This roller coaster ride is exhausting me
Someone once told me that, "the only thing that is certain in International Adoptions is that nothing is certain." How true, how true! We got word today that the US consulate in Guangzhou started requiring a different format for appointment requests. Our agency didn't know about this request, so ours was sent back. A lot of other agency's were also. So, our travel guy had to resubmit our request. He doesn't work on Tuesdays, so it wasn't sent until today. Now, the consulate usually takes 24-48 hours to confirm appointments. That would put us at Friday. If we can get tickets, we can still go on Thurs. Any later than Friday, and we can not go until November. So, once again, praying friends, we ask you to approach the Lord on our behalf. He's taken us this far, over many obstacles. We know He can handle this. None of this takes Him by surprise. Tonight, I'm clinging to this verse: Philippians 4:6 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. " Amen and amen!!
