She's 8 Months Plus A Day


I thought of it yesterday. We spoke of it.

Yesterday she turned 8 months. A teeny, tiny, wee, eight months old.

Had it not been for a 36 hour (marathon) migraine, I most certainly would have posted on the day.

And we continue to pray fervently for that one single letter of support.

I've read reports of court closures from August 8th (the 5th being the last day) until October 15th - which nearly led me to tears. I've also read of a family who has an October 13th court date, so the latter can't be 100% true.

So, what's a girl to do with so many question marks and unanswered queries? (The migraine was likely inevitable.)

Your prayers, kind words and thoughts - they are so encouraging! Please don't stop. A friend told me recently that she would pray, with perhaps a little begging thrown in. (Insert giant smile here.)

Truth be told, I'm not above prayerfully begging either.

We need to get our little girl home.

I don't think God wants us to be above begging! The parable of the persistent widow (Luke 18:1-8) tells us to continually approach God with our prayers. They don't bother Him, they are a sweet incense. (Rev 5:8, 8:3-4) What glory God gets when we pray realizing our utter need for His intervention and His utter sufficiency to give us what we desire. Persevere!

I will continue to pray too... really hard until your daughter is in your arms.
I can't wait to see pictures of your daughter when you are able and willing to share!
Happy 8 months and a day wee one!
