We have been in contact with Holt inquiring why the process of authentication and certification by U.S. Immigration has been taking an exorbitant amount of time.  We found out that most of our documents are back, but the state department misspelled the notaries name on some of the certification pages.  They were returned to the state department to correct, had to be re-certified, and now are in the process of being authenticated.  Hopefully those last few documents will be completed soon!  We'll let you know as soon as the rest of the documents have been authenticated!

We are still waiting on our immigration paperwork to be authenticated & certified by U.S. Immigration.  Our hope was to have this completed by now, but unfortunately it's taking much longer than expected.  Please pray for us to have patience! 

Mark your calendars! June 18th from 5:30 P.M. to 9:30 P.M. we are having a fund raiser for our adoption.  The event will be hosted at Union Orchard (2405 South Hwy 75, Union, NE 68455).  There will be live music by The Davenports Jazz Band and The Sleeperhits!  There will be BBQ, beer, wine tasting, orchard tours, baked goods, silent auction, and raffle prizes.  It's going to be a blast, so make sure to bring your lawn chairs or a blanket and enjoy a cool summer night out!

P.S. We have created a crowd funding page! https://www.youcaring.com/ryan-michele-shank-564364
