Shannon's prints finally went through. It was her rolled (ink) prints that finally cleared and not the digital (high tech) prints! Gotta love modern technology! Our Home Study is now done and we should be getting a letter soon from the adoption agency saying they have approved and cleared us to adopt Mei. From what we understand most everything is complete in E. Asia where Mei is. Now we begin what they call the INS process - more prints, more paper work, and more waiting.
From what we are gathering it looks like we may be headed to bring Mei home some time around June-July. HIS timing! We wait and continue the process.
This weekend we will be in Orlando to celebrate Chinese New Year with other families who have adopted from China. This means we will also get to meet the ladies from the agency in California. We are excited to meet them. FBC Orlando is being gracious enough to put us up in one of their mission homes for the weekend. We are looking forward to a weekend getaway for our family.
Thank you all for your prayer. There are other things we cannot share at the moment that we need prayer for. I long to share these specifics because I know you all will diligently pray for us to have wisdom and His discernment as life's storms come at us. Until we can share specifics please continue to pray for us. We are so thankful to the Lord and His faithfulness. We are closer than ever to seeing the impossible become a reality as He brings Mei home to be a part of our family. We can't wait!!! But we must!!!
