Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

We need a miracle.

I'm so tired of Satan. After our record wait for TA and LOA, we're having problems with the ATlanta office of USCIS. Does anyone know how I might call the president?

Short story:Pray the LORD speaks to the heart of someone who has the power to intervene, that the power Chrsit gives us can tear down this stronghold.

Long Story:Our fingerprints expire Oct 1. We applied for re-fingerprinting many weeks ago. We finally received appointment for Septmeber 29, only 10 days before we leave for China. That's cutting it close to be able to process and receive our new 171/797 before travel.
In addition: We did not receive a fingerprint appt for our daughter, Whitney age 19.
OUr agency has called on our behalf. Our senator has called on our behalf. Our congressman has called on our behalf.We are told, the appointments have been scheduled, and the orhpan officer is out of the office this week....so no one else can reschedule them?Well, our appts are later than we need them, and, if they are scheduled, where is Whitney's? No one else can find out if Whitney's were scheduled? Was her appt mailed? Was it lost in the mail?
We've been on the phone and faxing congressman for over a week, talking with them everyday.
We need earlier appts, we need WHitney's appt, and we need our new 797!

Please help us pray. My God parted the Red Sea. Please pray he parts these troubled waters and we cross the other side on dry ground.

Thank you, all of you, for your prayers and support during the long, difficult journey to our precious Ellie!
May God receive all glory and honor!Robbie

Robbie, with the fingerprint letter you should be able to go to the USCIS on their walkin day ahead of schedule. We were able to do this at the Louisville CIS even though our I171H was processed at the Indy office. We were able to go one week or more ahead of our appointment times with both adoptions. Take your letter and walk into the fingerprint office - I think Wednesdays are their walk in day! Hope this all works out soon!
