I have been following your blog for a month or two now, but have not left a comment. I've been praying for you and each court date you've gone through. We're using the same agency and are currently in a situation where we wonder if our case will pass as our daughter is being moved to a different orphanage (the second court date is tomorrow). Your faith and attitude has been so inspiring to me and I've struggled with doubt over the past week with hard news surrounding our daughter. I've read the verses others have posted on your blog again and again. Things did seem doubtful at time for you...but look at that beautiful boy! Nothiing is impossible for our God! I burst into tears when I saw your post! I'm so happy for you and my tears are also for the proof of what faith can bring! Oh, we adopted an infant two years ago...I know those yellow little boxes well! Congratulations! Thank you for your stories of encouragement!!!
