Letter of Approval!!!!!!!!! 2009-03-24 18:48:05.0

We are thrilled to announce that we recieved our Letter of Approval from China today in the mail!!!  We are so excited!! Basically what this means is that we are officially Sam's family--and now we are just waiting for our travel approval and we're off!!! Woohoo!

Best guess is for May travel--which is not far off! We are so grateful that we are given the awesome opportunity to be this sweet angel's family! We are also so grateful that his case was expedited! It means that we will be able to get him the care that he so needs asap!! 

We can't wait to hold him in our arms.....and love him in person, instead of from afar!!!

Celebrating tonight for our wonderful son!!!

Hoping the travel approval is speedy!! we come!!!

I just found this and thought that it was so beautiful--I had to add...

Every call has a beginning A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens. A sacred invitation sent by the Father.. Leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows Praying for someone to care.. And then one morning, On an ordinary day An orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you.. --author unknown
