I just got word that our facilitator was able to apply for the tax code! He said tomorrow we will stop by and show them the new birth certificate. At that point they can give us the tax code or make us wait!
Pray that we do get the tax code! Pray with us, then we can really get things moving!With God all things are possible, He can make this happen!
Tomorrow is a big day for us. Tomorrow is "gotcha day!"
In the morning I will go and get Nina's new birth certificate. Andy and I will be listed as her parents, her birth certificate will actually read "Nina Stumbo!"
After that, we are stopping by the tax office to check on the tax code. If we get it back, we can even apply for the passport later in the day.
From there we go to the orphanage and we get Nina!
Our translator told me she went to the orphanage today to get some pictures. She told me she got to see Nina.
"She looks differnt." She said
"What do you mean different?" I asked
"She looks different than last time I saw her, different form all the other kids"
"And why is that?"
"I can tell the difference, because she looked loved"
Yes, Nina is loved, she is loved! And that has made all the difference!
