Update on CoC - Certificate of Citizenship

I am so overdue in sharing this news, but until they were in my hands (which occurred two weeks ago with the visit of my parents) I hesitated to shout it from the rooftops.

Perhaps you remember when back in February we received word that despite being US passport holders and having entered the United States from Haiti on immigrant visas, each of our sons was denied his Certificate of Citizenship.

Then in April we unexpectedly received a letter from USCIS requesting 2x2 photographs of both Ian and Alec, and it was suggested that perhaps the CoC's were being processed after all.

In addition, we had a fellow adoptive father offer to make discreet inquiries on our behalf since he had the ear of someone at the office and next thing we knew, the CoC's were on their way!

We are so grateful to God for moving this way and to the many who prayed with us for this wonderful answer. To God be the glory!
