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!
