Didn't pass again

Just got word that we didn't pass.

Here is the latest word from our coordinator:

"I just got off the phone with Shimeliss at Hope Adoptions. He said that your case was not approved because MOWA (Ministry of Women's Affairs) did not provide their recommendation to the court in time. According to Shimeliss, Hope has to provide their information to MOWA 8 to 10 days prior to the court hearing but MOWA only has to provide their recommendation 24 hours before the court hearing. Unfortunately, because of the difficulties with MOWA in that region, the reports were not provided on time. Shimeliss says that MOWA is not very organized there and is having some difficulties but that this doesn't mean they don't want the case to be approved. The good news is that they were able to get the court to leave the case in "open" status. That means, whenever MOWA does get the report ready, they can go to the court with the MOWA recommendation and should be able to get the court approval right then, without having to get another court date. He is hoping to get this resolved this week. I will check in with them daily until I have some answers."

I would like to ask everyone to pray for this to be resolved as soon as possible.
