My agency called this morning with such wonderful news....our Article 5 has been approved!!! (It took 11 days from the time it was cabled to the consulate.)
All our paper work is finally at the CCAA!!!! Now, we wait for our TA!!! (This could take two to four weeks.) I think I can safely say we will be in China next month!!!!! (insert big smile)
Yeah!!!! Thank you Jesus!!!
I actually started to cry while talking to our case worker.
My four year old became alarmed.
Shea: "What's wrong Mommy?"
Me: "Nothing sweetie, everything is just right."
Shea: "Why are you crying?"
Me: "I just got some good news about your little sister."
Shea: "Oh." (confused look on her face)
Me: "Let's pray and thank Jesus right now."
Shea: "Thank him for what?"
Me: "That we are one step closer to getting Avery!"
So, she and I got down on our knees and offered up a prayer of thanksgiving.
Will you all please join me?????
