I talked with our social worker about the little rumor that Scottius and I had heard about a month ago. For the first 6 months of 2007, no one will be able to adopt babies (internationally) from South Korea so that South Koreans will have a chance to adopt these babies. After the 6 months are up then any of us on lists for adopting these sweet little ones will be able to adopt them!
Now, we are still not on the actual list but are still on hold until God gives us further notice to push ahead! We heard from one of the ministries who will help us with fundraising but will not be able to provide a grant for us (They do not have money at this time.) However, we know of more ministries and organizations who provide grants so we will pursue on!
Remember the fingerprinting we had to do about 5 weeks ago? Well, Scottius has to have his fingerprints redone because his didn't show up good enough. At that time, we will then just have to have a little interview with the immigration officer, and the fingerprinting will be complete. We all feel pretty certain that his fingerprints will not go through again so the immigration officer I talked to from another city said that she would set this up for us. She was very kind and gracious, and we really appreciate her help. Otherwise we would have to go to an entirely different city miles away.
Obstacles, obstacles, obstacles only make us more determined! It will all work out in the end, and we will get just the little boy that God wants us to have! Now in the next post, I will have to have Scottius' help to set up a little voting thing so we can see "which" name you think is best for our new baby! Be on the lookout for it! Oh, also be on the lookout for our new yahoo website called Lucy's Creations!
