The greatest experience, the one which shakes a soul with hopes and fears, the results of which are never ending, and incidentally, the one which pays the biggest dividends, is to be found in the adoption of children.

Birth Mom Search Results Are In...

...And it was just as we were fearing............or rather than fearing, I should say suspecting. The cedula (ID card in Guatemala) is a fake. Our birth mother's picture is on someone else's ID. We know what our birth mother looks like and we know nothing beyond that. Talk about a road block. I'm waiting to hear from our dear friend down there to know where we go from here.
We know we're looking for a small woman with black hair and dark eyes. Hmmm, anyone care to take that search Guatemala?

Yes, it does seem like doors are slamming in our face at every turn. And yes, it would be very easy to give up but it's not happening! I'm more determined than ever to find a way forward for this adoption. I have faith and I believe our little girl is coming home.

Mt 17:20 ..."I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

I admire your strength and courage! Please know that we still pray for mountains to be moved in your case!!

I asked my Bible study to pray for you, your family and Nola tonight. Please let me know if there is anything I could do (write letters to someone in United States?) to help with your case and others in the same situation.

The prayers are much needed and much appreciated. Right now, we're waiting to see what kind of impact Senator Landreiu's visit had. If there is a letter writing campaign or a "phone your senator" campaign I'll post here on the blog.

Such a frustrating and heartbreaking process; your strength is relentless and I know you'll keep pushing forward to get your little girl. I just feel angry right now because no one has come forward for this little girl...why are they keeping her from her loving mommy in the USA?
