I spent most of the day checking e-mail, waiting for the phone to ring, praying, and trying not to cry. Late this afternoon, I received a phone call from our social worker. She told me that what I had read was true. Rwanda is working to become a Hague accredited country. This is really a good thing for the country and for future adoptions. However, they are suspending acceptance of new dossiers right now, which does not look good for us or other families in the paperwork process of adopting from Rwanda.
We don't know how long the country will be closed, no one knows yet. We should hear something around August 31st.
For now all we can do is pray. Please join us in praying for the families affected by this change. Pray for the precious children of Rwanda who will have to wait even longer to be placed in families.
We know that this is not a surprise to God. He is in control and I am resting in the promise that He can turn all things good.
