I just received word today that the government body that deals with adoptions in Alice's country will stop accepting dossiers on Nov 1! We have to have ours submitted by next Monday or wait until Febuary 2011. Besides all of our paperwork expiring before then, our little girl will have to spend that much longer in a orphanage.
We have everything else ready, just waiting for the United States immigration to give us an approval letter to bring her home. I have contacted our congressman and asked for help. He told me he would contact me when he knew anything and it could take 30-60 days. It will be too late by then. I also emailed the immigration office and asked for a time line.
Please, please approach the throne and ask, on our behalf, that our approval comes this week. Even as I type this I doubt it will happen. I need to be ok with God's timing and not my own. I prayed this morning for his will to be done-on Earth as it is in heaven.
I guess, please pray for me too. This is breaking my heart.
PS-as I sit here crying and typing, 6 year old Tom came in and hugged me and said, "It's ok, Mom, she'll be home soon." He doesn't even know why I'm crying. I haven't told them yet. I guess I sit at the computer and cry and type often.
