Our willingness to wait reveals the value we place on what we are waiting for.

Hi everyone, Ben here. It’s been a long ride for us and we appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers. We have had a lot of people asking about our son and the adoption, wondering when we will be able to travel to Guinea to get him. To be honest, it’s hard for us to talk about right now because we still don’t have any clear answers. We originally thought we would be traveling in April or May, but those months came and went with no new updates. It’s a long story, but the short version is that our adoption agency lost their accreditation to no fault of their own. Our government continues to make international adoption more and more difficult for families. On the other side of things, there are some other challenges we have been faced with in Guinea and their government. We have been transferred to a new adoption agency and they have been wonderful to work with. However, there are quite a few legal matters and even some things that are not fully understood, that are putting a hold on our adoption. We still do not have a time frame of any kind. We could travel as early as September, but it could be much longer. We really have no idea. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. This process is starting to take its toll on us emotionally, but we are encouraged by the love and support of all of our friends, and we know God will take care of our son while we are still waiting to meet him. We have faith, and trust in God’s plan for our lives and for his. We love you all.
