The Good News and the Bad News

This is an adoption update. I know it has been a while and it will probably be a while again before we have another. The Good News... 1. We had all the paperwork into the Philippines. The government agency (ICAB) that reviews it has done so. 2. The US government has fingerprinted us and approved our request in theory to adopt again. 3. I have found easier to be patient than I thought it would be. 4. The boys are excited about having a new sibling or two and are okay with it taking awhile. 5. ICAB has only requested one additional thing and we have been told by the caseworker that they generally make all their requests at once. The Bad News.. The one request made was to ask Perry to loss 10% of his body weight approximately 24 pounds and have some tests done. The Tests are not a big deal and we figure that they will all come back fine however the 24lbs are going to take awhile. The agency is going to advocate for us but we will see. This could put our case on hold until he reaches that goal. So pray that Perry can start losing the weight quickly and healthily. Pray that ICAB will show mercy and not hold our case until all the weight is lost. So there it is.

Wow! What a request/stipulation to put on someone. Praying for God's hand to be evident in all of this. I love seeing your family grow and I look forward to seeing who God places in your lives next. Thanks for all the updates.

What a weird request! I'm sorry... I know this has to be frustrating.
