A lot has happened in the last two months. We submitted our agency fees at the beginning of January and began our homestudy. Those are the two things that truly get the adoption process moving. We received our completed homestudy this week and mailed our I600A form to USCIS. Basically, Homeland Security approves us to bring orphans into the US. And yes, you read it right! Orphans! We are adopting siblings!
Our journey has been God led and it has been awesome so far. I cannot even begin to imagine how incredible it will be to get our little ones home! We are waiting on medical profiles of a sweet sibling set and will keep you updated.
These children have changed our lives and they aren't even home yet. I have always read that happens in adoption stories. It is a totally different thing to experience it, though. It has been so sweet!! God has truly blessed us and I am so amazed at His love every day!
Another change: our whole family will travel to Ghana! We prayed diligently and decided to once again step out in faith. This is the "trip of a lifetime" and we want our three children to be able to experience it. We have seen them change so much over the last few months. All three of them are ecstatic and even begged for us to adopt siblings. (Obviously, God did the leading, not our precious children!) Three weeks ago, we applied for our passports and TODAY we received 2 of them. Obviously, that was very fast. Typical wait time is at least 4-6 weeks.
Lastly, we have an unspoken prayer request. This is very important to us and we are unable to share the details, but God already knows. So, please join us in prayer!
We are having a fundraising garage sale March 26 and 27 with another family that is adopting from Ghana (so excited about that). If you have anything you would like to donate, please let me know. We will pick it up! Thanks!
