This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Some more information

In today's mail, we found this letter from the US Embassy in San Salvador. Though short and obviously standardized, it contains some important information.

1. The embassy is on our side and works hard for adoption cases.

2. The wait for our child to come home may be longer than we had first thought (1-2 years, according to the embassy)

3. We now have contact information for more people who may be able to answer questions from different perspectives and keep us informed when we need information.

The thought of a longer wait jarred me for a while, but James helped me realize that we will wait joyfully for as long as it takes to bring our child home. God has our child chosen for us and will bring him or her home when the time is right. I'm thankful for this news that helps us prepare ourselves better.
