Nothing

No updates
No changes
No Bella
Nothing

So many of you continue to ask about updates on our approval to go and get Bella. And we don't have any. In Sept, CARA in India asked for another 3 months to finish backlogged paper work for 550 families and they told us they would have them all completed by Dec. 31st. We were hopeful we'd know something by Thanksgiving and as that time quickly disappeared I have been clinging on to a Christmas surprise. But as of today, we've been told that there has been no updates from CARA to our orphanage on our paperwork.

We know that God won't be one second late on His plan for our daughter to come home. However, honestly, that just flat out doesn't erase the hurt and the ache I feel in my heart over my little girl. As if the first two years waiting on a referral weren't hard enough....it's almost been a whole year since we were matched with our precious girl.... and it's almost unbearable that we've still not gotten approval so that we can bring her home.

So, until then, we continue to eagerly and expectantly WAIT.... and PRAY.... and HOPE daily that some good news will come soon.

Oh, I am just so sorry to hear that you haven't gotten any news yet. We, too, are just waiting, waiting, waiting. Our agency rep. is going to be in our daughter's state, on January 11th, so we're hoping for good news then. I am confident that God wants a breakthrough in Indian adoptions. There are so many little treasures just waiting for a family to love them. I'll be praying that you hear something before the end of the year!

Blessings,
Sarah

I am reading a great book about prayer, right now. It's called, "Wrestling Prayer." It has given me a renewed vigor to pray for ALL of our children. :) Because I was definitely feeling discouraged for a while.

I am praying for you. And I am so sorry that this is taking so long.

I'm sorry you have not had news. And I know how painful it is. I am waiting too. But you will have news soon, and your little girl will be home soon too. I just know it. :) Good bless.

Oh,I don't even know what to say,so I won't. This kinda thing...nothing anyone can say that you already don't know.
But I am sure after your girl is in your arms...all this pain will erase. Hoping for good news for you at the NEW YEAR month!! Gidget
