Praise God this week we received the kids new birth certificates! We are so blessed, excited and there is a lot of smiling!
We are waiting on the final 3 documents need to begin the visa process. Please pray with me that this is the week we receive them.
Time is short and we need this process to begin now. Together we can move this mountain!
As of today I continue to wait on important and necessary paperwork to move forward in the immigrate visa process. Time is short and all paperwork needs to be in by next Friday.
We are still unsure of all that needs to happen once the paperwork is sent in or a time frame needed to receive visas. Pray for me that peace would flood my heart, mind and soul, firmly trusting Jesus no matter what the situation looks like.
Thank you all so much for standing with me and holding up my arms in prayer and giving me peace of knowing that I am not alone in this struggle.
Thank you and God bless you!
Matthew 17:20 Says, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say, "Mountain Move" and it will move. "
I had a phone consultation with an immigration lawyer this week and found out that we have another big mountain standing in the way of my kids immigration visas. Each country has its own laws, age limit, and quantification. Some of our hurdles in Mozambique were equivalent to US standards and others were not.
I am not going to write specifics or the big barriers I am now facing because Enia may read this and I don't want discouragement to enter her heart, I want a mustard seed of faith to move this mountain.
Going forward could result in a positive or negative outcome. The lawyer was not without hope just gave little hope. Going forward with this process and the cost are difficult knowing there is not a certainty. Giving up is not my nature, not what I want ......I must try.
I always need your prayers as what I do here in Mozambique is hard and overwhelming at times. This is harder because it's my kids, 2 beautiful amazing children.
Please pray with me and let's watch God move these mountains.
Keep praying! The name change process is still has not been completed.bI will try again tomorrow. Also, I have a phone consult with a US Immigration lawyer on Thursday. This will give us clear direction and many answers to questions. Blessings and thanks for your prayers!
No one was aware that in order the change the kids name, which has to be done before new birth certificates, ID's or passports can be issued, was another court process. We have completed the first part which took over a week and now its in the judges hands for a week waiting on her signature. So we are in the waiting phase again.
We are praying we receive all these documents by Tuesday. We will then start moving forward for visas!
Once I had official adoption papers, changing the kids names was next. Unaware that was a new process that has now been a 3 week wait. The kids advocate took all my personal information and permission was granted but after he signed it was sent to the court for the judge to sign, and we are still waiting.
Once that is complete my kids names, birth certificates and all ID's will read:
ENIA RENÉE RAE WHEELER
PETER CHRISTOPHER WHEELER
So we are back in the waiting game!
Kids are on school break, sleeping late, and visiting grandma each day playing with cousins.
Tonight we had pizza for dinner a big treat!!! (Tuesday's is buy one get one free day)
