Some fabulous news from Nate!


Edwin

Edwin, the oldest boy at the orphanage where my son Nate works turned 16 on August first. As of that date, he would be unadoptable, according to Guatemalan law. So of course, the courts were dragging their heels, hoping for bribe money. In late July we were all still hoping and praying that Edwin's paperwork would be done on time, and I've been frantic for news. Can you imagine? There's a family here in the States with hearts so big that they are adopting a SIXTEEN YEAR OLD!!!

Well, Nate finally was able to call this afternoon, and he told me that as of July 31, Edwin's paperwork was finished! Joyous day!!

I'll have another good story for you tomorrow, as soon as I get their pictures online :-)
