PTI denial appeal was denied.
The initial court time was 9:00am but it was postponed for 1:30pm. I had the afternoon off to study some more before my Ultrasound Physics Registry Exam tonight at 5:30pm, so I quickly made the decision that losing out $200 for the test registration was worth being at court with DH. (I couldn't take off work to be there this morning, because other people's ovaries don't care about my personal life ;) - and, I love that I can be available for people when they need it.)
I tried so hard to not break down after the ruling, to be strong for DH, just as I had told him beforehand that even the worst case scenario would mean that someday we can attempt fostering. And I wasn't lying. I really felt, before we went in, that everything would be ok, NO MATTER WHAT the outcome. But for some reason (um, maybe because there was a friggin' PREGNANT LADY sitting right smack in front of me in the courtroom the entire time- what the hell?????!!!) I just lost it thinking about not being able to adopt.
Friends, I need your prayers now more than ever. I know God has a plan for us. Please pray that He will bring lightness out of this darkness.
Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us.
St Joseph, pray for us.
St Anthony, pray for us.
St Rita, pray for us.
