God is moving for Annie

May 26th, 2016

Stephanie texted me early on Monday morning as she and Brian and two of their girls were headed to the China consulate in New York City.

She texted me again yesterday, Wednesday, to say that they were again waiting sixth in line at the China consulate in New York City.  They’d had to redo one document that had been rejected because one written number in a notary expiration was written darker than the other numbers!  Oh the craziness of the adoption process!

Then she texted again today, Thursday, on their way back home from the China consulate in New York City for the third time in four days – “BUT THIS TIME WITH OUR LAST DOCUMENT!!!”  They stopped on the way home to FedEx it to USCIS and to their adoption agency to send to China.  In the past four days, Brian and Stephanie have logged 15 to 18 hours on the road, BUT…!

Their dossier is now in China, China was ready for them, and they should receive their LOA (Letter of Acceptance) next week!!

“Keep praying!!” Stephanie says.  

They are planning to make their flight reservations tomorrow, Friday, and are trusting God that the needed funds will be in hand.  They are so grateful to all of you who have given in faith that God can accomplish this task!

If you haven’t yet given to their YouCaring fund, now would be an excellent time!  

If you haven’t yet shared their need, now would be an excellent time for that, too!   https://www.youcaring.com/annie-556471

The plan is to leave for China the last week of June, adopt Annie on her fourteenth birthday, with the embassy appointment and flight home taking place the first week of July.

“God is on the move…so are we…trying to keep up with Him…!” wrote Stephanie.  “She is coming home!!!”

    Wow – this does classify as a miracle!

    In my experience if something went “wrong” in the consulate (in NYC) then it could be easily months for the rescheduled appointment.

    That this child might be adopted into a real family on her actual birthday has God’s fingerprints all over it.

    Every time I look at this child’s smile I find myself smiling back at the computer.

    Please keep us updated as you are able, Stephanie.

    *On her birthday*. That made me tear up and smile all at the same time. God is so good!!!
