That's the answer we got today. Apparently MOWA was closed yesterday and didn't have our letter of recommendation ready. (The Ministry of Women's and Children's Affairs reviews our file and has to prepare a letter of recommendation for the court.) I don't know yet if his birth mom was able to make it. I think that usually if a family member makes a long trip to appear in court, they will go ahead and take their testimony so that they don't have to return again for another court date. Hopefully we will get more details about what happened later.
Our next court date is 3/1. Seventeen long days from now.
I am thankful to know that our son is in a safe place with plenty of food to eat and clean clothes to wear. I am thankful that our God is Father to the fatherless, and he is rocking my baby boy in his arms right now. I am thankful for the God of all comfort who comforts us in our troubles so that we can later comfort others. I am thankful that now I will be able to better relate to adoptive families who encounter problems and have to wait. I am thankful for his peace that passes understanding. I am thankful that God works all things for the good of those who love him. I am thankful that God is GOOD and he is LOVE. I trust him.
I have a lot to be thankful for. But, you know, my heart still hurts. Please pray for the 1st.
