The Facilitator

Just like pregnancies, all adoptions are different. In our case we have a facilitator in Eastern Europe, instead of an OBGYN, who is handling everything for us on that end. And it is a big job. He has to review our 70 or so pages of documents that make up our dossier, get them translated, act as our attorney to submit petitions, work with agencies to arrange appointments, get drivers, translators, and a place for us to stay.

Did you know that the word facile in French means easy? And facilitation means to make easier. His job is to make our adoption process easier, and let me assure you, he knows how to do his job. Within days of finding out that Peach was not registered for adoption, he had a fix in place. She will be ready when we get there.

But beyond that, Peach is scheduled for surgery on July 9th. She will have her pulmonary artery banded. This surgery, if successful, will protect Peach until she can come home and have her heart reconstructed.

Our facilitator tells me that she will be taken to the best children’s hospital in the country. His next words to me were, “I won't leave her, she will have proper care, medicines, nutrition etc.”

When I read that I was overcome with a mix of emotions and thoughts. He didn’t have to say that, he doesn’t have to do that. But he just made July 9th and the days following a lot easier for me.

It reminded me that God is the greatest facilitator of all and He, too, will be with Peach on July 9th. “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:5
