And we finally exited IBESR (nicknamed “the black hole” by frustrated adopting families).
This is a big deal.
We entered IBESR December 13th, 2013. More than 3 years later, we are OUT.
IBESR is typically the longest/most unpredictable portion of the Haitian adoption process (I hope I am not jinxing our file by writing this).
I know that everyone’s next question is when can we bring him home. Our answer remains the same: we don’t know.
We have three final phases: 1. Haitian courts to get an adoption decree 2. Passports 3. Visa
We are praying for a 2017 homecoming.
I am headed to Haiti March 9th to visit my boo – this progress could not have come at a better time. I had some seriously soul crushing moments last week where I thought the weight was going to break me (I am typically not dramatic, but it was a dark week).
We are so thankful to be moving forward-thanks for continued prayers!
