Thank you all for praying! The US Consular Section in Haiti has begun again to schedule these appointments. Families who received approval from USCIS and who began the wait for the visa in mid-January are seeing appointments scheduled for February 20 and later. We received our USCIS approval on January 28.
March 1, 2011 was the date of our first court appearance in Haiti. It would be ironic if our visa appointment were scheduled for that day. We certainly did not expect a 2 year process at that point.
On that trip in March 2011, our orphanage director told me we were looking at an 15-18 month process in Haiti. I refused to believe her because I knew I had a big God who could move mountains and the laborious process was nothing against His power. And I maintain that all of that is still true! The pace of my adoption does not negate His power and does not mean that He wasn’t involved, didn’t care about me or my family. Instead, He used these 24 months to teach me a lot about myself and to sculpt and mold me more closely to His image.
I don’t regret the last two years of this process. I am a different woman because of them. He’s not done molding me yet and the arrival of our boys will start a new chapter in that process.
Thank you for praying for my family.
How can I be praying for you?
