We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. ~Isaiah 64:8

Adoption Granted!

Our adoption was granted today! Court went well (we hear from the in-country team) and we have a new family member.

We should get more information soon (in the next day or so, I expect) about travel dates - but should be traveling in 2-3 weeks. There is some paperwork to get wrapped up in Ghana for the US Embassy and then we'll be ready to travel. Pray for this to happen quickly so that all will be ready to the Embassy on our first visit.

We are really praying to be able to bring her home on the first trip. The sooner she gets home, the better for her attachment process and developmental progress.

Now it is time to hustle! Lots to do and plan for...

Woohoo! What a wonderful answer to prayer! I'm so excited for you all, and I'm on pins and needles here, waiting to hear the joyous news that your travel plans have been finalized and you're on your way to meet your littlest girl--and bring her home! (Will definitely add that to my prayer list too: ONE TRIP.) :D
