"the things you do for love"

Ok, so here is the latest...
We were required to update our paper work with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") on May 12 and have been waiting for an important document called a I171-H ever since then. China requires to have this document before they can schedule our consulate appointment...which will then determine our travel dates. While we were visiting my family in Georgia, we received word from our adoption agency that we needed to correct a mistake that had been made before we could receive our I171-H. Our signature was needed before the papers could be mailed, so we got up at 4:30 AM to get on the road early enough to make it back in time to sign the papers and overnight them to USCIS. It has been very ironic at times during the adoption process that we have needed to act so quickly and then come to a complete stop and wait for "the other side" to take their time (at least that's what it feels like to us). But there is true comfort in knowing that every detail of this adoption is totally in God's hands and His ways are perfect!
I have joked about this being my longest "pregnancy" by far! And right now I feel like these are the days leading up to my "due date". Knowing it could happen anytime, while trying to stay focused and carry on with life, working on the mile long "to do" list that needs to be completed before the baby comes.
Please keep praying!


  1. Oh yay! Cant wait to see her! She's going to be awesome, and it's going to be here before we know it! :) love youu!

  2. We know exactly what you're talking about. We will be sure to pray for you guys this weekend...weekends were always the hardest waiting for us knowing that we wouldn't hear anything for at least 2 more days!
