Six Weeks

It's been six weeks since our referral and still no word on our I600 being filed. I'd be lying if I said that the current circumstances in Vietnam didn't add to my anxiety. It seems like things are getting more and more scary. There are news articles stating that Vietnam has said they will be ending adoptions July 1 in response to our government's press release last Friday. As of right now this is not official and we are waiting to hear more from our adoption agency. My heart breaks for all of the families--and especially the orphaned children-- whose futures are currently in limbo. It is a hard place to be, but we have to believe that God is in control.

These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.
--1 Peter 1:7 (NLT)
