Court Date Tomorrow

Well, tomorrow is the very very long awaited day. This month has gone by extremely slow for us, despite us trying to get out and do things to take our mind off our problems. But, it would not be normal to be able to go on with life with one of your children being missed sooooo intensely. We got an updated video of Annsleigh in the mail the other day from our agency. I wish I could say it made me feel good. It did not. She once again just looks so so sad and not stimulated, kind of with a flat affect. That really worries me. She is looking like "this is taking entirely toooo long. My mommy and daddy are sure taking a long time to come get me :( Breaks my heart. She needs to be home and thats all there is to it. She is very very chubby, though. So physically she is thriving, but emotionally she looks very blank in the face. Maybe she was just tired, but all her pics, she looks like this. I cant understand why my good Lord would have allowed it to take this long because it just isnt what my mortal eyes can see. I know He knows, but I would never want any of my children to suffer "because its part of His plan". I struggle with this. I have in the past too. Anyway, I will now thank my good Lord in advance for seeing to it that everything tomorrow has gone well and that we have reason to celebrate.

I just wanted to let you know that I am praying that all goes well in ET tomorrow. Annsleigh is just beautiful, and I am so glad that she is eating well and thriving physically. My prayer is that you will sleep well tonight while trusting that God is in ET making sure that Annsleigh is coming home soon!
