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

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.

  1. There have been three visas issued so far. Do you have a referral?
