We got it, we got it!

I suppose this is the first of the "we got its" in our future. Yesterday was the total excitment of finally getting our revised I-171. This document allows us to go to Addis, Abba Ethiopia and return with one or two orphans. It was the final peice to our paperchasing days! Since we began our adoption journey over 1 1/2 years ago, we have been led by the Lord to switch programs and go to Ethiopia instead of China. This was such an amazing realization and truly the work of our Lord. However it did create a lot more paperwork and some we are DONE!!! The tears flowed as I pulled the letter from the mailbox and saw the "Homeland Security" return address. What an emotional relief and amazing peace I now feel.........until the next "we got it"!! (referal day)

Congratulations! What a relief it must be to be done after all that time! I can't wait to hear about future "got its". I'll be praying that day comes soon.

God bless,
