Hiccups

Hiccups are an inexplicable part of life. They come. We deal with them. And we move on. Personally, my favorite cure is the scare tactic. My dad is the best surpriser for giving me a good dose of gasp and startle.

We have run into a bit of a hiccup with the adoption. I have taken you along for the journey thus far; from the joyous to the tedious you’ve been here reading along. So why would I leave you out of this part? Quite frankly some encouragement and good old fashioned prayer would be ever so helpful at this point.

Bottom line: we need this next step, the second court appearance at which we get to take Kaitlynn home, to happen before the middle of next week. If it doesn’t happen before then they have said they will postpone it until the end of the annual court winter vacation, which means the end of June.

We are seeking the favor of the stand-in judge since the department of adoptions is still without it’s own judge. The person who decides who goes before the judge and when is named Giovana. The social worker, Rosita, may speak with Giovana about our case. Neither our lawyer nor us may speak to her personally.

A glimmer of hope rests in the fact that today Kaitlynn had a fever. Getting our little girl to us so that she doesn’t get the other kids more sick and so that she can be cared for more directly might be enough of a reason for them to consider us. I hate with all my heart to see my daughter sick… I hate even more that this might be what moves things along…

I’d like to say that I am full of faith that this is going to happen when we want it to happen and that is the end of it. Truth be told, though, I am done frustrating myself by trying to tell God what to do and when to do it. He knows what I would like. I have no doubt that He has heard us as we have asked Him to move on our behalf. That does not change the feelings of weariness. Pray as you see fit, if you don’t mind. Thanks.

I will leave you with a sweet picture of Kaitlynn doing one of the things she likes to do best as I go find some way to keep it together.
