On Monday we learned that our Motion to Reconsider had been denied.  We were hoping that even if we lost the motion, the supreme court would change some of the language in the ruling.  They did not.  Adoption law is now worse off than it was because of our case.

Monday started our 30 days.  We have 30 days or less before custody has to be transferred.

By January 4th someone who is a stranger to Waverley will be her new parent.

She will no longer live in our home.

We will no longer be her mommy, daddy, and big sister.

Please pray for our Wavy. The clock is ticking while we scramble to complete and put into practice a transition plan for her that the court will approve.  Our trauma therapist that is helping to develop and present this plan is upset that the court would think 30 days (or less) is an acceptable timeframe to start and finish a transition of this nature.  Besides being devastated we are extremely stressed as we try to this in the best possible way for Wavybel.

Please pray that Judge Shepherd will make the right choices for Wavy when we present our transition plan to him.

Please pray that we will use the right words when we try to explain this to our girls in the next few days.

Please just pray.

Thank you.

Im in shock and disbelief. I guess I just want God to do what I want and let you keep Wavy. Its not fair its not right and I am not even close to you, I cant imagine what this is like for you. Will you get to be a part of her life? How is this even fair to her? Im going to stop now because you dont need to hear complaints from me, a complete stranger. I will pray.

Lord,
Change this, fix it make it better. You are God and you can do anything. You do things all in your time and also so last minute so that people would have to believe it is You. Be with this family. Give them strength to go through this, give them hope in tomorrow. Hold them when they cant stand and wipe the tears that fall. Above all else Lord let Waverly not be affected by this at all. Impossible it seems but not with you God. Let her feel you and know she has not been abandoned. If she must go let it be temporary, change the hearts of the other family involved. God please, fix this. In Your name I pray. Amen.


Be blessed

:(

I too had wanted to see a miracle with Wavy staying with you. So hard to know that God is a loving and just God and yet not see how this is applied in this situation. Your blog is beautiful full of wonderful thoughts and prayers about adoption. Some day Wavy will read these emails and will know that she was loved by you all and so many strangers. I pray you will have some contact with her during transition as well as her life. My love to you both, Elizabeth

I can hardly think of anything to type. Just praying for God to work... somehow, some way. Just praying. Love to you...

heavy hearted as i read your last update...
may supernatural strength carry your hearts, souls and minds...you, m, wavy and h.
can't stop staring at the pic you posted on the 6th- the bond you've allowed those two to foster will last a lifetime---though an absence will be endured--their sisterhood will not be broken.

My heart is breaking for you. Today I watched the movie "Losing Isaiah" and I thought of your family. I can't even imagine the emotions, devastation you are going through. We recently have been completely heartbroken and devastated ourselves, losing 3 of our babies, I can't say to get through this will be easy, but cling to our Lord and Savior, he is with you, with your family, and will never leave you. He has amazing plans for your family although they seem so hard to see and believe right now. Keep trusting in Him, keep breathing. Praying for all of you. Love, The Bells
