OK...The Time for Panic is NOW

We have been struggling with our Kazakh visas for 2 weeks now, and as of today we still don't have our passports in hand with visas. Yes, you heard that correctly...we have 1 working day left or we can not get on that plane. I am usually good natured and roll with the punches fairly well, but I am officially declaring myself in Panic Mode. The Assistant Stork has been phenomenal in trying to push this through, and I have nothing but high praise for Steve Morrison there. This is really a delay caused by the Kazakh Embassy in the US, and we are praying hard and long that Steve's courier can pick it up this evening and get it FedEx'd in time to us.

So...any of you out there who are praying folks, can I ask for a little one to be sent up for us??

Otherwise, I really am calm, believe it or not! :-)

Prayers flying your way (and to Washington DC!) from Virginia --

Here is what I was planning to write to you, before I saw your latest post. It still applies, no matter what happens:

"For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Jeremiah 29.11

Blessings, peace, much love, and many prayers coming your way from the mom to 2 Bobeks in Virginia.

I will be praying you get them in time! I am just a "lurker" if you will. I read the Kyrgyz adoption blogs every day hoping one day we will join the growing number of others adopting from Kyrgyzstan. I hope everything works out so y'all can go as scheduled!

Hi Cindy
Since you are not adopting from Kaz why can't you just get tourist visas in Almaty? You can get them at the airport! We needed adoption visas (obviously) but were able to get them at the Almaty aitport since we have no Kaz embassy nearby. I assume Matt & Josh will just enter on their Kaz passports ?

I think our passports came just a day or two before we left... the KZ embassy "misplaced" my M's... very stressful!
We'll be praying that the passports show up super quick so that you can get to your sweet boy!
