We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

Barely Breathing

We have received a update from our POA that the referrals have been approved by the Ministry's office and they are working on getting the paperwork in order. There may be signatures yet to complete and things that need to be scanned into the computer to be sent. Since there are 12 families going through this process that is alot of paperwork to manage. We were told that we will receive our referral via email directly from the Ministry's office and that it should be coming very soon. So of course my heart skipped a beat that it could be tommorrow but it very well may not be untill next week. The last time we were given a "heads up" from our POA that our approval letter would be coming straight to us from the Ministry's office we received the precious letter two days later. This is now officially leaving me feeling like I can barely breath so keep praying and thinking of us. That we will infact receive our referral and all the pieces will fall into place so that we can pass court before they close for the December break.


  1. Great news! If you don't mind, I'd love some information about your experience going the independent vs. agency route. My e-mail is kelly at digitalpembroke dot com if you don't mind "talking" about your experience. I am particularly interested in learning about how to begin the independent route. Do you hire the POA right out of the box or get dossier in order first. Thanks for your time.

  2. Hmm, could you forward that email to me as well? My husband have decided to adopt from Rwanda and have been encouraged to go independently. I'm so excited to begin the process, but feel like I'm stuck in research mode. If you don't mind, my email is lkapiloff at gmail dot com. I'm "stalking" your blog and will be so thrilled for you when you finally get THE news.
