Coming Home….

We are flying home today!!!  I can hardly believe it, I am so excited!

We won’t actually get home until Tuesday afternoon – it will be a long 2 days of flying.  :)

I will send an update as soon as I can when I get home!

Oh my…

I heard today that a family with a case like ours is supposed to get their visa on Monday!  We have got to be close…please pray with us that this week is the week Mayer gets a visa and can COME HOME!

What a good day.

We found out this morning that our orphan investigation is really, truly, definitely  complete! What a relief!

We also found out that our file may not have to go to Nairobi after all and may be able to be processed at the Embassy in Kampala. This will save a LOT of time.  I’m really praying this happens and maybe (just maybe) we’ll hear something next week about a visa???

We’ve never been this close to the end….it’s coming!

I take that back…(I think)

So apparently, someone doesn’t know what they are talking about.

We’ve heard two different things from the US Embassy this past week. The orphan investigation is complete and your file is in Nairobi and your orphan investigation is NOT complete and your file is still in Kampala. Of course, finding out the truth isn’t easy and we’ve once again not been able to talk to anyone who knows anything about our file at the US Embassy. We’re pretty sure that our file is still in Kampala though. Our lawyers favorite expression lately seems to be “This is madness!” and we certainly agree….

It looks like our orphan investigation is FINALLY complete. The Embassy said our file was to be sent to Nairobi this evening for processing of the visa. Please pray this happens quickly and without any problems.

Here is a video of some of the kids at the RUHU orphanage singing and dancing. Don’t they tug at your heart?
