Adoption application signed and mailed.

July 20, 2015
Today we signed and mailed the application for adoption (again). Once it gets to the attorney in Lesotho, he will file it with the court.  Then we wait for M's adoption to us to be finalized.  The application indicated his adoption will be finalized in August!  We've been told that once the adoption is finalized,  we notify the USCIS and wait for a date to pick up M's visa in Johannesburg.  That will mean travel to our precious M!!! 

Please pray with us that his adoption finalization is expedient!  And that the visa process is too!

We are cautiously excited!

Celebrating another hurdle!

July 14, 2015

As this journey has so far taken just over 2 years, we have learned to CELEBRATE each time another obstacle is cleared.


We learned today that the final signatures were acquired by the necessary officials in Lesotho permitting Mohale to be adopted by our family!!!  We've been told to expect it to take about a month until Mohale's adoption is finalized in a Lesotho Court.  This is a rough estimate.
Our agency will notify us once the adoption has been finalized.

Then, we will be able to submit a final form to the USCIS requesting visa approval for Mohale.  
The final hurdle will be for the USCIS to give us a date to pick up his visa in Johannesburg!  That will mean TRAVEL TIME!!!

Daring to hope again that he will be in our arms this year...this fall?
For Christmas?  Thanksgiving?
Maybe, just maayybe, September-ish????

Now asking for people to partner in prayer with us for an obstacle free, expedient re-adoption process.

(Ice cream for dinner tonight:)
