1. We are praying that everything's good to go and the embassy gives us a green light for travel!
2.We are also praying that we get an "embassy date" the week of June 27-30 so we can get home with the kids before my sister leaves for Peru on July 5th.
We should hear back from the embassy in 1-2 weeks. We also got updates on the kids yesterday and they're both healthy and growing:). We absolutely cannot wait to go back...it's starting to feel close and the excitement is definitely building!!! We've been taking time to look back and reflect on how far God's brought us on this journey....He is so faithful and we are trusting in Him, not the embassy or the process, but trusting in Him to bring our children home in His time!
As I mentioned before, there are several families waiting in this stage of the process with us. It has been such a blessing to email, encourage, and pray for one another throughout the journey. We found out several of those families were submitted with us! There are also several families SO close to submitting, hopefully next week. We're praying God's hand continues to work to bring all these little ones home! When you go visit your own children and see an orphanage full of kids waiting for their families, it does something to your heart. You deeply long to see them reunited and restored to their waiting families. Many of these other waiting children are the only family Malachi and Hadassah have known this past year. So, please pray for all these cases to move forward smoothly!
