Bump in Road

As with any international adoption there may come bumps in the road.  I was hoping at this point to have our paperwork complete and on its way to Ethiopia.  Well the USCIS office in NC is still processing applications from last summer.  We applied in October.  They need to send us an important document which states we can bring our child home to the United States.  Please, please pray for our file to be on the top of the stack very soon.  Ashleigh and Elijah pray every day for their brother to be home soon, please join them in that prayer.  As it says in James 5:16 "the prayer of a righteous man is POWERFUL and EFFECTIVE." 
Our agency has also extended the wait time for a referral to 6 1/2 months from the previous 4-6 months.  As soon as all our paperwork has been authenticated by the secretary of state offices in several states, then we are placed on the wait list for a referral.

I'm praying for some speedy efficiency with your dossier!! We returned home with Selah on Tuesday, and I can't believe that after all of the paperwork and waiting, we finally have her home!!
