The God of Miracles!!!

HE DID IT! I just got a call from our adoption agency letting me know that we got our Travel Approval today!!! That was just over a week (it was suppose to take 3-4 weeks.) A few posts back I declared that I would brag about God all over this blog and here I am to declare that I truly believe God heard my cry and answered our prayer. What seems impossible with man is totally possible with God. So this is where I want to give HIM total credit.

Okay, so what does this mean? Our agency will now schedule an appointment with the Consulate in China. (They need us to have a TA in order to schedule the appointment.) Once the Consulate appointment is on the books we can make our travel plans. Our agency told me that there is a little group who all got their TA's today (although we may end up just meeting most of them at the end of the trip since we are planning to head straight to Quinn's province and skip the Beijing trip most people do) and that it looks like our travel dates will be July 22- August 6th.


3 WEEKS, people. I'm so thrilled. I'm getting my boy in July, just like I had hoped and asked for.


That means the Colorado trip that was off and then on again last week is now off again. (Just this morning I was letting myself get excited about going to the mountains, seeing friends and having a change of pace.) That'll teach me to try and be flexible :)
Thanks to those who have joined us in prayer. And to others who may be skeptical, I sincerely hope that Quinn's life will forever point people to the goodness of Jesus. This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!
