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!

If you have questions about adoption, our work in South Africa, or spina bifida, please email me at rbmattox@bellsouth.net

Still No I797

I've called the senators' offices more times that I ever could have imagined. I've never been one to "bug" somebody, but I've done some serious bugging.

I swing from peaceful to anxious several times a day. Yesterday, after multiple phone calls, I finally heard something from both senators' offices. The orphan office as USCIS, we were told, is aware of our case and the need to expedite matters. Once our fingerprint reports are in the computer, she will complete our I797. She will even allow us to pick it up if this is not done in time to receive it in the mail.

Well, today is Tuesday, and no news of a complete 797 today. There are only 3 more business days. Please pray that we get this important document.
