Adoption News!!!

I received a very special email last night.  IBESR (Haitian Social Services) received a list of new dispensations yesterday and Christian is on it!!  This means that the President  whoever signs the presidents papers, signed our Dispensation.  We've been granted permission to adopt Christian Willy though Haitian law says you cannot adopt if you have Biological Children.  Dispensations are granted for this all the time, but it is a LONG process.  We've been waiting for this since September!! 

What's next?  All Dispensations must be printed in Le Moniteur, the Haitian Legal Journal.  Once it is printed in Le Moniteur, we should be given permission to exit IBESR and enter the Parquet Court process.  If you are really into details- each step is given here.  We still have a ways to go in bringing Christian home, but we've made progress.  Dispensation seems to take the longest, so Lord willing we'll start moving through the next steps (though we know that typically nothing moves quickly in Haiti;)

Praising God and anxious for the go ahead to attend Parquet court, because that requires a little visit to Haiti and a few more cuddles with my boy;)

Please keep praying...God can move mountains;)


  1. Didn't I just tell Ava you were next!!! (the Jordans just brought home Nurleen last week and they were in the adoption process for 3 years)
    Praise God! Will continue to pray that these next steps move quickly and as efficiently as possible and that the impending move does not complicate things!

  2. So thankful for the way He moves! Praying, praying, praying for this next stage!!!

  5. AWESOME news! Forward progress makes the heart happy! God is good and He does all things!
