Joel and I have sensed a calling to international adoption for many years. In May, 2009 God made it abundantly clear that it was time. After much prayer, research and wise counsel we began the process to adopt a daughter from China. God directed us to an incredible agency that was founded by a family with an amazing testimony. This blog is a chronicle of our journey, to inform our friends and family and as a record of events for our daughter to read one day. Join us in the journey... it is sure to be an adventure!

They're Back!

Just a quick update. I received a call from that nice Fedex man today to let me know that my package was back. So I dropped everything and went to get them (of course). Everything is in order and appropriately authenticated...Yay! I almost had a heart attack when he handed me the package because it was only half the thickness of the one I sent, then I realized that they had kept the copies that I had to send with the originals...whew!

Also, we received our invitation to have the biometric fingerprinting done by USCIS (Immigration/Homeland Security). We go two weeks from today for that. Then, all we will do is wait for that final approval from USCIS which could come any time between now and the end of February. Yeah, I know, it's brutal.

So, thanks for your prayers for the documents to return safely. Another step is behind us!
