some more news on our adoptions

We just got our registration number and are expecting to hear soon about our approval from USCIS... this can usually takes months and we are excited it was completed so quickly. We almost can not believe all that has happened in such a short time for us to be able to adopt these 2 precious children.... Please pray for us as we enter into the next part of this process... we need to be able to have the money for this adoption and Paul feels very convicted that it will come not out of our family expenses but that the Lord will provide as He has in the past... we have some news to share there as well.... We just heard about an extra 3,000 dollars made available that we were not counting on and this will go into our adoption fund.... thank you Lord for this gift. We also just received a check in the mail from some dear friends of ours who felt the Lord moving to help us adopt once again. Thank you to all who have given to our adoption fund ... We are eternally grateful and feel blessed to be sharing this journey with you all. We are excited and getting even more so with this last few days occurances. Sometimes when you adopt it seems like forever that things take to get done... most of us desire to have our child home yesterday... we hurry up and get the paperwork done, and hurry to submit and then wait..... the waiting is actually harder to do for me. At least with all the paperwork gathering I feel like we are doing something...

I'm glad to hear this news. I was reading a few previous posts, too, about your family. Sorry I can't read it all right now. Thanks for living out your convictions so strongly.
Joy,RR

Jeane I couldn't agree with you more. I loved gathering all the papers. With each paper we were one step closer than when we were done with that is was like all time stopped. Looking back I have to laugh :) I am so happy to hear everything is going so fast and smooth. What an exciting time!!
