    Thank God for this decision – I am rejoicing for you, and for Katie, and for the other children whose families will follow your newly-blazed path through those no-longer- forbidding mountains. May any other would-be barriers fall, as you make your way to Katie.

    Continued prayers for Katie’s health and for compassionate caregivers for her and the other children waiting with her, special prayers for Katie’s sweet Baba, and prayers for Katie’s adoption to be completed in record time are all being offered.

    Godspeed on your journey…
