The Wait for Hermie Continues


Unfortunately my case along with the 3 others filed with mine were not heard today. The courts are overwhelmed and two weeks away from their yearly 2 month court closure. Since they did not have time to get to them today, we were told that they will be reviewed early next week.
So another disappointment in the long trail of disappointments. Not much I can do but march on and hope next week Hermela will officially be the newest addition to the Wedekind family:)
Thanks again to my friends, family, and fellow Hopesters for the phone calls, emails, and endless support. You all truly make the blows of disappointment seem a little less painful. I hope next week will bring me, Chris, Theresa, and Nikko the news we have been patiently waiting for!!!

I love the big "SAD EYES" Smiley face!! WE will wait for Hermie, she is happy and healthy, and soon will be in here new home with you. Did you sing "HAPPY BIRTHDAY", (9 months old today)??

So sorry to hear this! I do know, from personal experience, that chocolate and/or alcohol can help slightly between the excruciating court waits! ;-) Take care and try to have a good weekend. I know you'll get the news you've been waiting so long for next week!

Hey Lisa. I'm so sorry you got pushed back. I'll be praying for good news next week. I agree with Karens alcohol n chocolate combo but would encourage you to consider adding a super size order of french fries to make sure you get your salty fix:)!
Hang in there!!!!

I am so sorry... once again. It's like running a marathon, seeing the finish line and having some court officials in a foreign land keep moving the finish line. Well it's kind of like that. We continue to pray for you and the others in your excruciating wait. I cannot wait to hear that little Hermie is coming home!
