small update

Our agency heard from Ryan's orphanage last week. They expect our case to take about 3-4 months to clear court and for Ryan's passport to be issued, then for us to TRAVEL TO INDIA. Sister at the orphanage said she filed our case last month, right after we received NOC. Our new expected date for travel went from 3-4months (back in January when we were matched) to 12months now. She expects we will be in India by Dec 2013-Jan2014, so a year after being matched but I guess we'll take it. It's nice to know we are making some progress and we have a date to look forward to even if it's six months later than originally planned. Of course we would love for a miracle of travel by November but I have learned in all of this to not get my hopes up. The constant disappointment is too much to bear at times. Our next step is to work on our travel visas so we will be doing that soon since September is half way over and hopefully December will be here soon enough. "Keeping myself busy while I wait" has been my mantra since May and it looks like that will continue for the next few months...

  1. I'm so sorry. I know how disappointed you must be. But, you have a Christmas ahead of you that you will never forget!

    I found a website you might be interested in. It is a ministry helping women in India get out of sex trafficking. They learn a trade of making things and then these items (made by the women themselves) are sold at fair market price in the US. They have baby quilts made of saris and there is one that is perfect for a little boy. I thought you might want to get it for your new baby boy. I know it is something I want to do when we get our referral. The link is :http://ucountcampaign.org/
    Then just click on "shop". Shopping, chocolate, and lots and lots of prayer is how we will make it through the waiting!

  2. NNNNOOO!!! I'm so sorry!! I hate this for you! I know you want nothing more than to have him in your arms. It's going to feel so good to just get to hold him for days when you finally have him. He's going to love it too. Praying for a quick miracle!
