One Step Closer

We heard today that the orphanage has the court order in hand. They will apply for Varsha's passport on Monday.
We are praying that the passport is issued in record time.
This has been the hardest of all our adoptions by far. We started in May 2009. We found Varsha in July of 2010. It has taken this long to get through this process. We survived 2 of her birthday's without her. But she is coming home soon. Maybe my emotions can calm down now. Maybe I can stop being a basket case now. Doubtful but its worth hoping for.
God has written Varsha's story. He has perfect timing to bring her home even if we don't understand this side of heaven.
Please keep praying. We have had trouble getting the last 2 passports in a decent amount of time. We have some personal family things that can't move forward without getting Varsha home. It is past time to move on. But we've waited knowing that God knows our concerns and is moving for our good (His will not ours).

Hoping for Prayers, Praying for Hope

It feels like my family is back where we started.
We are hoping for the prayers of our friends and family. We are praying daily, even hourly for God to grant us our desire and bring our (Varsha) Hope home.
We have been waiting and praying for a month now for the court to release our court order making us Varsha's family. The orphanage can't apply for her passport until they have the court order. Waiting is getting to me.
Prayers appreciated.
