I have learned you really can't plan how things will go here, that you just need to be very flexible and go with the flow. But I feel like it is time to start thinking about coming home again. My return flight is Nov. 3. I THINK that if something doesn't happen in the next two weeks, I may just be on that flight home. I miss my family and am tired. Many people have been going to court and some have already left with their children. While I am so happy for them, it is so difficult to see. My selfish heart thinks, "Why can't that be us? M. deserves this! I have been here a long time and am not even through the first step!"
There is also an issue that needs prayer regarding an important document that is needed to get the visa. Hopefully our lawyer is working on it as promised and we will get it taken care of soon.
Of course, if I do fly home in the next few weeks that means we will need to purchase yet ANOTHER airline ticket to come back in the future. We are out of money and are praying for God's provision for this if need be.
