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.

We've Had the Wind Taken Out of Our Sails

I received a call from our agency today. Not the approval call I had hoped for. We were told that the PGN summoned our foster mother to appear before them with Nola. She, of course, appeared as they asked and they took Nola away. We know nothing more than that. Our attorney doesn't know where they took Nola or exactly why. We do know the PGN said they were placing her in an orphanage and that's it. There was also talk of it being a judicial case now. Our agency will find out all they can for us but not until next week since this is Friday. I can only imagine how afraid Nola must be.

What started out as such a beautiful day sure ended up in the toilet.

Please continue to pray for our little sweetheart!

Here's some raspberries from Nola ;)

Maybe she should have given those PGN officials some!

I will pray for your family and Nola. I can't even imagine how difficult this has been for you and your family. I can't wait to see the day your blog says "We have pink" and "We are home".

Pam,
I found your blog after Brittney posted on Kinsey's blog about your story. I am so sorry to hear what your family, and especially Nola, are going through. Please know that we are adding you to our prayer list and will be praying for Nola to be returned to her foster mom and then to come home to you very soon.

Oh Pam, He is able and can perform super abundantly beyond our wildest dreams and imagination to bring His will to come to pass. This has happened to families in our agency as well. They did find the children. I am always praying for you and checking your blog daily. Big Hugs, Susie

Pam, I am at a loss for words. I don't understand why this is happening and why Nola can't simply stay with her foster family until her adoption is completed. That is just beyond cruel, and my heart is so heavy for you and Nola. I will pray for your family and especially for Nola. Life can be so cruel...

Pam and family,

I don't even know what words would bring comfort at this time. What a horrible thing to happen to you and your family. Prayers are absolutely being said for Nola and your family as well as your attorney that he be able to resolve the situation quickly. Hang in there!

Hugs from us to you,

Oh Pam. No. This post made me instantly burst into tears. I can't believe this. I am speechless. Please know that we are all praying.

If you don't hear something soon...GO DOWN there GO TO PGN yourself and find out what you need to do to get her back...Something similar happend to a friend who was fostering herself...instead of taking the baby away from her they decided in her favor and compleated her adoption...all becasuse she went to Pgn herself to get it worked out. HUGS You can email me if you want to know her whole story

JennieAndPaul said...

Pam, You and your family our in our prayers. I can't believe that PGN is doing this and can only say that Nola WILL come home and you WILL have her in your arms forever. I won't stop praying for you (and for Nola) until she is home! Hugs to you!

Jennie, who is crying after seeing your blog and Brittney's blog
