I called everyone in the agency I had spoken with in the past to get some advice and was finally able to speak with the woman who was actually in communication with our psychologist. She suggested getting an appointment with a new psychologist just in case things didn't work out. I was able to use a connection I had made through blogging to get some information about psychologists in the same town as our previous psychologist. (Remember we live in a tiny town far from these kind of resources). My blogging friend didn't have a specific referral, but what she gave me turned out to be better. She sent me a form supplied by their agency for a psychologist to complete. I quickly sent it on to our agency, who approved it and forwarded it in turn to our psychologist. JJ had a baseball game on Friday near the town where our psychologist works. He spent some time calling their office and praying fervently that she would agree to this new form and get it finished in time for a Friday afternoon pick-up and she did!!!! Praise the Lord!! We picked up the form Friday afternoon, put it straight into the mail to a courier service who will hand-deliver it to the Secretary of State's office on Monday and send it on to our agency. I believe it will be in our agency's hands by Tuesday or Wednesday and on to Russian sometime next week.
This was painful. This period has been the most difficult of the entire process, at least for me. At the same time, God has been able to show Himself faithful in a huge way. Thanks so much to my blogging friend!! You provided the means for a miracle.
