Just wanted to provide a quick update on where we are at with the process. We received some additional good news this past week from our agency. Other families who received a referral as recently a month ago have been submitted to the court in Korea! This is extremely good news for them, of course, but also for us as it looks like things are moving again. We continue to hold out hope that we will be able to travel by the end of the year. Will you join us in praying that we will be able to travel and bring our boy home by the end of the year?

Also, we received some encouraging news about the recent events in country. It seems that this type of provocation happens on an almost annual basis. It is more intense this year because of new leaders on both sides, but no one feels in immediate danger. Having worked in international humanitarian efforts in the past, it is when the locals feel threatened that we need to start to worry. Honestly, we still hope and pray, but I have had a strong sense of calm over the past few days. Still, we would love it if you would join us in prayer!

Finally, we just sent off the paperwork for the next step of this process. We need approval from the US government and then the other government before we can receive a formal referral. It is at that point, we can send a small gift and some pictures. Then he will know what we have known – that he is part of our family.  Will you pray with us that we will have all this paperwork done and be able to have a formal referral by July?

Thanks again for all your prayers and support! It means so much that our little guy is loved even before you meet him!
