Court Date on Tuesday

Dear Ones:

I wanted to let you know that our court date for Baby Girl is this Tuesday Aug. 3rd.
The information we know at this point is the case worker and casa worker both are requesting that there will be termination of parental rights and that the case will move to adoption. We also know our judge in the case is very conservative and the slowest of all the judges to move to permanency placement. We have been told to be prepared for him to give birth parents another 3 months. We also know if the case moves to adoption the parents can appeal. We are also hoping no family members will crawl out of the woodwork especially after no involvement for this entire year the girls have been with us.

We desperately need your prayers. Honestly my anxiety levels are through the roof. Not knowing what the Lord is going to require of our family and fearing what that might be is very difficult.

I feel like the story of two mothers in 1 Kings 3:16-27. I feel like this baby is caught between two mothers and we are before the king and I hope the king will say "Give the baby to the first woman, because she is the REAL mother." I feel like I am her real mother. No matter what happens, I am her real mother.

I have decided to spend Monday fasting and praying. I will not be on the computer until after we return from court. Would any of you be willing to give up something to spend time in prayer for our family on Monday?

Please pray for God's will. First and foremost for these girls to be safe and for them to know Him always if they are with us or not. Please pray if things do not go as we are hoping that we will trust when we do not understand. That we will not be resentful in our disappointment. That we will know God is for us and not against us. Honestly, we are praying for these girls to be forever family members. That is our hearts desire and hope.

My next post will be how everything goes on Tuesday. Thank you once again for standing with us.

Living Loved,


  1. My family and I will be praying for your family.

    huggs and blessings to you-

  2. I just happened upon your blog this morning as we wait for our court date for an International adoption next week. I wanted to tell you I have been where you are at. We have lived it for the past 4 years. My heart has hurt like never before though this process. Sometimes things worked as you hope and sometimes they do not. It is that Plan B that you spoke about that is so hard to be O.K with. I will be praying for you on Tuesday. God has a plan. He also loves that little baby girl even more than you do and will not leave her. Gods plan is promised to be perfect, but not painless. We will be praying for his will and the desires of your heart!

  3. Monday is over but I will be praying w/o ceasing for the entire situation today (Tuesday)

    Your hearts are thick with worry and anxiety.

    I know God calls us to put our struggles upon Him, but, sometimes we feel to weak to even do that and bear them ourselves so that WE can have the control of the emotions, the hurt, the turmoil.

    Don't let this phenom get to are in a situation where ONLY Divine Intervention can carry you are obviously so willing and open...I pray that God gently takes your burden without you prying it back from Him

    *I am SO preaching to myself right now too*

    I wll NEVER deny that God has a SPECIAL purpose and protection for widows and orphans.

    He uses them both in POWERFUL ways of testimony and provision...

    I am going to pray that you walk away with a testimony tomorrow of protection for your girls...



"As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord."

Joshua 24:15
