Up in the Air

Mercy's elusive passport has still not been obtained. I was told today that they reapplied (for the third time) and that we could expect it in two weeks. Keep in mind that when I hear "two weeks" what I am really thinking is that it will be "two months"...or maybe "two years". We are now running into the day that the new and improved biometric passport system will start.

We passed court five months ago. It's starting to feel like an eternity.

How frustrating for all of you! I hope Mercy is home soon. Hugs.

Don't know you, but just wanted to let you know I'm praying for you & your little girl! We just started the adoption process from Ghana, so my heart breaks for you having to wait to hold your little girl!

I'm so sorry. It seems you are hit from both sides. I want to make it better. I remember the "next week" news over and over. But my kids came home, and I trust your Mercy will be home with you soon. I continue to pray God's speed.
Big cyber hug!

I have no words...lots of frustration that you are having to walk this incredibly long path just to hold your daughter in your arms...but no words to offer. I am sorry. We are praying and sending you much love!

Oh I am so sorry that your "two weeks" is so identical to my "making much progress", When Mercy and Daniel are finaly home we will gradually forget how long this all was, but for now, the weeks feel like months and the months each feel like 3 or 4 rolled into one, the waiting on that phone call or email which have been so frustratingly short of good news all seem unbelievably distorted when held up against a calendar or a clock.
I'm trusting with you that your GOOD NEWS comes this week!!

My heart goes out to you . It is hard to think of those children that went back to their parents and yet we must trust God not our feelings(they are not reliable). The mix of joy and anguish is so present at this time. The joy of seeing the 3A kids on American soil safe and sound and yet know many are in Haiti who know in what condition.
With God all things are possible!!
Love in Christ
