Adoption update

It's been a few weeks since we posted our last adoption update... there's really no new news to share right now. Our dossier is now in week 10 of translation in Kazakhstan - we originally expected to only spend 8 weeks in translation but apparently a few of World Partners' dossiers are taking longer than usual and we just happen to be one of them. We got a really nice email yesterday from our coordinator that reassured us that nothing is wrong with our dossier, that this shouldn't affect our overall timeline very much, and that they're sorry for the delay.

So for now, we just wait (which is so easy since I'm such a patient person). I suppose the "just wait" isn't the right way to describe it - we're discovering more every day that waiting is anything but a passive process and instead we are "waiting in hope". My current memory verse is Psalm 33:20-22:
We wait in hope for the Lord;
   he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice,
   for we trust in his holy name.
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord,
   even as we put our hope in you.

Teacher Ben taught us Duck Duck Goose and Red Light, Green Light in Russian lessons on Monday - we just may be fluent by the time we travel :)

Hi, Jamie.

I have been checking in on you from time to time. We are also WPA clients (sent dossier in last week of November). We were in translation about 8 weeks. It felt like forever. It felt like forever to get through the Consulate. But, The day will come when your dossier is in country. They really do know how to get you there. People told me this a lot over the past few months and they were right! Hang in there!
