Tomorrow in DRC

The DRC Parliament is supposed to hold a special session to vote on new family codes tomorrow. 

The law supposedly relates to international adoption and may, if it passes, help to clarify adoption. This would, hopefully, help to lift the Exit Letter suspension. If it passes in Parliament, it would then be passed to DRC President Joseph Kabila to (hopefully) sign. 

On a semi-related note, DRC recently released new restrictions regarding who may escort children home from DRC with an Exit Letter (no attorney escorts, basically). I, personally feel that this is a step in the right direction because it shows that some thought is being given to the process of bringing children home (and why would they be thinking about that unless they were planning to allow children to come home soon?). That is my hope and prayer, anyway.

Please pray BIG for tomorrow and for a very near future when children are allowed to come home to families. (And please pray we get our court documents SOON!) 

Thank you, thank you for your continued support and encouragement. We have amazing friends and family!!
