Well this is wild. We got word today as we confirmed all the documents we needed to send with our I-600, that US immigration has a new person in the Detroit office and has been taking longer than normal with I-600 processing. What does this mean? Well, the I-600 is what Haiti needs to complete what […]
So, What’s Next?
No doubt about it: job loss affects every aspect of your life whether you are an athletic or the family. Ranging from financial to social to physical to emotional. A job loss hurts! You really liked the people you worked with and will miss them. It’s very lonely being by your self all day. Your job was a way to show the world your independence and the ability to take care of yourself and family. My job was my future, so, what’s next?
We’ve just been on the GLA website and saw an encouraging update. Apparently there was a meeting last Thursday (4/3) that included the Minister of the Interior, the Director of Immigration, and all the orphanage directors in the country. It is the MoI that approves passports, and they have been taking a very long time […]
You might remember that in our post “We’re In Passports! 03/28/08” that we mentioned the I-600 that we have to fill out while we’re waiting for the passport papers to be processed. Well, a group of documents has to accompany it, and we got those documents today so we’ll be submitting the I-600 in the […]
Since so many are walking this journey with us, we thought you might like to see where Jude actually lives right now. God’s Littlest Angels is a mission orphanage in Haiti, started by John and Dixie Bickel as a ministry to the people of Haiti. They were serving in Haiti at a hospital and were […]
All – we just got word that GLA applied for Jude’s passport today! Praise God for His goodness! We are very excited. The two-week process for the legalization signature took two and a half weeks for us. It is what it is, and we are not into the next step. In the meantime, baby keeps […]
We have been on the adoption journey since August, 2006, when we first contacted Bethany Christian Services. Along the way, although we’ve had our “weak moments”, by-and-large we’ve trusted God for His timing. In the last year, we’ve heard all sorts of comments – from hostile to hilarious – from skin color to child-rearing – […]
Recently, one of our pastors asked us to study Isaiah 40 together as a couple. We were struck by verse eleven and its relevance to our lives right now: “Like a shepherd He will tend His flock, In His arm He will gather the lambs and carry them in His bosom; He will gently lead […]
Today we received a precious new update from GLA about Jude. First, they expect his paperwork to be out of legalization any day now, and they’ll be able to apply for his passport at that point. So, this month’s update featured the passport photo they took of him. As you can see, it’s not just […]
It has come to our attention that our last post (in combination with the new ‘Donate’ button) was not very clear, so we’d like to share with you some details regarding the request for help that was part of that post. Please note that this isn’t meant to illicit sympathy; we just want to be […]
We just got word that Jude’s paperwork moved into legalization on Friday! This is the last step needed before the application for his passport is filed. Legalization generally takes two weeks, so he should be in passports (with the office of the Minister of the Interior) by the end of March. Join us in praise […]
