The Rummerys are adopting! God placed adoption on our hearts about two years ago as a result of mission trips we took with our church in 2009 and 2010 to an orphanage in Peru. Well, to be honest, Cindy has had this on her heart since I took a trip to an orphanage in Ukraine in 1998, and it has taken me this long to open my heart to adoption! Read More Here

Approved to Adopt!

Good adoption news today!  We heard from our adoption agency, who heard from our lawyer in Lima, who found out that the Secretaria National de Adopciones (SNA) in Peru approved us just yesterday as adoptive parents!  This has been the next big step in our process that we have been waiting for after our dossier was translated into Spanish.  We were anticipating that the SNA would ask us for more information about our family before they approve us (like medical stuff, documents, etc), but we're thankful that they didn't.  They still may ask for more from us at any time and so we'll wait and see.  
Now we wait for the SNA to match us for an adoption!  Please keep praying for us!

Happy Independence Day, Peru--July 28!
