Two Adoption Prayer Requests

(copied from our family blog)

Although I mostly keep our Haitian adoption news separate from this blog, there are times when I feel the need to merge the two in order to ask for your prayers. This is one of those times.

Friends, we are in a desperate spot right now. For reasons unknown to us, our lawyer in Haiti is being stonewalled as he attempts to have his dossiers signed out of the country's social services offices (IBESR.) We entered this office in July of 2008; one year later our files remained unmoved with nothing but broken promises to show for all the time we have lost.

We recently received word that our lawyer even had a meeting at the presidential office, presumably face to face with President Preval. So far there has been no visible result from that meeting.

In the meantime, our sons are growing up beyond our reach and our paperwork is reaching various stages of expiration. Next week, we fly to Santiago solely for the purpose of redoing our fingerprints at the US Embassy because they expire at the end of this month. We also face the need of redoing our homestudy which means finding a US-licensed social worker willing to fly to Chile to do so (which of course we must finance as well.)

Please, would you pray with us for a miraculous release of our boys' files this week?

And then secondly, would you pray for miraculous provision for my sister's adoption this week?

She and her husband are now dossier-ready to begin their adoption from Taiwan, and all that holds them back to initiate this next step is $2000. There will be other costs in the future, but this is their immediate need and they are trusting God to provide. If you would like to know more about their story and adoption needs, you can visit their adoption website at:
Thank you so much for praying.
