Prayers Appreciated.

Tomorrow, (Thursday) is the day that samples for the 3rd and hopefully last DNA test are scheduled to be taken. We, (more importantly Olivia) has been waiting 3 years for the answer to the mystery of whether the Guatemalan family in question is or is not related to her. 3 years when we know a definite answer can actually be obtained in a matter of weeks, if not days.

Provided the samples are taken tomorrow and taken properly, and the right tests are run and performed properly, we've been told we can expect results in either 3 months or 6 months. In other words, probably sometime this summer. As always, there are way too many factors to any one aspect of this process, and we are praying hard that everything that has to happen tomorrow and subsequently through to getting the result, will be done right. Olivia is very confused as to what her future holds and she deserves an answer as soon as possible.

Would you please join us in praying for Olivia and the testing that will hopefully give her closure, peace and a family?

Thank you.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. ~ Philippians 4:6

Today's Hearing

Long day, long story. We did see Olivia today and she was beautiful. We did not get the adoptability decree we had hoped for. They will do one final DNA test, taking samples on March 21st. We've been assured they will do the proper test this time. If the results favor the Guatemalan family, they will take her and that will be the end of our case. If the results show no relation to them, we can proceed to adopt her. We will again have to wait for results which will come back in June.

Thank you everyone for your diligent prayers. God heard them....we still have hope!
