Update August 2004

Well, we are one step closer! Over the past couple of weeks we have been able to finish our homestudy, complete our contract with the adoption agency, and file for our passports. Though it doesn’t seem like much, it has been a LONG process. The Lord has seen us through thus far and we are certain that He will continue to pave the way.

Next we have to put together the paperwork that will be sent to Colombia. We have an agency working with us to pull everything together, so it should go quickly. Then we will begin the long wait for our referral. We have been told that it could be 6 to 8 months before we hear anything from Colombia. We will be spending this time trying to raise the rest of the money that we need to travel. Check back soon for a way that you can help with this.

We also want to request that you pray that things will keep on track. Mary Ann’s father has decided to gift some flight miles to us to help with the $2800 airfare that we are facing. Pray that Delta will let us use these miles. Pray for our two children. The younger one may not even be born yet, so pray that their mother cares for herself well.
