I am back from my trip to Huanuco, Peru! (I know the thousands that read this blog will be happy!) I had to make the trip because we were getting nowhere with the paperwork we sent them. It’s an hour flight to Lima then an 8 or 9 hour curvy, bumpy bus ride to Huanuco. I am so thankful the Lord prepared the way for me! I had virtually no troubles. I arrived in Huanuco about 7:30 a.m. went to the hotel and got cleaned up and then went to find out about the paperwork. I went to the judges office who we have been dealing with the whole time (turns out she’s not the one we needed to be dealing with) and they still couldn’t find anything about the previous paperwork. I told them let’s just forget about the old paperwork and do it over again with what I brought. They then directed me to another building where I was supposed to turn in the papers to – “Mesa de Partes”. The lady at the counter wanted me to admit the paperwork but I told her I had permission from the judge to bring it back myself. She was then kind enough to take me to the judge who handles notifications (we had to notify the biological mom that the adoptions was over). The judge, named “Ulises”, was very nice and asked me a few questions and then looked at the paperwork. He told me I could leave it and he would send it back through Olva Courier. I then told him I had permission to take the paperwork back myself from the judge here in Cusco. I also told him the biological mom was meeting me at 10 a.m. to sign the papers (they were happy about that since she leaves almost an 1 hour away from there). In short, the judge was very kind and said that I could pick the papers up the following day at 10 a.m. I went back the next day and they had everything ready! I have no doubt the Lord worked it all out with all these various people and prepared the way ahead of me. Now we have only 1 more step until the adoption is finally final! Praise the Lord!
