Our Fingerprinting is Done!

We're so excited that our refingerprinting is done - what a relief! We waited for almost 2 months for our appointment and we were breathing easier when everything looked good. We had heard they can be very picky if you have cracks or cuts, so we've been babying our hands for a while. Please pray that our I-171H (permission to bring a child into the country) form comes through quickly. This can take a lot of time and our old form expires in April.

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart." Jer. 1:5

I read this in my devotions this morning and couldn't help but think of our baby. No matter how unwanted it may appear she is right now, God has known all along the loving family He intended for her.

Referral Countdown

Referrals came through last week and the final match day was:

Oct 13, 2005 - 78 days to our LID

Welcome to Our Blog

Hi everyone,
Thanks for joining us on this journey to China. We have an LID of 12/30/05 and our agency is predicting a June referral (match). That means we hope to be traveling by about August. We're so excited that this is finally going to happen. We started our paperwork trail in April '05. At that time the wait for referral was only 6 months. It looks like it will be about 18 months for us. No matter how long it has been, we can see God's hand in the timing. We dealt with some family medical issues this past 9 months. I can't imagine having a new baby in the midst of all of them. Only God knows what is in store and He has once again proven to us His love and provision for us.
