This humanitarian alibi - maybe that's all it is? I hope and pray that's all it is. Unfortunately, the longer I traverse this crazy world the more clouded, fuzzy and downright LOST my rose colored glass become. My heart is heavy. If I could just find that big pile of sand and see if my head will still fit ...
What does this mean for us?
* No orphanage license means no local social workers which means any pictures or updates we send will not be taken to birth family (hopefully agency figures out a plan B very quickly)
* Our agency will not be able to facilitate another meeting between us and the boys' birth father when we travel to adopt MB (again, hoping, praying and pushing for a plan B)
* Our biggest concern: Will this cause yet another major delay to MB's case? He's already been in care far longer than almost all of his peers and oh, how my heart aches for him.
Please pray for this situation. Pray for all the children and birth families stuck in the middle, and that when the dust settles over all of this, justice and mercy will prevail for both. And please pray for MB. He's been without a family far too long. Please Lord, no more delays.
