Exciting Adoption Update!

After 13 months of virtually silence, we received an incredibly exciting phone call today from our adoption agency.

The IBESR in Haiti has requested that we pay them a fee, so they can release our formal referral. We immediately mailed a check to our adoption agency this morning and our Haiti Director was going to wire a payment today to the IBESR. This is the very last step before receiving the official referral! We can now expect our phone to ring, literally any day now, telling us we have the official referral. Once we receive this long awaited phone call, Clayton and I will travel immediately to Haiti, so we can meet our 3 sons!

We are so close to receiving the official referral and we are so, so excited for this next massive step in our adoption journey.

Here is how YOU can help our family. We would be so appreciative if you would pray for our 3 boys (#littlemenmeyer) and our family as we wait. We would be extremely grateful if you could make a donation to our gofundme page: Adopting Haitian Brothers by Kim Meyer - GoFundMe as well as share our Facebook page: (1) Adopting Haitian Brothers with your friends on social media.

We need to raise $9,000 in the next 30 days, so we can accept the official referral once it is issued.  If we do not have this amount in hand once we receive the referral, we will be unable to accept the referral and our oldest son (16) will no longer be adoptable because of his age.

Please pray that God would provide what we need, when we need it, as we work to become a family of 7!

'The most difficult decision of our marriage' Blog Post

Our family had the privilege of writing about our decision to adopt 3 older boys for our church online community. You can read it here:

We are still waiting for the IBESR to officially match our family to the boys. Once that happens, we will travel to Haiti and finally get to meet our 3 little men!

We currently need to raise $28,000 in order to bring our boys home.  Please continue to pray for our boys and our family as we wait.

Answered Prayer.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU for praying this past week! God has answered our prayers in a mighty way. 
The Haitian Children's Judge signed our documents!!!  
Praise Jesus!  

This very moment, our dossier is sitting at the IBESR, waiting for them to attach our dossier to the boys file and issue us, the 'official referral.' This is the last step to receiving the referral. Once we have the referral, Clayton and I leave for Haiti, so we can go meet our 3 little men!

When I (Kim) read the email this morning from our Haiti Director, letting us know that the Judge had signed our documents, I started to cry. I was in my car, stopped at a stop sign in our neighborhood when I got the email. I could not stop the tears.  There is much, much more to this Judge process than what we are allowed to share and the details of this process made me cry. Tears of joy, tears of sadness for all that our boys have been through, but mostly, tears of joy, that God has heard our prayers and the prayers of so many of you, praying for our adoption. 

This week, please pray specifically for the IBESR to match our dossier to the boys file and issue our family the formal referral! As I said last week, this process can take months and months, but God has proven yet again, that He is on the Throne and has granted us a major milestone, in only 1 weeks time. 1 week! Only God!  

Our adoption agency (America World Adoption) as well as the boys orphanage (Chances for Children) are pushing very, very hard for the IBESR to issue the formal referral.  

Your prayers matter, every single prayer matters and is so appreciated. We are so grateful for every single person praying for our boys, our adopting process and our family as we wait. Do not stop praying. 

We would be honored if you would donate towards our matching adoption grant from Lifesong For Orphans, courtesy of The Karis Fund! Every single dollar donated is greatly appreciated and gets us closer and closer to our #littlemenmeyer. We still need $2,120 in order to receive the $5,000 matching adoption grant. We are applying for additional adoption grants, as we still have a long way to go financially, before we can bring our boys home.

January- A month of waiting...

We wanted to say, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, to those who have been donating and sharing our adoption journey on social media. We are so appreciative when you share our story!

Currently, our dossier is before a Haitian Children's Judge. The Judge needs to sign our dossier, so that it can go back to the IBESR, for formal matching, which leads to the formal referral being issued for our #littlemenmeyer. Once we get this referral, Clayton and I will immediately travel to Haiti to meet our boys.

Here is how you can pray specifically for us this week. PLEASE  pray that God would speed this process along. This process alone, could take months and months to be completed. Please join us in praying that our dossier would be expedited and a sense of urgency would be felt by every single person that is involved in bringing our adoption to completion.

One of my (Kim) all-time favorite songs is: Elevation Worship: Unstoppable God

"Nothing shall be impossible, Your Kingdom reigns unstoppable, 
We'll shout your praise forever more. Jesus our God, Unstoppable!"

For the last 2 years, we have been committed and working hard towards bringing our adoption to completion and now, we are even more committed to bringing our 3 boys home!  I (Kim) would feel such discouragement each time we were delayed. So.Many.Many.Delays. So many tears and such frustration with each delay.

Now, looking back, we can see why God put those delays in our adoption journey. Had we not been delayed, we would not have been at the perfect spot, at the perfect time, to notice our boys photo and jump at the chance to adopt them. The boys situation was a little complicated, but because of all our delays, we were exactly where we needed to be. Only God!! Only God could have orchestrated the timing of our family with the timing of connecting with our boys. 

Never forget, nothing is ever impossible or too hard for our God. Seek Him with all your heart.

We would be honored if you would connect with us:
Matching Adoption Grant:  We still need $2,200 in order to receive the $5,000 matching grant.
