Tonight, at 5:08 pm…

November 7, 2012 at 6:55 PM by Susanna

 

…we received an email from our US Immigrations officer.

 

You have been approved to adopt one child…”

 

Tears! Rejoic

ing! Celebration! JOY!!!

Tomorrow it will have been four weeks since we sent off our I-800A application. In contrast, this part of Katie’s adoption process took almost 3 1/2 months.

And yes, for those who were praying…we did get the warm, motherly officer we had prayed to receive!

Thank You, God, for these answers to prayer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh Thank you Jesus!
    So happy for this next step to be complete !

    Isaiah 46:10-12
    New International Version (NIV)

    10 I make known the end from the beginning,
        from ancient times, what is still to come.
    I say, ‘My purpose will stand,
        and I will do all that I please.’
    11 From the east I summon a bird of prey;
        from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose.
    What I have said, that I will bring about;
        what I have planned, that I will do.

    praising Him with you!
    laurie

    Would love to know everything about little Katie …how is her osteo. coming along?  Are her bones still so brittle?  How is her tummy crawling, and does she creep any on hands and knees?  How is her attachment coming along with you?  How is her speech doing…can she utter any more sounds. what size is she in now.   Do you have any pets and does Katie like them?  What’s her favorite foods, and favorite things.  cannot wait for the Katie update :-) Are she and Verity playing at all with each other in their own special ways
