Stuck Again

I know it has been awhile since I have given an update.  And many of you have not been able to follow us because the blog has been occassionally blocked.  I might block the blog more, just be patient with me as this progresses.  The truth is until today there has not been anything to tell you.  We have just been hanging around the house waiting on the embassy.
Today we knew that the embassy had the test results in their office.  We chose to prayer walk in front of the embassy as we prepared to meet with the consular.  Even though the results are in there is still a glitch in the paperwork of our adoption.  Due to this we are not being granted visas for the girls.  It looks like we are going to be stuck her for a bit longer.  Hopefully this week some questions will be answered and we can make some better decisions.  As far as right now we just don't know.  We don't know how long this is going to all take.  I hope to be home by Christmas.  I just can't think about being away from my muzungu children on Christmas.  Nancy is going to be staying here with me until we determine just how long this should take to figure out. 
Thank you so much for all the prayers that you have been sending.  Thank you to those of you that have been feeding my family and stocking my pantry.  It has been such a blessing to not have to worry about Chad and the kids.

  2. Hey Holly, I am glad to have an update. I am so sorry that you are going through this. I was just thinking about you and your family last night. I am praying for you.

  3. We are praying for y'all and know that God's ways are not our own. His timing is always perfect. Must be He still desires to use y'all there, somehow. But praying for speedy return. Can't imagine how hard this is. Funny... while I'm writing this the song "I'll Be Home for Christmas" is playing on my iTunes. Not really funny though but glad you WILL be coming home with your sweet girls whenever God sees fit to bring you home. Hope it's well before Christmas. We all can't wait!!! You are missed greatly!!
