The Roller Coaster continues

Dear ones:

Maybe we will have a Guatemalan miracle after all... Please Pray!

The department of State has released the following statement:

Lic. Elizabeth Hernandez De Larios, President of the Directive Council of the National Council on Adoption (CNA), confirms that the CNA will not accept any new adoption cases at this time. The halt is to enable CNA to work on establishing guidelines to use in accrediting agencies for intercountry adoptions and to focus on completing transition cases.

The CNA indicates that there were 883 cases that were not submitted by August 31, 2008 deadline for the verification process. Those cases will be turned over to the Guatemalan courts as abandonment cases. In order to ensure that those cases get quick attention, CNA felt it was necessary to stop accepting new cases at this time.

Lic. De Larios does not view the halt as long term and expects that CNA will be ready to complete Haugue requirements by January 2009. More info about CNA's decision may be found on its website, http;//www.cna.gob.gt


  1. Michelle,
    I thought of you first when I read the message from the CNA earlier today. January 2009 isn't that far away! Maybe this was the sign you were waiting for. I'll continue to pray!

  2. Praise God that movement is on the way....may God send you encouragement and may He teach you to Trust Him with the details.

  3. Thanks Pam and Kimmie,

    Eric and I have been praying as to where to go next. We were not going to move until we knew where to go. It just seemed like silence waiting for Him to speak. Maybe this is why. Maybe we are to stay put. Thank you for praying.

  4. I have been praying for you guys. I do hope that it will reopen and you can continue your adoption.

  5. I found your blog and to let you know I am praying for you and your family... To bring your little girl home!!!! Will continue praying!

  6. AHHH!! That is great ! I will pray for you and all the children..oh I hope this really works out. You will have your Guatemalan Princesa :) Maria
