We're Out of IBESR!

If leaving for China in two days wasn't enough good news, we just found out that our paperwork for Haiti is finally out of IBESR! (For those of you who speak Creole, that stands for Institut du Bien Etre Social et de Recherches which is basically Haitian Social Services). Whatever you want to call it, this is a HUGE step in the adoption process in Haiti. We are now in Parquet, which is Civil Court, step three of six! IBESR can take a year or more, and we made it out in 5 months, so we are very thankful!



Lord willing, by this time next year we will be leaving to bring Patricia and Philippe home!

Oh my goodness! I've been praying about your upcoming trip, and I prayed for y'all to get out of IBESR soon, but honestly I never expected an affirmative answer in a MILLION years with the way things have been (not) moving in that office lately.... Praise God!!!!

I am doing something with my arms and legs. Not sure what it is. Oh wait- it is dancing! Okay, I'll stop before I embarrass the boys too much.

Dawn- I sent you an email a few weeks back, but I am not sure if I have the most current email for you... can you let me know? My email is the same.
