  Sooooooo......several updates to announce!!!

We have REACHED our fundraising goal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THANK YOU to everyone that contributed to helping us bring our children home.  Seriously, words can not express how very grateful we are!  God has been faithful to provide ALL that we need for this adoption- we are humbled by your generosity, encouragement, and genuine desire in our lives.  

Also...more exciting news!

We got into our USCIS Biometrics fingerprinting appointment 2 weeks early (May 2nd) and were in and out of the office in 10 minutes!!!

then tonight....

We opened up the mail and received our APPROVAL from Immigration to ADOPT (Form I-171H) which means that we are FINALLY  on the waitlist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We are #17!!!!!! (That's not too bad since we know of other agencies where there are waitlists that have about 60 or more families waiting)

Both my mom and sister-n-law said tonight, "Wow - how cool that it arrived on Mother's Day!"   :)   

Another sweet & subtle reminder that God cares  -  He reminded me tonight that "my" time to be a mother will come soon -

THANK YOU again for your prayers & support and...

 Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers!!! You are loved not only by your children, but by our Father who created you and loves you so dearly. 

April & Chris
