I have spend the whole afternoon on the phone. I have called senators in Nebraska, and have been told to email several different people.  So tonight I am emailing away. Please pray, as I was told by two different people in different senator offices that they were going to work on this for us.  There is still hope to have paperwork in country very soon.

The waiting is so hard.  I keep myself busy so it  doesn't consume my every thought. I call daily to find our if we are getting close to immigration approval. We still haven't been assigned an officier as I just got off from the phone again. I pray that when I talk to someone the answer is yes your immigration paperwork is approved.   It feels like I am walking around holding my breath, and as soon as the paperwork is approved I will be able to breathe again.  The daily phone calls are starting to get to me, because they tell me the same thing day after day, and what they say is I have to wait.  So in the meantime I wait, and wait and wait some more.  The country the girls are in reopens and processes dossiers on February 9th,  and that was so my goal.  My goal was to have it all sent in for that day.  This is out of my hands there is nothing else that I can physically do to get approval.
Adoption is definitely not for the faint of heart, it's a good thing I'm not a quitter.  Trying to push through this with a good attitude, I am not good at waiting.


  1. I don't know what kind of music you listen to, but while we were waiting I always listened to the song by John Waller titled "While I'm Waiting"... That is one version on youtube, it's also in the movie Fireproof. Just thought I would try and encourage you while you wait! :)

  2. Beth,
    Have you considered having your Pediatrician write a letter of medical need based off of the health info that you have on the kids? They will expedite you if you have a letter. That's what we did and we have an officer and expect approval in the next week. Something to consider. :)
