The joys of international adoption.... NOT!

I am asking for your prayers! The passport system in Bulgaria is a mess! The birthcertificates office is not getting things done on time! If these two things do not time out my travel plans are TOAST! To be honest, to be within 2 weeks if holding my precious girls again, and then have things fall apart and be delayed... It's going to kill me :(!

God can do this! I am praying He doesn't want to see me grow anymore in the waiting process! I am praying for a miracle of a perfectly timed out end to this journey! I am begging God to let this work! I don't want to know how much I have left in me, I just want to bring my girls home!

Yana is already 7! Tavi is 4 1/2! We have been on this journey for 16 months! Please God, they need to come home! I need them home!!!


  1. Praying!

    I'm SURE it will all work out!

    You have been waiting SO long...I just KNOW it will be soon now...

    Keep the faith :)

  2. KELLY!!!!!!!! I absolutely HATE THIS!!! BUT, if I had to do it over, I WOULD! They are worth it, and we've held them, and they're OURS!! Praying God moves mountains on your behalf!

  3. You have got to be kidding me..I am shaking my head!!! When people ask me about adoption one of the things that I tell them is that it is not for the weak!!! You will hold them again very soon! You and your faith is strong!!!

  4. Words of wisdome from Dory of Finding Nemo "♫just keep swimming, just keep swimming♪"
    It'll be will!:D

  5. I pray all has resolved itself by now. If not, can you call the American Consulate in Bulgaria and ask them to assist you in some way? Can you call the Bulgaria Civil Affairs office and ask for special attention based on your confirmed travel dates. For us it was the miracle of God nudging me to make one phone call, otherwise we would still be waiting. I'm praying for your family. My heart is heavy for you, but I know ultimately God plans are perfect!

  6. I am so sorry for this frustration.

  7. You have been on my mind and heart. I know how frustrating this can be and you are so weary. Please know you have friends who are praying for you and uplifting you during this time. It seems at the end things seem to get even more difficult for no reason. Praying for peace for you and that you will soon be holding your darling daughters. Hugs to you. Rhonda
