Please no...

I just heard from Mary, and since this past weekend was Easter in Ethiopia alot of people took the weekend off work. I guess since everyone has been gone the courts are way backed up and they might end up not getting to our case tomorrow and have to give us another court date. I am so depressed right now and bawling my eyes out. My heart can't go through another bad court date, this will be the fourth time and I am completely broken. I know I have asked for this before but could you please pray that somehow our file gets through? Please. Please. I need my baby and I am done waiting.

I can't believe it, Tara! I'm so sorry you're still stuck in this limbo for court. I know NOTHING will make you feel any better or make waiting to get to Malak any easier, but you are in our thoughts and we will definitely be hoping tomorrow your case IS heard and it goes off without a hitch! My heart aches with you, I know how hard this part of the wait is, and I admire the strength and perseverence you've had as you force your way through it. The end will come... that little guy is going to be in his momma's arms soon!

Many hugs!

I am a lurker..but have followed your adoption for months. I pray for you..now

Dear Lord~in the name of Jesus and by the power of your Holy Spirit, I ask that you would grant to Tara and Eric great peace today. I pray that you, who sees all things and all children, would keep Malak in the palm of your hands and send angles to him as he waits for his momma and daddy. I ask that you would do the same for Tara and Eric that you did for the Israelites and the many who were healed by your touch. That you, in your great mercy, would do the miraculous. Please get Malak's paperwork through the court system quickly. I pray that you would reveal yourself as faithful to this young couple. And Lord give them the opportunity to share of your kindness to many others who aspire to adopt. It is for the glory of your name that I ask these things. Amen

hold on...God will act and Malak will be home soon

Tara, and Eric, we are praying tonight for Malak and a court miracle. It's so hard and I wish I could say something that could help. But, I DO know that God is closest to us in our weakest most broken times. And he is now with you. I will pray for your comfort and peace. For Malak and for court. You will be my/our rosary intention tonight.

You know, fwiw....my husband pointed out during one of my crying messes where i was just falling apart...that just like our little boy doesn't know we are HERE, just waiting to be allowed to get him. Our Blessed Mother is right HERE waiting to be able to comfort us too. It's that real. Well, that brought me a great deal of comfort. She "gets" it and can pray for us to her son too.....I'll hit her up for prayers for you all tonight.

hang in there.

Big, deep breath. Hold it.

Is this child worth all this trouble? I thought so. Did you think the Lord would give him to just anyone?

Prov 3:5-6
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
NKJV

1 Peter 2:18-20
18 Servants (that would be you), be submissive to your masters (that would be the authorities) with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable. 19 For this finds favor, if for the sake of conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly. 20 For what credit is there if, when you sin and are harshly treated, you endure it with patience? But if when you do what is right and suffer for it you patiently endure it, this finds favor with God.
NASU

Phil 4:6-7
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
NASU

Exhale.

Repeat as necessary.

Father, please clear the courts load tomorrow and allow little Malak's file to go through. Please be the Comforter for Eric and Tara as they lean not on their own understanding but on Yours. Hold them tight as their arms ache to hold their little child. Give them hope and reassurance. In Jesus' Holy and precious name, Amen.

Gina said...

Oh, Tara, I am SO sorry to hear that. I'm going to be up late tonight praying that your file will get through tomorrow and that you'll be holding your sweet, beautiful baby in no time! I am so sorry your hope has taken such a bruising lately. But it WILL all be worth it when you're holding Malak in your arms. There are lots of people loving you and praying for you right now, God's going to make it work out right.

Erica said...

Oh my Tara Tara. My heart is breaking for you. I sent you an email today without checking your blog. :( I'm so so sorry. Praying praying, BEGGING God to let tomorrow be your day! Surely He knows this mama needs her baby. Gods in charge, His timing perfect even when it seems so unfair.

emily said...

I have been praying for you and will continue to pray. I can't imagine how your heart must ache for sweet Malak. Praying that the courts find favor on your case and it makes it through.
