No News, Part II

I recieved an email from our Case Manager that wasn't too promising.  The trend in most cases being referred to the USCIS in Nairobi were done so between 4 and 5 weeks after submission to the Embassy.  We are at just over 4 weeks.... also, another case that was submitted the same day as ours, and had a phone number requested the same day as our case, was just sent to Nairobi yesterday. 

We are probably in one of two scenerios.  The first scenerio is that they were unable to contact the police officer at all.... or scenerio two is that they made contact with him, but he was unable to remember the specific details about our daughter's case (which wouldn't be a surprise seeing has how he wrote the report 18 months ago!!).  The bad thing is, we just don't know because the Embassy will not give us any information as to where they are on the case.  Even IF they send the case to USCIS, they do not tell the family why.  They just say that it 'was not clearly approvable.' 

OR, they could email us tonight and say come and get your daughter (which would be AWESOME!!)  but, we just don't know and it stinks.

The last case that went to USCIS in Nairobi took 9 days from the time it was sent until approval, but there have been others that have taken 3 months.  I'm not trying to be the bearer of bad news, but I guess I just need to prepare my heart for this in case it happens. . . and it might just take a while. 

I'm still clinging to this promise (which is also on Ellie's name sign hanging beside her empty crib): 
 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

  1. Ok, Angie. I haven't gotten any emails, so I'm kind of going by yours that our situation is similar. Praying with you.
