Sling, cast and court papers!

It's been a week of ups and downs, but thankfully mostly ups!  :)  Our court papers were sent to our placing agency and then on to Taiwan.  They should arrive on Monday at the latest!  This is wonderful news for us because this officially starts our 4-month wait (approximately).  So YAY for our court papers being on their way!!!  We've been waiting for this moment for a long time.  :)

And then the down part of our week...  A couple of days ago we received a call from Julie (placing agency), telling us that she received the new pictures and update of Grace.  In her pictures, she has a sling and cast on one of her arms!  :(  Julie called the orphanage, and apparently Grace fell out of her bed and fractured her arm.  :(  My Mama heart was so sad, and I so desperately wished I could be there to hold her!  But, we are also very grateful that she is in an orphanage that provided her with immediate medical care.  God is watching over her.  Keep praying for Grace!  She's a busy girl!  :)

We were hoping to receive the new pictures of her today, but they didn't arrive.  Hopefully tomorrow...  We LOVE getting new pictures!!
