Waiting for a court date...Week 10

Last week we got a call from the head social worker from our agency. She said it was the pre-travel call. She didn't know when we would be traveling, just that she had been given our name, so it must be soon. I was hopeful. Today we got a mass email update from our agency. It said that three families received court dates for the end of December.
I wrote to find out if we were in that group. Here's the response:

Danielle, I have already contacted the families with court dates. I'm sorry you were not in that group. I don't have any info at this time but we should be getting more court dates soon.

I'm so disappointed. I don't know why it's taking so long. I haven't been given any answers. I'm sad.

I am sorry as well. I don't understand the hold-up either? It seems that other agencies get referral, court date and then maybe another court date the next week if they don't pass and then go to ET 3 weeks later? I am concerned as well. It is reasurring that some of us did get court dates though. It will happen soon for all of us! Until then we have wine!

I am at a loss for words, Sweetie. I deleted my last two posts, because I don't know what to say that could be helpful. I love you and Judah.

Chin up chica, chin up...
What more is there to say?!?
We all want this so badly for you but it is in this waiting time that we realize that we are not in control (easy for me to say, right?)....

There are no words that any of us can say that will bring the court date here, now. But, what we can do is pray that it is very, very, very soon!

You have so many people who are close to you and love you both, and you also have your little bloggie supporters (like me) who think and pray for you guys every day!

Things are taking time for a reason - who knows why, but it's for a reason. Just hold tight and know that your little babe is waiting for you more than you are waiting for him.... But, don't be sad, he is being loved and hugged every day! He is not going without love - and you WILL be a family when the timing is right - and it will be soon. It will all melt away as soon as you get the court date and it passes - Chin up sweetie, you can do it, and you will! xoxoxoxox Lori
