Immigration Speed Bump

Last weekend we opened a very important envelope in the mail!  Our immigration (I800-A) approval finally came!  (2 months 1 week and 6 days of waiting)  This is a very important piece of our adoption paper work collection, and the last form we needed before sending off our Dossier to our agency.

After we all did the happy dance, I read the fine print before carefully placing it with the other papers.  My heart sank when I noticed the error!  After a few moments of panic, and 2 days of phone calls and emails, we have figured out how to correct our form.

Although it was a big discouragement this week, as we thought we were on a roll and about to finish the Dossier, we recognize delays and hick-ups are part of the adoption process.  Today we got up and dusted ourselves off and feel a peace about the delay.  One more step towards the pursuit of our child!

We love you guys and are praying for you!

I love how Psalm 115 reminds us that the Lord is mindful of us; He will bless us as we fear Him! God bless you as you trust Him and may His name receive glory through and your new boy!
