Adoption Update

Hi Friends and Family,
Happy week before Thanksgiving! Thank you all so much for your continued prayers and support in our journey to bring Max home.Many of you have asked about your progress. Here is the latest:

We received word last week that the powers that be have decided to delay the implementation of the Hague convention policies and procedures till April 1st rather than the original January 1st. This is good news. This simply gives us more time to have our paperwork in the pipeline.

Our adoption agency contacted us today and told us that our paperwork is still sitting exactly where it was 3 weeks ago. We are waiting for our reports to be released from both family court and the embassy. This is an anxious wait because the next stepis really the final stop (PGN). While our stay there could be long…we want our paperwork to be there.Also, Guatemala began its holiday schedules today. Half of the “important” people will be gone between now and mid Dec.and the other half will be gone mid Dec. till mid Jan. We are hopeful that paperwork will continue to make its way through.

So there it is folks. That is all we know.
Blessings to you and your families this thanksgiving.
There is much to be thankful for.
