I just spoke to Chareyl from the Embassy. They have told her that all of your children are in the "first batch" to be signed by the Prime Minister. We need this signature to allow our children to get on the plane.
We have been working diligently with the people trying to arrange the flights in and the custody and the transfer of things between different agencies. We still need some miracles there as well. Sometimes it seems like every department has their own checks and balances that they are trying to confirm and follow and, while we appreciate order, we need things to work out as well.
Please continue to pray. If the Prime Minister doesn't sign these papers today, they're not getting on a plane tonight. The good news is, whenever he DOES sign the papers, they'll be on the next plane.
Many thanks to Brian Hyer at Utah Department of Homeland Security, Laura Trinnaman at For Every Child Adoptions and the Utah Medical Task Force for all the work they have done and continue to do to try to get this plane in the right place for these kids. When this is all over we'll have many, many stories to tell you.
I'll call you as soon as I get word about which plane they're on and their clearance for travel. KEEP PRAYING - we need these last few things to line up.
Please contact me with any questions.
