Red light....GREEN LIGHT!!!!!!


Justin and I are ecstatic, giggling, crying and praising God at 2:21 in the morning:  We received the news that our daughter's paperwork has been cleared by US Immigrations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We'll await news from the US Embassy for a visa appointment and when we can travel (hoping next week!).  Thank you, everyone, for the numerous times you've prayed, texted, called, encouraged and put a hand on our shoulders as we went through this long process!  God is amazing!  Thank you Jesus, for sustaining us and allowing us to experience Your heart's desire for adoption.  To say we're overwhelmed is an understatement!  




Baby girl:  may your heart be filled with this life giving Joy that is from Christ alone.  You have a forever family and we cannot wait to have you in our arms again!!!!  I've waited since June 23 to say this: SEE YOU SOON!!!!!!!!!!  We love you, xoxoxox!!!


Psalm 9:1 “I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.”

(I wish the smile here --> :) could get bigger in font so it reflected the one on my face!!) His mercies are new, every morning, and boy I learned that first hand Thursday night going into Friday morning! We are busy baby proofing the house, looking at flights, talking about "we should do this and that before she comes home", and just thanking God over and over and over that it's finally "go" time :) If this weren't God's will, there's no way I could create this much joy, love, peace, and anticipation on my own! Soaking up this amazing new season we're heading into.... finally!!
