Story Book Dreaming and Praying…

24 Oct

In the adoption world, you learn that most everything is unpredictable.  We did not receive our Petition to Court again today, but we are not disappointed or disheartened.  Our family coordinator is out next week but she has given us information in case it arrives while she is gone, and we are actually feeling hopeful that the Petition is going to arrive next week.  When it does we are prepared! 🙂

Please join us in praying that the Petition will arrive next week and that we will be able to quickly get it translated and submitted to court with the rest of our court documents.  Once it is submitted to the judge, then he/she will figure out when our court hearing will be.

I can’t remember if I shared here or not but our little board story book has safely made it to the hands of our facilitator in our region.  She/he hopefully has given it to Colin by now.  The story is one we wrote about Colin meeting us.  Here is what the last page of the book says(the photo which I can’t show you is of me holding baby and him waving at Alan):

Bye, bye! Papa and Mama will see (Colin’s diminutive name in Russian is here) soon!


We are praying and trusting that last page of Colin’s story book will come true soon! 


Thanks for stopping by,

    Hi! That is exciting that your friends who traveled a little before you have their court date. It definitely sounds like it won’t be long now till you finally hear your news! I pray the news comes very soon. I am sure they gave the board book to Colin – That is such a great idea! All the Best!

    I’m getting excited for you, realizing that you will be there before we know it, holding Colin! I’m praying your petition comes this week.
