The Hard Side of International Adoption

I'm addicted to adoption blogs. I think most of you already know that, but in case you wondered, there it is. I am particularly fond of international adoption blogs. The community of adoptive mommy bloggers is an incredibly supportive one. I've mentioned before that in our own journey to our Li'l Empress, these fellow IA mommy bloggers prayed for me during some of the hardest parts of the long and winding road to our girl.

Today, one of my favorite IA bloggers really needs our prayers. They've been in queue for quite a long time for a referral and then for a court date to adopt a sibling group from Ethiopia. This week, they were given devastating news.

Please, pray for them during this horrible moment . Pray for their children. Pray for the hearts of men to be changed. Please, pray.

What a roller coaster for you - the new member of your family (a good good day - although any day as a 'gang member' I think is a pretty good one!), then the blog posting on the 'hard side' - oh how we all share that pain and the fear until you hold that child in your arms!

Blessings - and when your life settles - and update on the newest 'gangster'?

hugs - aus and co.

You and I were there... weren't way. So so hard at the time. God always has a plan though. I can not imagine life without our little Emme!

That is such devastating news. I am hoping things can change for them. I am sending good wishes their way.
