Another bump in the road

We are scheduled to leave for Taiwan this coming Monday morning. We have booked our flights and everything. I just received the email from the orphanage saying the following:

"Rylyn's birthmother has not signed the paper and sent it back to the court. Now she refuses to answer our telephone calls. Withouth this second paper your adoption cannot be finished. We received the first paper giving the ok, then it is sent to the birthmom and she has to sign a paper, she does this when the postman delivers it and he sends it back through the post office to the court system. When that paper is received at the court then the judge can make the final decree. This is a time when all of your praying friends should be praying. What the issue is we do not know but when she will not answer our phone calls our hands are tied. God's hands are not tied. Please pray and ask everyone else to pray. We need that paper returned so the judge can make the final decree. Hope this is understadable. Ted does more of the court stuff. Just want you know what is happening so you can pray more intelligently. Without the final decree the case cannot be finished, cannot do the passport or physical or the Ait appointment. God is our refuge and strength, a very pressent help in time of trouble. Ps. 46:1"
Please pray for us!!

  1. We are fervently praying for you and the entire situation. I know that nothing is impossible for God.

  2. Praying for you two!! Btw, Rylyn is getting cuter and cuter :)

  3. Praying all is resolved SOON!

  4. We went through a similar situation with our daughter's birthmom. I'm praying that everything will fall into place and Rylyn will be in your loving arms. Keep the faith and you will be on your way to Taiwan.

  5. Dear friend,

    I don't know you well, but I know the sickening feeling of being delayed to bring home your angel. I also know the glory on the other side when despite a grim situation, God does something wonderful. We are praying for a miracle designed just for you. We may not understand the "whys" of how our children come to us (or are delayed in coming), but thankfully, we don't have to for Glory to happen. You are so close, don't give up hope now. (easier said than done, I know)
