Our friends Joe and Emily who are in the process of adopting Samuel are still waiting for their birth mom to sign the consent papers. It has been about 2 1/2 weeks since they received Samuel into their care. He is a darling, tiny baby and doing great, but it would give them great peace if the birth mom - and all those who need to be present - could schedule a time to sign the papers (it can be complicated when a number of people need to be there when the papers are signed).
Please pray for everyone's schedules and a quick resolution. The birth mom has given them no reason to think she won't sign the papers, it just seems to be logistics. Pray that Emily and Joe can have peace in the meantime. We are so thrilled for our dear friends and understand how tough the wait can be....for the parents, grandparents and all those who care about them.
I'll keep you posted. Thank you!
