As far as the Guatemalan side of things, it is still quite hectic. We have learned that we must resubmit/update documents in our dossier. This is a time consuming, tedious task. From a realistic perspective, it would be a miracle if Micah comes home to us before the end of 2010 due to the amount of paperwork and the slow pace everything seems to move. We do believe that Micah is our son and he will come home to us.
On a much more positive note, Micah is wonderful! He remains in foster care where he is loved and cared for by a family we love and respect. We continue to speak to Micah over the phone at least three times a month. He is emerged in to the Spanish language and is very articulate. He does say a few words in English, "I love you" and "thank you". He asks about his las hermanas and hermano, always telling them he loves them. Micah gives us kisses over the phone and tells us he loves us, too. Micah is a very special and bright little boy, and we love him so very much. We have planned a visit during the MLK, Jr. weekend.
Thank you for your continued love, prayers, and words of encouragement. We love you all!
