Well the good news is we were not declined in the OPS meeting last week; however, there was not an approval granted either. They have not completed reviewing our file so we must wait until the next meeting. When will that be? Who knows, Igor at Homecoming Adoptions said these are bureaucratic delays. God is so in the midst of all this, and we are completely yielded to His plan and timing. We found out today that Homecoming Adoptions is representing 17 other families adopting from El Salvador. We ask you all as you are praying for our family and Maggie that you also lift these other families up to the Lord. As much as we wanted to hear everything was approved and the search for her was beginning, we will not be discouraged by this news. We must press on toward the goal set before us in prayer and praise for what He has already done. God is a work, and we will bring Maggie home to the place God destined her to be when she was being formed in her mother's womb. Please continue to pray for us, acknowledging everything He has done and anticipating everything He will do. Blessings to you all!!!!

We received our Immigration Approval form yesterday!!!! We are having it notarized and mailing it out today. Igor at our agency will forward it to El Salavador. He said today on the phone that the OPS office in El Salvador was supposed to meet real soon and OUR PAPERWORK WAS IN THIS GROUP!!!!! So now we pray that everything was done correctly. Out of this meeting we will either get an approval for the agency to make a referral or we will get notified of something was not done correctly and must be done again. So of course we want the approval; however, the Lord is reminding me even as I write this that HIS PLAN will prevail. Please join us in prayer that HIS WILL be done, and the decision from this meeting will come quickly so we can move on to the next step. WE ARE SO EXCITED!!! We also feel God's favor on us in that we are not having to wait a long time in between the steps of the process. Thank you, thank you , thank you, for joining us in prayer and rejoicing with us. Maggie Mae is truly a very blessed little girl.
"Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth? He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap (trash); he seats them with princes with the princes of their people." Psalm 113:5-8. There is no one like Him; therefore, there is no way I could possibly explain all that He is doing in our hearts right now. WE BLESS YOU LORD AND WE ARE DESPERATELY SEEKING YOU!!!!!!
