With God ALL things are possible!!!!

I am so very excited to announce our agency has agreed to let us adopt the 13 year old boy, our new son!

I will write more later - it is such an amazing story that deserves to be told, but right now I have some adoption paperwork to do! I have to write the LOI (Letter Of Intent, the document we send to China expressing our desire to adopt him), and there is other paperwork to be done as well. We have to get the USCIS part figured out ASAP because the deadline for our RFE is almost here. Now we have to figure out how to get the approval changed for 2 kids, we have to get the home study amended, etc. Also, the notary on our medical forms expires tomorrow, so now I have to go to the doctor's office and get our medical forms redone. I hope that will not be a problem. It wasn't the easiest thing in the world to get it done with the notary the first time, so I'm not enthusiastic about doing it again!

Time to get to work! Keep checking in. With the deadline of our son's 14th birthday this will be quite an adventurous journey, and now that the waiting and wondering is over I will be much better at blogging!

Yes, with God all things are possible! As a family who has recently traveled this same journey, we are ecstatic that another older child now has a family. All because you didn't give up. You persevered. You prayed. And most of all, it was God's plan all along. Praising Him with you!

I JUST KNEW IT!!! THIS IS A GOD-SIZED STORY and yes, you have to tell more when you can come up for air!!! CONGRATULATIONS on your new son.

You know, I was thinking after reading your post on RQ … God may use this as a stepping stone to change their hearts. yes, now, they are saying this is ONE exception … but HIS PLANS may be different. :)
