1 down 79 to go!
Today I opened a very encouraging email! The first family of the 80 pipeline families received final visa approval!!! I was ecstatic!! You can read the small article here http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2010/10/candice-warltier-nepal-chicago-kathmandu-adoption.html
I think you can tell by the picture that she is one happy mama!! I think this is great news and shows forward progress from the US government. In terms of my specific case, it will still be a long road before it will be my turn. However, I am happy, happy, happy!! The other day I was reading and came across this verse:
"The Lord isn't really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake." 2 Peter 3:9
I reflected on this for quite some time and realized that there are a million things that need to take place on the emotional, financial and practical fronts! With that said, I still have a huge sense of peace that God is going to bring her home in his perfect timing. And from the email today, it looks like that day is getting a little bit closer:)
Thanks for all of your prayers and support! Also, I can't tell you how much it means to me when you ask me how all of the adoption plans are coming and if there is any new news. Since I don't have a "visible" pregnancy, it means a lot.
