Week #10

Today begins week #10 of waiting for Pre-approval from the American Embassy. I pray it comes this week. The sooner we receive this email from them, the sooner we can enter PGN, the final stage in the adoption aside from "pink". It's all a waiting game. Pink is the notification you receive from the Embassy letting you know that you can come down to Guatemala to pick up your baby and go home. But we first have to get into PGN to even worry about getting pink. For those wondering, the stay in PGN can be as short as 7 weeks or as long as indefinite. We are praying for a short two month or so stay in PGN. Less would be ideal.
Please join me in prayer this week that we receive Pre-approval.

I'm hoping G's 3 month mark will be the finishing of your waiting time! You will be in my prayers. I wish nothing but this to go very smoothly for you guys!

We pray and hope, cross our fingers, and pray some more, that you both welcome Gabriel into your home as quickly as possible -- I am so very excited for you and proud to have you both as my friends! I know the waiting for Gabriel is difficult and arduous, but the reward is great, so stay strong!

Love - Nat and Jason
