No Words...

I had received an e-mail from our agency earlier this week letting me know that they had a verbal commitment from CCCWA that they would receive our LOA this week (by fax).

I was certain I would be getting THE call today. I was certain we would be celebrating today.

My hopes were just shut down. I just got off the phone with our agency and there is not fax. In fact, there in China contact was supposed to be e-mailed as well and she received nothing.

I am so upset and disappointed. Our agency is so apologetic. It's not their fault. I know they are doing everything possible to get us to our daughter.

I feel like we have been through h*ll and back with this adoption. I keep telling myself over and over it will come, it will come in His time. But I have to be honest, it's not always easy. It is comforting knowing there are many of you praying right along with us.

Keep praying...

I am so sorry to hear that you are having so many problems. Satan is working overtime so he must know your family is getting ready for something marvelous that he is trying to keep you from . I know how hard it is to wait especially when time frames mean nothing to some people and everything to you. Hang in there. So many people are praying for you.

I am soooo sorry you are still waiting... I have followed your blog since before you brought your boys home. You inspired us to adopt our daughter who was aging out last year. Anyway, we are waiting for Art. 5 now for our other daughter and hope to travel in late Nov. I KNOW how hard it is to be patient. We have hit soooo many snags with this adoption and it is our 6th one!!! Virtually everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. It took our dossier 2 months to get logged in and then they needed extra paperwork and our LOA ended up taking alkmost 100 days... AWEFUL... We waited 5 months from DTC to LOA. I FEEL your dissapointment and I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you and praying for your LOA. Keep pressing on..... it is gonna happen!

Oh Mandi~ I'm SO sorry. This adoption really has been a test, hasn't it!?! Satan IS working overtime and it's time to take authority over him and remind the enemy he is UNDER your feet, in JESUS' name!!

I can only imagine the frustration and emotions you are feeling right now. Know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending love and hugs your way!
