The Wait is Finally Over

Mary Ann and I have been in an adoption process for a VERY long time, around five years. During that time we have had lots of emotional ups and downs, searching and asking for God to show us His will in the area of our family. It has been a long, and sometimes painful, road that may soon be coming to an end.

Over the weekend we received and confirmed an adoption referral from the Colombian government. Allow me to introduce Cameron.

Cameron (pictures will be posted soon), which will be his adopted name. He is currently living in an orphanage near Bogota, Colombia awaiting adoption. The Colombian adoption agency has chosen us to be his new adoptive parents.

There are lots of things that need to come together in the next couple of months in order for this adoption to be finalized and we are asking our friends and family to pray with us that it will happen. There are a number of official items that have expired that are needing to be renewed quickly, lots of preparations to be made, and financing to be secured. But we know it will all be worth it once he is home.

If you are interested in keeping up with all the latest information regarding the process, including a daily blog of the trip once we are there, visit the home page and sign up for the E-News & Updates. Doing so will allow you to receive updates anytime we post something about the adoption. You can always get the latest news by going to the Adoption News section.

We wanted to let you know what was happening so that you understand why we might seem a little spacey and preoccupied. Truth is, we are overwhelmed. We had almost given up on this process, but God had a plan. We don’t always understand His timeline, but we can trust in His results.

Thank you for your prayers.

Awaiting His Coming,
Patrick & Mary Ann Mulvehill
