Just one more paper...

Were were emailed a few days ago and told the social worker responsible for contacting Rylyn’s birth mother and getting her report back to the judge here in Luo-Dong, did call the orphanage back today. She said she had been trying to get a hold of Rylyn’s birth mother to do the final report (the one that is holding up moving forward on the adoption) and each time the birth mother said she was working. The orphanage was able to get ahold of Rylyn's birth mom on her cell phone and and she said that the social worker had not yet made arrangements with her as to the time she would do the report for the judge. They strongly encouraged the birth mother to please try and get with the social worker to get the report done for the judge, otherwise we cannot move ahead with the adoption proceedings. It is frustrating for the orphanage to have to track down folks after the court date to get these reports in for the judge. If they don’t cooperate, then it just makes the paperwork drag out longer. Please pray that the birth mother makes arrangements with the social worker in the next few days so the judge can get the final papers. It is the only thing we are waiting for before we can start looking at flights! Thanks for your prayers.

  1. How frustrating! Prayers that everything will come together very soon...

    Much love,
    Future Mama

  2. I can relate to how frustrating this can be. We had a similar situation where our social worker could not get an address for the birth mother and this delayed our ruling. I hope everything works out for you and you can be on the plane to pick up your baby girl!
