The latest

We just found out that Samuel can pull up to a standing position, crawl properly, and stand with help. He is growing and we are still here, watching the whole thing from the sidelines...Soon come!

Here's the latest...
Samuel is doing ok. We just received a report that said that he is "normal" and that he has grown a little (however not nearly enough). He needs mommy and daddy and a BigMac :)
Also, the lawyer in Nepal thought that we were number 25-30 in line for approval, which means another two months! But, he wasn't sure about our number, and last month they did 50 cases because of their holiday. They say that maybe our holiday season might speed things up as well, but who knows. So...great! We know nothing more than we did yesterday save that Sammy is ok, which is great, of course. Happy Thanksgiving!

Ministry member found

Good news!
The Nepal minsitry has hired another member to work on the adoption cases, thus they will start meeting (and proceesing cases) this Sunday! Fantastic!

Again, sitting up without help. Wondering about the buddha posture though...need to look into that one...:) Posted by Picasa
Here is the latest picture of Samuel. He is sitting up! Though he looks ok, he is getting old too quickly. And he is obviously unhappy about our delay. We know, we know. Posted by Picasa

Sammy is sitting up!

Here are the latest pictures of Samuel. He looks older...too old...and the wait is not getting any easier, though we know the timing is perfect. Just wish it was soon. The current news is that there is a delay on the process. A guy got promoted and until they fill his spot, they can't do anything. This may take 2-3 weeks or longer. We pray that the Lord has "shorter" in mind.

Holding pattern

Dera friends,
Finally some news from Nepal...it is not good news. The ministry board that meets and approves the adoption cases just had a member get promoted, and thus they can't meet until they fill that slot. This means a delay of two to three weeks, they think, until they meet again. Great...
There are also some new rules on the way to be approved, but our case should be exempt from those, at least that's what we're being told.
So again...we are waiting and waiting. Knowing the God's timing is perfect is sometimes hard to live. But what els can we do, trust ourselves?

In love,
the Kjernalds
