Court Date Tonight/Tomorrow!

Posted by Angie at 7:00 AM
Tonight's an important night.

Tonight it will be July 25th in Taiwan and a judge will hear our adoption case.

Our Taiwanese Power of Attorney (probably His Hands' administrative assistant Rae Fang) will go to court on our behalf.  Levi's biological mother (and possibly her family) will also be in attendance.  This is such an important step for finalizing our adoption of Levi.

What can you do?  Please pray with us.  We would appreciate prayers at any time today (perhaps that the judge is getting a good night's sleep so he/she will be in a good mood tomorrow), but we especially need prayers tonight!  Taiwan is 12 hours ahead of the eastern time zone, so at 8 pm tonight it will be 8 am in Taiwan, and so forth.  So, by the time you wake up tomorrow, our court date will actually already be over!

Here are some specific prayer requests that we have in our hearts:

1)  That God will grant us favor with the judge
2)  That all the paperwork will arrive in court and be "in order"
3)  That every person expected to be in attendance will be there (and on time!)
4)  That God will give comfort and reassurance to Levi's birth mother and family that he will be deeply loved and cared for, and she will want to meet us and maintain contact with us in the years to come

Thank you all!

Much love,
Blessed Mama

Eek! How exciting! Prayers!  I hope the next 24 hours sees Levi firmly as yours!

Praying for you! So, are you thinking travel might be about two months from the court date? I hope it all goes smoothly!
