugandan adoptions was true. They are no longer granting Visa's until the wording in the legal paperwork is clarified and/or changed. I also learned that there are families that have been waiting since summer 2009 to receive their court dates that have not heard anything. What we thought would be within a few months, is now expected to be much much longer. I was devastated. I was sure we would be going to Africa soon and now the answer to the question of "when" has backed itself up even further from my reality. It was a bitter moment for me. Every day I look at her, talk to her, miss her and want her to know that mommy & daddy are coming as soon as they can to bring her home.
I don't blame the Ugandan government, they are protective of their children and I appreciate that. I do not question God's timing or sovereignty in this situation, I have full faith that He is in control. I do however mourn the moments that we are missing with her everyday. I do cry that my baby girl doesn't even know how loved she is yet, by her family and all the people that are supporting us in helping to bring her home. I do pray that a miraculous thing would happen that defies all explanation and that God would continue to get glory from this page in His story.
Will you join us in this prayer!?
