Our friends, or my in town kids, or adopted kids, or whatever we call them, usually Rowdy's family, has been trying for over a year to adopt a sweet little girl. So many obstacles have been put in their way. Frustrations, anger, tears, but they haven't given up. They feel they are being called to be parents to this child.
They visited back in February, and fell even more deeply in love with her. The photos they had seen were pale in comparison to this spunky little chunky girl they want to call daughter.
Obstacles, bureaucracy, politics, so many things have kept them from their girl. Finally, a court date in early October. We are all nervously excited. Hoping and praying that the barriers will come down and they will be given permission to adopt this child.
