keeping our heads high

While the news yesterday was discouraging, we are still excited to move full steam ahead! I had about an hour where i may have been panicking, but after I was able to process it, I felt confident that God was still in control. He has chosen a specific child chosen for us, and we will wait as long as we need to.  I am happy to wait for when God says it is time, and I will pray that He chooses a time quicker than we expect :)

Some very good news today: I called USCIS (immigration/citizenship) as I usually do every week, and to my surprise they told me our documents had been approved this morning, and then mailed out today! I ended the conversation on several fist pumps :) This actually happen quite quickly, it is standard for this portion to take 60 days, but ours only took 40! There must have been some prayer warriors out there, what great timing ..

I had someone review our dossier yesterday to make sure everything was looking right so far, and we just have a few easy fixes to make. Once those are done and our USCIS stuff comes in the mail, we get the last portion notarized for that, get some of the documents apostilled, make our final copies, and off to Bethany it goes!

wondering how much paper goes into a dossier? check it out!
