We are thrilled beyond belief- excited beyond words- to announce that at 10:22am this morning (while I was shopping in Target!!LOL) we got a phone call from our agency announcing that our Letter of Confirmation had arrived and we are officially accepted as Hope's parents!!! Are we not the luckiest people on earth??? It is through tears that I type- the feeling that this journey is going to take us halfway around the world- to get our sweet baby is beyond words!! We are soooooo very blessed!
What's next? Well we get overnighted the Letter of Approval from our agency- then we need to sign it saying that in fact we DO want to adopt this angel (duh!) and overnight it to Beijing! Then we wait for our Travel Aprroval- which usually takes about 2-3 weeks- THEN we book our tickets to China!! WOOHOO!!!! WE hopefully will be travelling in March!! I cannot believe that this child will be in our arms in just a couple months- oh God is good!! My faith was getting shakey these past few days- then this morning i said this bible verse:
"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly,steadily,surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.If it seems slow, do not dispair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!"
It is right- everything happens according to a higher plan- and it is all perfect in it's timing- even if we don't realize it at the time!!!
We are thrilled and will keep all of you posted whe we know more!!! Thanks for keepig us in your thoughts- and, as always- we love hearing from you on our guestbook!!!!!
Love amy & darrin XOXO soon parents to 5!!!!
