No Court Date, No Girls

We have been waiting the last three weeks for our court date to be scheduled. When we received a call from the adoption director yesterday, we were afraid something was wrong, but we never imagined this. It had just come to light, through the girls talking with the nannies, that they are not sisters, and they are not orphans. The families were hoping to give the girls a better life and falsified the documentation at the orphanage (as far as can be determined). We are so very heartbroken. Words cannot express our devastation.

Please know that we have complete confidence in CHI and admire their high dedication to ethics. We know that they were deceived as well and they are trying to determine an even higher standard to ensure this does not happen again. In the meantime, we are back on the waiting list. Last week, in the weekly update, families were notified that the wait for siblings could be up to 16 months. We hope and pray that we don't have to wait another 10 months and will try to continue to have faith in God's timing - but honestly, right now, it is hard.

Oh my gosh!! I am so sorry. I can't even imagine the disappointment you must be going through. I am so sorry! Hopefully the wait is really short!!

What a sad state of things that parents would go to such lengths to find good homes for their children! I hope the rest of this process is as quick and painless as possible, and I know your home will indeed be a good place for your future children, whenever they're able to join you.

Holy! When it rains it pours! Sorry to hear. I wish there was a silver lining I could think of to try and make this not seem so sucky! But there's really not. That just sucks. I pray that it works out for you in some way. Take care. Thanks for the updates.
