We just heard from our adoption agency that Kaden is "paper ready" meaning that all his documents are ready to be submitted to court at any time. However, the local government has Makyra's paperwork and at this time is unwilling to release these documents to our adoption agency. Sadly, they cannot be our children until these documents are released and the case is submitted to court.
But we believe in the power of the prayers of the righteous and a God who holds the hearts of the rulers in his hands. James 5:16 says, "The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working." To those of you who know the Lord, we ask that you would pray that God would turn the hearts of the local authorities and that they would release Makyra's papers immediately, He is our only hope.
"For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. He only is my rock and my fortress; I shall not be shaken" -Psalm 62:5-6
