- This week we signed a new Power-of-Attorney adding the newest member of our adoption team, bringing the number of people who can sign for us up to four. Papers are already printed [in French and English], notarized, scanned, and sent to the USA electronically.
- Originals will either be mailed to the USA or delivered to the creche soon.
- Thankful for the staff working in two countries to bring F home.
- Thankful for people in numerous countries praying for F and our adoption.
- The staff continue to work on F's case in two ways:
- a different agency that was asked for similar paperwork submitted something that "apparently was accepted by IBESR". So this method will be tried in F's case this month. Praying it works.
- Thankful for sharing of information while working together to bring children home as well as keeping Haitian families together.
- meanwhile they continue to work on the paper that was requested to have it ready for courts when they reconvene in October.
- Better understanding on our I-600 visa. The November expiration date that had us wondering about needing to file for a new type of visa was for our I-600a. Last May, after meeting F we filed an I-600 which we now understand will not expire. So as long as we continue to let the USCIS know that the case is active we can submit the requested documents when they become available once we move forward after exiting IBESR. PRAISE THE LORD!!
- We hear that F continues to do well despite the long wait. His foster aunt remains impressed when they talk about the waiting on how well he can express his feelings, even the hard ones.

No, we haven't moved a step forward, but we have some good news anyway.
