So unfortunately, the visas did not come threw (and most likely weren't going to from the beginning, but we didn't know that). This obviously means we are not traveling to the DRC this weekend. Needless to say it was a very emotional day.
But as I sit here writing, I am okay. Eric and I think that this may be for the best, but we will have to wait and see. We like to live by the scripture that man makes his plans but God directs his steps. So we are choosing to believe that God is just directly our steps in this. And actually, this might afford us the opportunity to attend the visa interview for the boys.
We are still trying to figure out what happens next, but I'll make sure to update everyone once we do. Thank you for all the encouragement and prayers. As long as the boys come home safe and sound, we will persevere through anything.
