Working though bad news

Late last week we got disturbing news from our adoption agency, they had failed in their second attempt to become certified according to the Hague convention on International adoption. This, combined with China's proclamation that they wouldn't accept dossiers from non-Hague agencies after July 15th left us uncertain what would happen.
It was tough, I felt like I'd been kicked in the stomach. It was very hard to institute the pray without ceasing and the praise Him in all things, but I struggled through to get that point. We believe God has led us through this whole process, so why would he throw up this roadblock?
I waited for news and then sent a concise and polite email asking what our particular situation needed to have happen. I'm very glad I waited to ascertain until I was calm; on several yahoo groups I watched many people not wait until they got calm. It wasn't nice.
We still don't know why, but we do know that another agency will now be sending in our dossier to China so that there should be very little, if any, delay in our process.

Yeah I saw that too. So glad you won't have much of a change in your process. I wondered if that would affect you. It makes me sad that this happened and the explaination was a glitch on the domestic cert in a state when the agency doesn't do domestic? weird.

I'm so glad it is all going to work out, but I'm sorry for the stress that it put you through! I will pray for no more speed bumps so that your daughter is home in record time!

We've been praying for you and your family as well. We heard about the news and waited patiently (checking twice daily) to hear your news. So glad to hear that there won't be much delay (if any!) and thanks for keeping us up to date :-) Erika and family

You are right on with this post . Also, right before this happened Julia called to say that the CCAA is going to pull our original dossier. I also felt liek it got very hard to praise him in all things. I thought he was doing something and it left me confused. Even though i am just fine with my ONE!!

So glad things are progresing for you!!!
