Statute: Tit. 31, §§ 531; 532The adopter must:
· Be a resident for at least 6 months
We thought there was a chance we could satisfy this statue since I lived in Puerto Rico from birth until almost 3 years old, but upon further investigation we were told that the 6 months must be the consecutive months prior to submitting the adoption petition. So there it is. It seems as though our sweet girl is not in Puerto Rico.
Niles and I have both had moments of disappointment as this reality has sunk in. But we press on- by faith. We know that the Lord our God is faithful Today the faithful people listed in Hebrews 11 have been real encouragement to me! I pray they are to you as well.
We will now begin to pray about and research pursuing an adoption in: Costa Rica, Peru or Mexico. Please pray that Lord continues to make his will clear to us and that we are obedient and faithful.
Our soul waits for the LORD;
he is our help and our shield.
For our heart is glad in him,
because we trust in his holy name.
Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us,
even as we hope in you. -Psalm 33:20-22
