Bad News About Court....AGAIN!

It is very difficult to put into words (that are not obscene) how I feel right now. Feels like Im on the sinking titanic waving goodbye to loved ones who are going to "make it". Because of one orpnanage director (from Holy Savior....look out if thats where your child is from ) that just doesnt seem to get it, Annsleigh sits and waits. SOME MORE! This guy shows up to court AGAIN without signatures on important paperwork. Signatures that require his leg work to get done. He needs to be fired! Our agency is frustrated with this guy also, and is considering not using this orphanage anymore because of him. An in country agency staff person is literally going to take him by the hand and get these signatures done, but we dont know when. The judge did not even set another court date, just told him to GET IT DONE! and bring it to her. Sounds like she will approve it as soon as she gets it, but now we have NO DATE to plan on. I did hear from the agency today that if it does get done this week, we will still be able to get Annsleigh by the end of July. She sounded real positive in that manner. But, if not....we are looking at August. I give all the families all the respect in the world that go thru this process, and turn around after their baby is home and start it all over again for another child. I know I could not live thru something like this again. I am getting too old for all this. And remember, none of us can be on any antidepressants or nerve pills during this process, or we are deemed bad people. Guess I 'll just have to go eat a gallon of ice cream chased by a pound of raw cookie dough with a side of fries.

oh my lord, this is getting ridiculous. Hopefully the judge will just review the docs and make everything official without having to wait for another actual court date. I am praying for you guys and that Annsleigh WILL be home in July.

This is just awful. I never understand how in the hell people can show up to court without papers signed. They KNOW that these children wait if the paperwork isn't perfect. It's so sad. I'm so, so sorry. Eat some ice cream. Isn't it amusing how when we go through something so emotional we can't take medication to help?!

You WILL survive this AND will be a better parent in the end. After close to 3 years of riding this adoption roller coaster, I urge you not to let this get you down. Always remember that your child will not stay in Ethiopia one minute longer than God has ordained. Hang in there!

So sorry, friend. I am so sorry. I have no good words. Just know I am praying. Praying for resolution THIS WEEK. Hugs.

Fran, I am so so sorry you are going through this. Wish we lived closer and I'd be at your door with ice cream and lots more ;)

Yes. The sun will shine again. But, it's not shining today or yesterday and THAT SUCKS for you! It is not a feeling you want to hide because it is so strong. I am sorry. So sorry. I wish this "guy" had is act together. I wish your agency would get behind YOU in this and figure out how to get their "co-worker" to do his job. I wish you knew when Annsleigh was coming home. This is not the best part of the process and for you it's been worse than most. a whole list of profanities that are not appropriate followed by a hug! So sorry!
