Our First Information for 2008
What an emotional day! The JCICS (our U.S. Immigration) issued a statement today that PGN cases would be halted unless approved to continue being processed. No one knows what "approved" cases are. This PGN won't process any other cases until they have been registered with the new "Central Authority" of Guatemala. Guess what?! That agency does NOT exist. We hope and pray that the JCICS will put pressure on the Guatemala government to find a band-aid to allow cases to continue while the "Central Authority" is being developed. I have been very upset knowing that our daughter is sitting in Guatemala without us and our care! We believe in our hearts and have every indication from the Guatemalan government and our government that we will get Malaena-Sloan home. It is just going to take a little longer than we expected! It's hard for me not to be a little sad as I am totally ready to bond with my daughter and love and care for her every minute of every day! I know this is a bump-in-the-road and our girl is totally worth the wait. We know God is in charge of our adoption, so He will resolve this in HIS time! Please keep all in-process adoptions in your prayers!
