This morning we rec`d a call from our agent, Cathy with some less than great news. SHe had rec`d an email from our Latvian Attorney that Meggie`s Biological Father has appealed his termination of parental rights. These rights were taken in Feb 2008 and upon finding out that she has an adoptive family he decides to appeal. Our lawyer said that a high level court date has been set for early December. The court will not reverse the decision because he hasn`t made any contact with Meggie. This apparently will not affect our adoption, only delay it.
We are asking for your prayers:
1) that the date will be moved up. (we had hoped to travel in Oct);
2) for wisdom on the part of the judge. They will see the big picture & seek to do whats best for Meggie;
3) that our hearts will remember daily that God is in control.
Thank you for your prayers & support!
