We have received a notification from the US Embassy that they require more time to locate the birth father. They met with another member of the family who seems to have an idea where the father might be. So, in the meantime, we wait and pray.
We thought we might be traveling soon. Now, we literally have no idea. None.
Trusting in God's sovereignty~
Let me clarify. The birth father must present himself to the US Embassy to once and for all relenquish his rights. It doesn't matter that he was present for court in ET. The US Embassy's main job is to verify that everything was done above the line and truthfully, then issue visas for the girls to travel. They are withholding the final clearance because the father cannot be found. Until then...
