Email from Mauricio (sent late on Friday)

Barbara... good morning!!
I had my meeting yesterday with Procuradora, and this is the result:

The joint meetings are taking place monthly; last week they had the last one, and Hollifields were approved as adoptive family.
The children who are in disposal for assigning in adoption, that Sanchez' expressed interest on, are in ISNA's CEO hands, and he must state the matching. She said that ISNA's CEO has rigurous criteria, and she must respect him, but she would like to have more space for taking decision on these issues. OPA will notify us when ISNA states the matching.
Next week they will continue the joint meeting suspended last Friday.I'm waiting the papers that I asked you regarding the DeVries.
So, there is good news, the meetings are continuing! We have another family approved!! Hooray! And we are waiting to hear about the siblings for the Sanchez family. The request was received there. Keep this in your prayers!

Also I spoke to Walter and he let me know that they are working with the advertising specialists there in ES and will be ready to start getting the word out through advertising about the adoption opportunities. We are very hopeful that this will help Mauricio to find more children for our families.

I sent an Email to Mauricio asking, "Is there any news you can give us?? Any Joint Meeting coming up soon? Any news? Any more children/babies/birthmothers?
Also, I’m waiting to hear anything more on the Sanchez family and the request for information on the 3 siblings.
AND - Also for information on meeting with the Procurador about Carmen / Morgan family. Please let me know on these as soon as possible."

He replied, "The only news is that I got the appointment with Procuradora for the 24th June, at 2:30 pm, and I'm going to update the real way to work established by Procuradora/ISNA in relation with the twice monthly joint meetings that she told us when we were talking with her last March.Also I've announced to her secretary that my other purpose of the appointment is the Morgan/Carmen's case.I have no news regarding the Sanchez's request, but tell them that I'm going to ask about this next Friday.Best regards.Mauricio"
So, please pray for a successful meeting with the Procurador on the 24th!

Latest News

Maurcio had a list of 7 children being offered through ISNA. This is great news. There were 4 individual children and 3 who made up a sibling group. The individual children were ages 6 and up. The siblings were ages 4, 6 & 10. While these children are older than most of our families have requested, it is exciting to see children being cleared and offered through ISNA!
