I'm sure after my brief mention of potential June 1st news some of you have been wondering what, if anything transpired. The situation was this: apparently our paperwork has a stamp on it saying that it will be held for one year starting June 1, 2007. Our lawyer had seen this and was looking forward to that deadline. She went in on June 2, as June 1 was a Sunday, and asked for the paperwork to be released. When they refused she threatened to take legal action and was told that it will do no good as there is currently no legal system in place.
This most recent disappointment has been a tough blow for us as now our only hope is that Parliament, who we heard didn't pass any laws at all last year, will get together and pass this law saying that we only have to be 30 instead of 35, which is why the paperwork is currently stuck. We don't have much hope that this will happen, at least anytime soon, but are not quite sure what to do next. Not only is it difficult to wait for the joys of parenting this sweet child, but it's doubly hard knowing the condition that Haiti is currently in and worrying about her well being there.
Please continue to pray for her, for Haiti, for us, and for all other potential adoptive parents who are out there waiting.
To end on a lighter note, Sean and I just celebrated our six year wedding anniversary and the week before that went on an eventful trip to Yellowstone with my family. We are grateful every day that we are so blessed and happy in all other aspects of our lives, including having the support system that we do!
The Baby Breininger Blog
Welcome friends! In 2007 we started this blog to share the status of our adoption process. After an excrutiatingly long wait, we travelled to Haiti in June 2009 and brought our girl home on July 15. Now this blog is a place for us to share pictures and videos, give updates and brag about how wonderful she is. Enjoy!
