But what can I say? Life gets in the way of good intentions. I have 3 small boys, am in the middle of an adoption, and have other friends who are adopting and need help. I stay pretty busy.
For those of you who don't read The Blessing Of Verity, you should go over today and read the post about 40 to Forever. We're one of the 40 children and families who will benefit from this event. It's an amazing project that goes through the Lenten season. There will be devotions and prize giveaways every day! It's going to be amazing! Our day to be featured is February 25th (day 11).
Ok... now for the big news!
Since my last blog, we've gained our I800 approval from the US government and the ministry signature from our daughter's government. If all goes well, a judge will approve our adoption tonight in the wee hours. (They are 8 hours ahead of us, so they will be working while we still sleep!) Our daughter will officially become a Matthews 10 days later (their mandatory waiting period for the adoption to take effect).
So please pray hard for us tonight dear friends. We're so close to our goal! If all goes well and our adoption is granted tonight, we will be able to bring her home soon! We're hoping to travel in early March.
