The greatest experience, the one which shakes a soul with hopes and fears, the results of which are never ending, and incidentally, the one which pays the biggest dividends, is to be found in the adoption of children.

Thank You All So Much!!!!

First of all, I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who has posted, e-mailed and called to let us know you are praying for us and keeping us close to your hearts. These last few days have been nearly unbearable but your kindness has been very uplifting.

We have learned where Nola has been placed. She is in Casa El Jardin orphanage in Guatemala City. That, unfortunately, is all we know. We were first told that our lawyer would not be able to get her released from the orphanage and placed back with her foster family, but today we were told that it may be a judges call. There are just so many things up in the air. Our agency is trying to find out all they can and they are supposed to be in contact with our lawyers office daily. I have accepted the fact that information is going to come to us slowly.

I'll post updates as we receive them.

Okay, deep least you know where she is right now. Oh Pam. I wish I knew what to say. But, the insanity of all of this is beyond comprehension, thus beyond adequate words. You are such a pillar of strength, but I am sure you feel like you are just barely hanging on right now. I love the quote at the top of your blog and that you removed that awful ticker.

Sigh...having faith and trust is so hard. I know God has a greater plan, but I am sure you despareately want to know what it is right now. This is just too much for you to carry alone. I hope that, somehow, God, friends, and family can help to carry this burden for you as the wait continues. I know all of us out here in blogger land are holding up hope and love for your family.

I agree with Steph, deep breaths is all I can do to keep from breaking down for you. Still praying.

I am glad to hear you are still hanging in there (even if it doesn't feel like it). I think about you nearly everyday - hoping for the best. You are in my heart.
