I'm not sure who all is actually reading my blog, but if you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior please pray for us. We started Michael's adoption about 25 months ago. We were told that he would be home within 12-18 months from the time our paperwork arrived in Haiti. Our paperwork arrived in Haiti on May 2, 2006. We have been approved by the Haitian social services department for over a year. We are approaching the one year mark of Michael legally being our son. My emotions are shot. We get told that we should be getting a passport soon and then we get told that it was a mistake and then we get told that we should be getting a passport soon and then they tell us that we are missing a signature and now we have been told that our file has really gone to get the passport printed. Now we sit and wait and wait and wait. We don't get much information so sometimes my mind lets me hope that maybe something has happened and we just don't know it yet and then sometimes I feel like curling up in bed and just crying. There are times when my mind starts to question whether we are ever going to see our son again. Then I fight those thoughts with all I have because they make me feel guilty, like I am abandoning my son. It is soooo hard. Then people wonder why there are so many orphans that never get adopted. Why do governments have to make it so difficult to process an adoption. Why does the US require a Haitian passport for my son, who is legally my son, to come home to me. Why?
Lord, please protect my son and allow him to come home to us. Amen.
