I had a really eloquent post written in my head about adoption and attachment issues. How some kids are treated as throw-aways and how the system fails everyone in tough situations, but I am too tired to write it. I was so sure that I would be bringing PBJ home by now, or at least have a solid date for that. I thought about how it would be over the holidays with her there. How we could use all the chaos that the holidays bring to give her extra stimulation. How much fun it would be to have the kids' Christmas portraits taken in matching outfits. And now I just have to wonder if that will happen.

Someone from PBJ's village has filed with the court's contesting her adoption. I don't know who it is or if they want to parent her, or if they just have a problem. In fact, I don't know much of anything. The court still has not signed off on her file and released it. Is the birth mother really deaf/mute and illiterate? If so, how did she pass the interview in Family Court? It seems more likely she just doesn't speak Spanish, but then why can't an interpretor be found and solve that issue pronto? Or did they do that already? What is the problem? Can it be fixed? When will it be fixed? What is really going on?????

My goodness, this has to be so
difficult for you. I am so
sorry, it certainly seems to be
one thing after the other. You
would think someone would know
something. I will continue to
keep you in my prayers.

God bless you

I just can't believe all that is going on with this adoption. I will continue to pray for you, your family and the children you are waiting to bring home.

I'm so sorry you have so many unanswered questions.

It is terrible what you and PBJ are going through. Things like this should never happen. She should be home with you right now getting stronger and healthier.
I will pray for you!!

Wendy- I am sorry to hear of this set back. I just don't know what to say. My heart is breaking for you, for PBJ, for Ahren, and for your family.

Love to you,

Oh Wendy. I know nothing anyone can say will make this any easier, short of "it's just been approved." Please just know that there are SO many people out there thinking of you, praying for you, and wanting to help. You are an amazing, determined, committed mommy and a wonderful person. I hope PBJ gets to come home to you soon.

If certain legislator's offices were open, I'd be dialing my phone. If you need me on the horn tomorrow, just say the word.

Why didn't the attorneys and facilitators in GT search out available PBJ relatives before now and eliminate this problem?

OH.... MY.... GOSH... I am just stunned speechless. It's like a nightmare. I just can't wrap my mind around it. I am so sorry. I don't even know what to say. I am praying for you. Angel

Not sure what to say because there are no easy words of comfort in your situation. I do hope that it gets resolved quickly so that you can move forward.

Still praying
