Let the Process Begin

We are so happy to finally post this! We just got an email from our orphanage director last night that let us know we are FINALLY entered into IBESR (Haitian Social Services) which is the first big step on the Haitian end of this process. YEAHHHHHH!!!! Our 1-2 year wait has officially now begun!

Please continue to pray for our paperwork to miraculously continue on through all the next steps in a timely fashion and we would be able to bring Nora home closer to the year end of that wait time than the 2 year end. We believe God wants her in our arms, so we are praying for that to be so as quickly as He can make it happen.

THANK YOU to all who have been praying for us so far in this process--we are blessed and excited to be moving forward once again!


  1. So EXCITED to see this! I have been keeping up with your blog and have your family covered in prayer.

    He began a good work and will be Faithful to complete it...hang in there!

  2. Whew! So glad that part is done... now let's hope that new IBESR director makes good on her hopes to have dossiers clear in 2 months. That would be amazing!

  3. I just came across your blog this afternoon: we, too, are in the process of adopting a little girl from Haiti, whom we are naming Norah!! Just found out last week that our dossier is in IBESR as well. :)

  4. Wow, Shelley! That's amazing! We'll have to keep track of our Nora/Norah's processes! Are you on facebook? If so, find me there and we'll stay in touch. Blessings to you on your journey!
