"I prayed for this child and the LORD has granted me what I asked of Him" 1Samuel 1:27

I know if you've been following our story, you know we just got back from trip one. Wow! It was something else! From the time we were suppose to leave the airport, until the one day late unexpected flight that finally got us home.  And then of course, all the in betweens. Our boy is precious. And as I type that, the tears begin again. Awww, the roller coaster ride of international adoption. Last night we were told that the DOE in country will not send a release request for Gabe to Moscow, until she has an updated homestudy and more stuff from our Tx. agency. Yep, the one we just had done in Jan. If they came and did it today, nothing will have changed, everything will read just as it read in Jan.  It's crazy and it makes me sick at my stomach.
This just means more time until we can be issued a court date. Gabe does not have more time. We were told before our last visit that when a place opens up at one of the institutes for older kids, he will likely be transferred.
We know what that means. We have seen with our own eyes, exactly what that means. Everything in me wants to scream and shout at the ones who hold this boys life in their hands. The thought of him being taken from the only place he's ever known, the only people he's ever known, and left all by himself......I can't stand the thought.

I know you want to know all about him and our adventureous trip.....and I promise, I will share all that with you.....but right now I don't have the strength or the frame of mind to put it all in words.
Your support and prayers for us and this child, have and do mean so much. Please continue to pray us and Gabe. And I will be sharing about our trip. I just need afew days to re-group. So, be sure and check back in a couple days. Thanks for helping us LOVE GABE HOME. Here are a few pictures to hold you until I get myself together!!!
