Haiti Bound

mhaitiToday our adoption file should be headed down to Haiti! Yahoo! We have been working so hard to get to this point. It took much much longer than expected. Nevertheless, here we are! It will feel so good to have our file on Haitian soil.

Once our file is in Haiti it will be legalized and then deposited into IBESR. IBESR stands for “Institut du Bien-Etre Social et de Recherches.” Basically it is the children’s services in Haiti. IBESR will be the ones to approve our file, do and approve our children’s files and then match us with our kids.

IBESR is sometimes called the black hole. Some people get stuck in IBESR for many years for this reason or another. Its not super organized but with the lack of personnel and tools available to them they are doing their very very best. They are working super hard to become more organized and to follow the many rules and red tape that they must follow. We hope to be deposited into IBESR within the next few weeks and then we will hopefully have a file number.

We are so very excited to finally be at this stage in the adoption. We will likely be at this whole thing another 2-3 years. A huge part of that depends on how quickly we can be matched with our children. We have been told that because of our very specific age requirements it may take a very very long time. But we are trusting God that this will all happen in his timeline. Our hopes and desires are that it is quick… but whatever it takes to get to our children… we are ready for it. Ready for the long haul! =)

Please keep praying for us! This is a real rollercoaster of a journey! Please also be praying for us financially. We still need to raise about $35,000. We will have to pay almost all of this around the time of the referral… which could be in 9 months, 18 months or more. But its a little scary to think of needing that much money in 9 months time. But as God has taken us through this thus far he has not failed us! I know that in His timing it will all come together! We have a few fundraising ideas up our sleeves. Hopefully we can get them into motion soon. Its very time/energy consuming doing all of this fundraising and adoption paperwork. Pray for perseverance! =)

Thank you for walking with us through this journey! We can not do it alone! We appreciate each and everyone of you!

Have a wonderful day!
