Today we received an update that our file was submitted to PGN on Thursday, September 6th!!!! This is *awesome* news! Now we must pray that we get OUT in 8 weeks or less. Even nine weeks would be fine. With all that is going on in Guatemala, we continue to pray that we are able to bring Gabriel home by Christmas. You might hear of a lot of turmoil with the upcoming elections and possible implementation of the Hague Treaty, but we put our faith in God and know that He will not let us down. Greg and I wait to receive updates on all Guatemala situations from our agency because they have our best interest in mind and a lot of information you hear out there only suits to scare you. If you are the praying kind, we ask for your prayers during our stay in PGN. This is truly the last hurdle before we can bring little G home.
We have been told to expect a previo during our stay in PGN. A previo is when a reviewer requests more information or doesn't approve of a particular document and wants a do-over. During this time, you are kicked out from PGN while you wait for the file/document to be rectified. This basically adds more time onto your stay at PGN. So we pray for a previo-free stay in PGN. We also call them whammies. So no whammy, no whammy, no whammy!
Thank you to all our blog readers. We greatly appreciate you all keeping us in your thoughts and prayers. I truly believe deep in my heart that all our prayers will bring little Gabriel home.
