Pray Them Home

After having 4 years of secondary fertility issues, we decided to embark on our adoption journey to Guatemala. I felt so relieved when I sent the application in knowing in approx. 1 year or so we would have a beautiful baby to add to our family. This adoption journey has brought me many happy and many sad tears. Most of you know by now that Guatemala has suspended all adoption cases for now until they feel they have a grip on the legal aspect of the cases. There are approx 2900 cases on hold right now. PGN(attorney general's office) has held all cases for almost 4 weeks now. They are reinterviewing birthmothers who have already been interviewed in Family Court and making sure there is no change in their decision to relinquish their rights. It seems everyday there is another rule or hoop to jump through. Sometimes I feel so defeated. Poor Kainen is 6 years old next month and has stopped asking about when Kinsey is coming home. I cry at the drop of a hat, I can't sleep, I am tired of people asking about the timeframe. I DON'T KNOW the timeframe. THere are so many families who are experiencing this heartache and I hate it. Just know that there are many delays ahead and I believe the Power of Prayer is bigger than anything else. Kinsey and all the other children out there need us and your prayers. Lets Pray them home......

Britt, Your post brought tears to my eyes. I remember all too well the pain of the wait and I can't imagine how much stress is added by all of the changes going on. Kinsey is in our prayers, as well as all of the others stuck in the mess. Sending big hugs....

The waiting sucks! I am so blessed to be here with Aeson in Guatemala, but there is so much going on at home that I need to be there, too. Hang in there... one way or another we will all get through this together.

I have been on my knees for all the babies waiting to come home and for all their families! I have been begging and pleading with the Lord! I know that in His time, they will all come home, but the wait is just so difficult! I hate that you and others are stuck in this mess! I am praying Kinsey home every day and praying for peace in your heart!

Big hugs to you and your family!

I'm praying right along with you honey! We're gonna get them home!!
And I think we're stronger knowing our prayers are multiplied. There are so many out there who have been in our situation or are going through it now. Our prayers will not go unheard.

Still planning on that dual pick-up!

We're praying, believe me!! This is just awful and so unfair. But it will all work out and that beautiful little girl will be home before you know it.
