OK - I know that is a crazy title for a post, but it's what has come to mind as I've been praying for my sweet girl.
When I was waiting to go through customs in Russia I was praying that God would pave the way for me - I was nervous and let's face it, as I've said before, I've seen far too many Bond films for my own good! As I was praying, a scene from Star Wars came to mind - you know the scene where Obi Wan and Luke encounter the Storm Troopers who are looking for C3PO and R2 - Obi Wan says "you don't need to see his ID...these aren't the droids you're looking for" and through the use of the "force" the Storm Troopers repeat what he says and send them on their way. Now, I'm in no way comparing Obi Wan to God - I'm just saying that this scene came to mind as I was waiting - it made me smile and I have to admit, I prayed that God would smooth way for me - that I would be waved on through....and I was.
Anyhow, this memory made me smile tonight as I was praying for my little one and the current requests for paperwork. The region has now decided they need copies of my sister's passport and Syd's birth certificate - UGH! Like me, both were born in CA so getting them is not quick and easy. All this to "verify their names"? What?
So, now I'm praying that God would wave my paperwork on through and a court date would be assigned - "of course, she should be your daughter" :)
