A brief update

We have a little bit of news about Jonathan's adoption, so I want to give everyone and update and ask for more prayer. Many of the pieces have come together since our last update. We did (finally) get the new version of our home study and send that on to USCIS. Our agency had their ability to notarize and authenicate documents reinstated, so we do not have to go to Columbus or mail things to D.C. We have managed to recollect most of our documents (even though they didn't have to be notarized, most of them were considered "expired" from China's perspective since the process is taking so long). And God has provided all of the money that we need for this step. We recieved a very generous donation and a grant, and that covers the entire fee required to submit our dossier, plus a littl bit left over for our next step. We are thanking and praising God for all of these things.

But there are still a few huge obstacles in our way, and we need your prayers as we work to overcome these. We still need three documents in order to submit our dossier, and we need them very soon. The first is our immigration approval. We have submitted everything for that and are just waiting for USCIS. The second is Greg's birth certificate. Greg's father is picking that up for us tomorrow and will send it to us. The third is the letter from my doctor. No matter how hard we try, we do not seem to be able to get this letter. I don't understand why this is so difficult right now, but we have to have this letter. Please join us in praying that we will get this in time to get our documents to China. 

Sometimes this seems impossible to us, but we know that all things are possible with God. We are praying that He will bring our son home to us.
