Hooray! Praying that every step goes quickly and smoothly from here on out and that the long road to Eliana is as short as possible....does that makes sense? It did in my head but not sure as I type it. Praying for you all daily.

Oh Yea!! I know people who were in PGN and aren't even registered yet, so that is SO GREAT that you are!!!!

Something to CELEBRATE!!!

Does this mean you can continue with what you had before 2007 ended? (meaning just POA?)

My heart just lept inside of my chest when I saw these words!!!
Father God, We pray that you hand would be upon all of the people who have to sign off on Eliana's case...we pray that YOU would take this situation in your loving arms and move it along quickly. I thank you for the heart that you have given Chris and Lindsey...I thank you for the parents they all ready are and the kind of parents you are molding them to be when they finally have Eliana in their arms. Thank you for their heart for you and for your people. AMEN!!!
I love you both and am rejoicing with you right now!!!

Our Ethiopian Journey... said...

That is Great! I have no idea what that means, as I am adopting from Ethiopia not Guatemala, but it sounds like a big step in the process :) I love following your blog and you guys are in my prayers!

Adoption is hard - but you are a pro at that part now;)

The great and wonderful thing about your adoption is that you are believers. You KNOW where your strenthg lies - you know who your Lord and saviour is and you can rest in that. Yes - you will have hard days and tears and the wait is ROUGH - but how blessed are BOTH of your girls to have parents fighting not only to bring them home - but warring for them in prayer as well.

I am SO proud of you both and so thankful to be able to call you my brothers and sisters in Christ -
I hope to meet you and your family one day and celebrte with you:)

Love to you all and on the days that are tough - KNOW you have so many people thinking of you and praying for you and walking it all out with you :)

Cheering you along from the sidelines;)

So I don't understand the nuances of Guatemalan adoptions, but judging by everyone's response, this was a huge milestone! So, hooray! And thanks for stopping by our blog. One of our families has a daughter from Guatemala and is adopting from Ethiopia now... But our Blog Union isn't exclusive to Ethiopia, if you guys want to come... You're more than welcome!
