What a mess!!

We are in a mess!   I must admit, I feel a bit defeated!

Our social worker e/m'd us - she stated that I am not allowed to adopt as a married individual.  It's against New York State law.  So I e/m'd the Reece's Rainbow team ASAP and Andrea with the subject being "Help".  Andrea responded and was so nice to send an e/m to our social worker explaining the situation.  Our social worker was then willing to look in to it and she is now waiting for a call from New York State to see if I am allowed to adopt Lyla  - hopefully we will know more tomorrow. 

If she is not able to  approve me as a "married individual' to adopt Lyla and update our Home study stating that - We will not be allowed to adopt her!  That's That!!! 

So I again need help in prayer, Friends.  GOD is soooo Good and He opened this door for us - He will not CLOSE it!!!!!

Faith, Faith, Faith, Faith, Faith, Faith, Faith!!!!!!!! 

Thank you ALL!!!  Your support has been Amazing!!!  I am sure it is getting very old to read these negative posts but hang in there a little longer because we are bound to have some Super Good News one of these days!!!!


  1. okay, if the worst case scenario happens and you can't adopt her, you could choose another child who is just a tad older so the 45 years difference wouldn't be a factor right? just curious. I know your heart says Lyla of course....

  2. I hope they get things figured out and you can bring Lyla home. We will be praying that they can find away around this.

  3. Yes faith!!! You have been waiting for her and you shall have her....she needs you guys too. So yes I will be saying a prayer for Lyla to be your very own special girl. Keep the faith, like you said Gos is soooo Good!

  4. Oh, sweet Lyla needs you! Only God can open doors that no man can close, and close doors that no man can open. I am believing with you that God will make a way, where there seems to be no way!!!! He is working in ways we can not see!!! He will make a way you'll see! Hang in there. Blessing!

  5. Trust, trust, trust. Sometimes that's the hardest thing to do, isn't it? This is completely in the hands of the One who knows the answers. Hang in there!
