I am HAPPY to blog that Birth Certificates are in hand as of Thursday. We have been waiting on them since November and Hallelujah we have them! We also received our official approval from CONANI, of matching us with the girls on Wednesday.
What this means....
We have 1 more approval from USCIS (United States Immigration) that has to be given, then we have a green light to go for our 30 day co-habitation. They are compiling our papers and having them translated (this could take up to a couple of weeks), the papers will then be sent to the US to get approval, then papers will be returned to the DR, THEN we will get our 2 week notice to go! So if all goes smoothly we could be looking to travel the end of April or first of May. Of course we have learned through all of this... it is God's timing-not ours! I do see that it will be an easier stay going at this time for all of us- Final Four behind us and kids will not have to make up as much work if any. So, we are grateful to be approaching this time, when it looks like it will come.
We were able to Face-Time the girls and tell them we are close and the Smiles on their faces were worth it all!! They are so excited!! I cannot wait to hug them!! Thank you again to all who have so faithfully prayed for us and them! I continue to say... words cannot begin to express our thankfulness!!
I just wanted to post on here as well that we have a tax-deductible account set up through LifeSong for Orphans if you would like to donate towards our adoption. This is not a comfortable ask for us but if the Lord leads you to this, we would be eternally grateful for your investment in the lives of our children. Thank you for prayerfully considering!
