Now that the Perlmans have their referral, they must wait for the remainder of the legal process to be completed before they can bring their little girl home. Currently this process is taking 8-12 months to complete. The Congolese government has also temporarily suspended exit approvals for orphans so currently no one is being allowed to complete their adoption. This will likely be revoked, but will likely slow down the process even more.
In the meantime, the Perlman's sweet little girl will be in foster care, which Sarah and Andy will have to pay for. The cost is $550 per month. It is my goal to raise 6 months worth of foster care funds.
Would you please consider being a part of this journey? 95% of all contributions will go directly to the Perlmans (GoFundMe! takes 5% of all donations as a fee). We would love to have you be a part of this journey with us.
Thank you so much for your support. It warms our hearts to know this baby is already being cared for by her family and friends here in the US. You are taking part in the amazing process of giving an orphan a home and a family. We are grateful.
