We did not pass court again today. Our son's birth mom has disappeared yet again. We have a police letter stating that she can't be found (that's what we started out with at the first court date). The judge will accept that instead of her appearance in court. We did have the MOWA letter that we needed today. Unfortunately, it will have to be amended before the next court date since Birth Mom has disappeared and won't be coming to court.
Our next court date is scheduled for April 15th (just 9 days!). If MOWA can amend our letter before then, I think we will be good to go. Nothing is for sure, though, until it actually happens.
I'm sad, but at peace. I've been up and down so many times in the last few months. After the last court date I thought I couldn't bear it anymore. It was the lowest point that I have hit so far in this process. But it was at that point that I really let go and gave this over to God. I am more confident now than ever that he has a plan, and he is in control. The timetable is not just about me/us. It is about Little Brother and about Birth Mom. God works all things for good for those who love him. All things. I have no clue what all of this crazy delay is accomplishing, but there is a reason. So for now, I am clinging to that.
