The Final Stages of the Wait for it...

I had intended to write a blog post about the final stages of our adoption wait. You know telling you what we were waiting for, how long we might be waiting, what life in the wait was like. But then life happened, my Grandma moved to Heaven, work with Hearts at Home stepped up a notch (remind me to tell you about that!), the great room swap took place (pictures to come) and blogging to a back seat to everything.

And now, the post I was going to write is no longer necessary

Because

Wait for it




WE HAVE OUR TRAVEL APPROVAL FROM CHINA!!!!

The last thing we were waiting on came our way yesterday! This week we will be making travel arrangements and then in exactly 4 weeks we will be on a plane to CHINA to bring our boy HOME!!!



Crazy, Crazy, in the best crazy kind of way.

The whole process from start to finish will have taken exactly 9 months (plus 1 week).

God is good and his faithfulness and provision has been evident through every step of this journey. I can't wait to see what else He has in store.

But for now, it is time to start packing because we are GOING TO CHINA!

Hang on Zak-man, we are coming to bring you HOME!!!

Congrats! Wondering what your timeframe was...our article 5 was picked up and expressed to Beijing on Jan 16th. Still waiting for TA, and hoping we get it soon! We are hoping to be able to travel by the last week of Feb, since it's school vacation week...not sure if that's going to happen if things take much longer.
You must be soooo excited!! Happy and safe travels!
