I really want everyone know how much we appreciate your prayers and the love you have shown to our family in our absence. And I also want to thank you for your patience with me as the blogging has not been as frequent or as full as I would have liked. I know everyone has been waiting to hear our news. First, we now have Meseret in our arms! She is even more beautiful than we had imagined. This goes for Beautiful E as well. Beautiful E was given permission to stay with Ray and I this week at the hotel. She has not been able to pass through court this week and there are no allowances on any court appeals. We will not be brining her home until late November. But before everyone feels that this was not the answer to prayer that we wanted, let me correct you….this was the BEST answer for our beautiful daughter. Please understand that our prayers were answered in the most amazing way. We all prayed that E would pass through court, we just did not know when we prayed this that it was not E that needed to pass, but it was Ray and I that needed to pass through the court of a mother's heart. We were given an opportunity to meet with E's sick mother. She is a most amazing, beautiful, and Godly woman and Beautiful E resembles her in all of these ways. We were sanctified through a process that only God could have brought about. In a small dark room two mothers and one father joined together in unity to assure the safe keeping of a child's heart and soul. E's mother was given the gift of eternal peace knowing that she would separate with E for this short time of life only to be reunited with her for all eternity. And God was present in that tiny room. This is E's time to be with her mother in her last days and on November 8 all the paperwork will be at court for the tenth time and we will see if it passes. If not, it really does not matter because it will eventually. God told me was E does not need to pass through court. She needed to pass from one mother's arms right into the arms of another. The paperwork is just a side note in a miracle that God planned long ago when a dying mother sent up a petition to the maker of the universe and requested that her daughter be safe for eternity. I do not understand how I got to be the one to complete this work that God started on the day this child was born, but I am. I do not feel qualified or worthy, but I can see how much God loves this child and I am sure that the tools I need will be provided. This work that was started will be finished as the love of God is revealed fully in the life of Beautiful E…just watch and see!
