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 WAITED ALL THIS TIME FOR............

NOTHING!!!!!
Basically, that's what was decided at our hearing yesterday. The judge has a "feeling", not proof, that our birth mother is a minor. She wants PGN to do another investigation. PGN has already done a complete investigation and found no abnormalities in the paperwork and no information on where the birth mother may be. They don't want to do another investigation. Our lawyer argued there was nothing to be gained by doing another investigation. Several attempts to locate the birth mother have been made with no positive results. Our lawyer is going to try to have a meeting with the judge and see if he can persuade her to see his side. The last PGN investigation took almost seven months and then another four months to wait for a hearing.

Nola was sent back to the hogar. I had hoped I would get to reschedule my trip so I could spend her 2nd birthday with her but that won't be possible with her in the hogar.

Such a Disappointment!

Pam,

Such a disappointment. I would like to say that I feel your pain, but I am certain that I can't come close. Your faith will get you there. Nola will come home. I think of you often and hope that one day soon you will get the words that you have prayed and waited for. Nola will still have a beautiful 2nd birthday deep in your heart and no one can change that in any way.
