After 2 months, almost to the day, of waiting we have received a court date. Our court date is scheduled for February 16th. Since our court date has been received, the court will issue a court summons to our in-country Gladney representatives to submit to the Ministry of Women’s Affairs (MOWA) to notify MOWA of the court date. Gladney's in-country representatives then submit the court summons and the files to MOWA 10 business days before the court date, in order for MOWA to review the files and to write an opinion regarding the adoption case. Typically, MOWA writes the opinion the day before the court date and submits the opinion to the courts on the day of the court date. It is our hope and prayer that God will show His favor on our court date, that He will orchestrate all of the details, and that He will give us peace in the midst of waiting. We know He has scripted each day of our lives and our son's life. We know His timing is perfect. We do trust His timing, but we have a difficulty making our desires align with His ways! And we count it a privilege to take our requests before His throne. So, please, join us praying!
