Slow Motion

Okay, I feel like my world is going in slow motion. So we have received the decree and the birth certificates now we are awaiting the other papers needed to file our I600. They are on their way from Ghana through the mail and should be here within 10 days. Of course if I were still in Ghana I could go today and file, but now I'm waiting for the papers to arrive here. GRRRR!!! So frustrating. Everything seems so urgent but goes sooooo slowly. My plan is to file our I600 here as soon as the papers arrive, and then head for Ghana as soon we receive confirmation that our I600 has been granted.
Mark is still sick. He went to the doctors yesterday (day 17 of coughing) and is now on antibiotics. Maggie is finally doing better, but still has a mild cough so we are watching her. So realistically I know that coming home was the best decision, but I still think about it and toggle it through my mind.
I guess that's why God keeps having to teach me to trust Him. I often try to figure things out on my own all the while knowing that He is in control and will take care of everything in His timing.
Waiting patiently at my mailbox,

Sometimes it's so hard to wait on God's timing even when we know He has it all worked out. Praying things are moving forward again soon.

Lanae, I hate this long wait for you! Your family needs to be ALL together! I'm trying to think what "papers" you could be waiting for from Ghana if it's not the birth certificate or adoption decree. Social Welfare report? Court affidavit by biological family? If you have photocopies you can submit them to USCIS rather than originals.

I get things from Ghana in 4-5 business days using DHL.

Let me know if I can help in any way.
