God's Timing isn't always about having to wait longer

We were expecting to get a status update next week to find out whether our case has moved out of Family Court yet and into the PGN. Instead, we received a phone call yesterday telling us that our case has been approved by the PGN!

Today or monday, our lawyer will receive the final adoption decree (which makes Kevin legally our child) and then it takes about 2 weeks to take care of some other paperwork, such as getting Kevin's new birth certificate with us as his parents and our last name as his and his Guatemalan passport for traveling. After that, the lawyer applies for our pink slip which denotes that we're allowed to go to the Embassy in Guatemala. It takes 48 hours for the pink slip to be issued (not including Friday, Saturday, Sunday.) When we are notified that the pink slip has been requested, then we'll make our travel plans for a few days later based on when the pink slip is likely to be issued. Our coordinaor told us to expect with 95% certainty that we'll be traveling in 3-4 weeks.
