Quick Agency Update

I just included this information in the comments of this post from last Tuesday, so I'm kind of repeating myself here, but I realize not everybody goes back and reads comments. To clarify, the post saying I hadn't heard from my agency was written around 12:30- 1:00, last Tues. morning. We received an email from WACAP on Tues. afternoon around 4:00 pm. Elizabeth (our coordinator) called a few days after that. We are still undecided about what we'll do. I brought up the topic of getting a refund, since most of our agency's other programs are not a good fit for our family (due to age and/or family size). I don't think we'll be holding our breath, waiting to see any money back. It didn't sound very hopeful and the subject was quickly dropped. So... We're stuck. Still hoping and praying for a miracle. Please join us. We'll take all the prayers we can get. I don't care if it's 99.9999% impossible that we'll complete an adoption from Vietnam. My Bible says:

"Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Matt. 19:26

"For nothing is impossible with God." Luke 1:37

"Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God." Luke 18:27

"He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 'Where is your faith?' He asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, 'Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.'" Luke 8:25

"I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matt. 17:20

And right now, I just so happen to have faith as small as a mustard seed, so... there you go! It's just as easy to believe as not. So we will believe.

To those of you who commented about our agency's lack of response, I appreciate your concern and just wanted to let you know that we did hear from them. And, as always, your kind and supportive comments mean the world to us. Keep them (and the prayers) coming!

Thank you, friends! Blessings to all. HUGS!

Michelle, just wanted to let you know you are in my prayers. I really really really pray things turn a corner and this works out for you and so many other waiting families and children.

Hi Michelle-
I found you through Laurie and have been reading you for a while....
I've got another one for ya-
“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” Jeremiah 32:27

Good one! Love it! Thank you.

We are in the same place you are, but our agency gave us some hope that Vietnam will reopen in March of 09 if/when they get Hague accredited. Has your agency talked with you about this? I'm sure if I'm holding out on false hope or not. I will pray for you and Sam. Blessings, Kelly

No- I haven't heard any news like that from our agency, but I'll ask. That would be great. All I've been told is that all dossiers without referrals will be returned after Sept. 1st. Thank you for letting me know, though! I hope you're right!!
