We are on the road! Right now we are in Lima. Our adventure started on Monday when we flew to Lima that night we took the bus to Huanuco, Peru (9 hour ride).
As soon as we arrived in Huanuco on Tuesday morning we got cleaned up and took a colectivo (cheap taxi) to Acomayo (where the girls are from). Below is a picture of the girls with there biological mom (Tania), sister (Meyli), brother(Jhon Pierro).
In Acomayo we got the girls new birth certificates. At first we had a problem because in the adoption papers Rebecca’s name was spelled with 1 “c” instead of 2 and it seemed like they weren’t going to do the certificates. Praise the Lord in the end they did do them and even gave us a $60.00 discount on all the paperwork!
After celebrating a little with Tania and her kids we made our way back to Huanuco and pretty much slept. The next morning (Wednesday) we got on the bus for another 9 hour ride to Lima. Today we went first thing to get the girls’ passports. We had some trouble because on the adoption papers my name is “Jason Scott Reinhardt” but on my passport and carnet it is “Jason S. Reinhardt”. We ended up getting both passports in Rebecca’s name. Praise the Lord they let us do that! Now we just have a coupe more steps for the visa work.
Praise the Lord that He has gone before us this whole way working everything out! Thank you all for your prayers!
