On March 14, 2011, we finally received that wonderful piece of paper . . . that plain, black on white that looks so ordinary but holds so much meaning! YES!!! Our "Golden Ticket" finally arrived from the United States Gov't!!! We have official permission to pursue the adoption of a special needs child of either gender up to the age of 11 years!
This is a wonderful thing after waiting so long . . . and God willing . . . the stack of documents now sitting on our kitchen table will be in a Fed-Ex envelope wending their way to Katya's country by Tuesday evening!! Please pray for all the crazy running around we have to do to tomorrow to juggle the lasts steps in between the appointments and such that were scheduled already for the day! It's going to be a long day but it will all be worth it if we can get that dossier safely to Katya's country and then be able to officially let the powers that be know that we are serious about adding Miss Katya to our family! Can't wait to see my sweet heart again . . . . can't wait to love on her . . . can't wait to watch her completely capture her Daddy's heart and wrap it around her little finger. ;-)
We are being told to expect to travel in about 5 weeks or so . . . please pray for the remaining funds that we need to raise!! And as always, please feel free to share this blog with others and ask them to prayerfully consider joining in helping to bring Katya home.
