Today we received our I-171H approval! We are SO excited!
I know some of you are thinking... what?!? Simply put... the government has approved Gary and I to adopt. To be parents... "it has been determined that you are able to furnish proper care for an orphan or orphans." It's nice to have an official piece of paper that says we are worthy of parenthood. Our seven children will be thrilled that we now have documentation to back us up. I kid.
This is one of those moments that make the journey to adoption seem a little more real for me... like it's not just some fairy tale dream. It's really happening.
Thank you for praying for us as we travel this road... we are SO happy and blessed to have you journey with us.
Ok... but... WOO HOO!! :)
