Birth Certificate News

On Friday, we met with our social worker Lauren at Lifeline to update our home study and ask questions about traveling to Guatemala. We found out that one of the critical points in the adoption is getting the new birth certificate. The new certificate can take a while depending on which city our little boy was born in.
The first orphanage Jett was in was located in Guatemala City. They had told us that his birthday was Nov. 25, 2002 and that he was born in Guatemala City. However, according to our new birth certificate (we received it this summer), Jett was born in Escuintla on February 10, 2004.
We're so thankful that he wasn't born in Guatemala City as that would slow down the new birth certificate significantly. The younger age was a huge blessing as well.
God is in total control, and we are not. Thank you Father!
