The Next Steps

Now that our dossier is on it's way to Ghana things are suddenly feeling really real. Like this really could happen. It may not be a dream after all. Wow!

I got an e-mail from our agency today saying that the folks in Ghana have Mercy's paperwork ready to go and will combine our stuff with hers when it gets there next week. Once everything is ready they will schedule a court date. We are thinking sometime in the next month (maybe a little more or less). After court is done and our adoption has been granted, we will file our I-600 and wait for her visa to be approved.

Our specific prayer requests include:
  • that we will be awarded a grant from Shaohannah's Hope
  • that we will have a speedy court date with a full adoption granted
  • that we will receive our country change approval and a new I-171H for Ghana from USCIS soon
  • that God will prepare everyone's hearts for the big change that could be happening sooner than we think

Thanks for your prayers...have a great weekend!

Heh, I meant efficient. Maybe that's why the Lord is putting me through Haiti hell. I'm too stupid for Ghana.
