Today is the end of our 30 day Non-Appeal wait period! The twins are officially ours and we are officially finished with the Congolese Courts.
Here is what the next steps look like:
Our lawyer will collect a series of documents (including new birth certificates)
All of those documents will need to be translated from French to English
Passports will be issued for the twins
ALL of that will be submitted to the US Embassy for review
They will issue an Embassy Appointment, which our lawyer will attend on our behalf
The Embassy will send us permission to travel
We'll pack our bags and head to DRC
Please pray with us that these next steps happen quickly! We are still praying (and hopeful) that we can bring our little ones home before the end of 2012!
Thanks for following along on our journey! We appreciate your prayers and encouragement so much!
