Document Me!!!!!!!

As if our last bit of good news on our current adoption was not enough, MORE good news arrived today!
I received  a phone call from our terrific adoption agency (www.christianadopt.org) that Francis' legal documents are there!! Tomorrow they arrive in our home via Federal Express!  I will immediately file the I-800 on Francis' behalf and then, we . . . say it with me . . . "wait".    We wait a little more joyfully this stretch because it's truly the home stretch. It can last anywhere from 8-14 weeks and then we get to travel.
Thank you, Jesus!

The pic below was taken at my birthday dinner at The Melting Pot.  Although one son is not pictured here (Lemuel), can't you just see Francis sitting at the table with us?  I sure can! It won't be long now . . .


  1. Praise God!!! Won't be long now! :0)

  2. Woo-hoo!!!!! It surely won't be long now!

  3. Oh my! HOW EXCITING! So happy for you and your family! :-)

  4. Congrats on the forward motion!!! God is good, and hope your time is coming soon!

  5. Hooray! Praying for fast approval and travel very soon.

  6. Wow Nikki! This seems to be going really fast! (Perhaps not to you guys but to an outside observer it is!) Happy Belated Birthday. When was your special day???

    Can't wait for our next MNO with the RR gals!!!

    See you then!
