It's hard to believe, but it seems that our entire adoption is being held up right now by ONE piece of paper. We are having trouble getting the last document for our dossier done correctly, and it's crazy to me that one uncooperative person can throw a wrench in the whole process. While we wait on this one document, the clock is ticking on all the other documents we've already submitted. We have a 6 month window to get everything submitted to Vietnam, and that's 6 months from when the first documents were notarized (in June). I won't go into too much more detail than that, but we really need prayers right now from our brothers and sisters in Christ, please!
If you find yourself thinking of us, please pray that the road blocks will be moved quickly, and that God will soften the hearts of the individuals who are in the position to help or hinder our progress- that He will allow us to find favor with them, and they will be moved towards compassion and kindness.
We really appreciate your prayers, and know that they can make all the difference. I'm sure God has a purpose and plan in all of this, and I believe it will all work out in His timing (and maybe this delay is part of His timing)- but it never hurts to call upon fellow believers to hit their knees! Thanks! I'll let you know as soon as this problem is cleared up.
