The Difference A Few Weeks Makes

It is amazing what a difference a few weeks can make! And how we can go from fear to joy in so short a time! We received the phone call less than 2 weeks ago letting us know that the Southern government had signed off on the letter granting their approval to adopting our little girl. Upon hearing this I was overcome with joy and awe of God for what He has done. God has been good to us in granting this little girl to be our daughter and in clearing the way through a seemingly insurmountable obstacle. Now we are impatiently waiting to hear when we are cleared by embassy and can go over to pick her up. It looks like we have a decent likelihood of having her home by Christmas! We hope and pray for this, anyway.

I would like to thank everybody who has been faithful in praying for us through this tough time. You guys have been a blessing to us -- particularly my wife as she has had other shoulders besides mine to lean on and with whom she could talk (or type, as the case may be) things out.
