It's been awhile since I've posted an update on our adoption journey, so here it is...
We're still waiting!!
Here's the latest -
On July 5th we found out that we had passed Court - woohoo! However, because we already have 3 bio children (the Congolese gov't likes for you to have 2) we needed a Presidential Authorization. We were told it could be 3-4 weeks before our lawyer would have that in hand.
Then, on July 31 we found out that the law requiring you to have only 2 bio children was changed (effective immediately) so our Presidential Authorization was no longer needed.
As of now, that's all we know.
Our agency has been trying to get a concrete update on our specific case since. We try to wait patiently, understanding that communication with our lawyer is difficult.
We know that a 30 day wait period is up next (giving anyone who may want to appeal the Court's decision the opportunity), but we're not sure if we are officially in that wait period or not.
Waiting is never easy, but we do have absolute faith in God's timing! For us "God's perfect timing" is not a cliche, it is simply the place where our hearts rest.
"Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I entrust my life." Psalm 143:8
Each day is a new day! We'll continue trusting in God's timing and resting in His unfailing love for us and for our precious little ones!
We'll keep on waiting and praying!
