Remember this post?
The day I was leaving for China we got a call from USCIS with a major paperwork snag. A snag of such proportion that it would take at least a month to rectify.
I prayed, I know many of you prayed. And our prayers were answered.
My agency called today and our application has been approved! If you can’t tell by that exclamation point, we’re jumping for joy around here! Go God!!
In honor of this fantastic news, I thought I’d share this adorable picture of our girl, one of her original referral pictures. How precious is she? That hair? Those pink lips? That knowing scowl?
Clearly, she’s as excited at the news as we are 🙂
Congratulations Stefanie and familie. Hopefully the rest of the proces will follow quickly and you get a travel date.
Have you decided with whom you are going to travel (alone, husband, daughter, sister?) Lots of luck with the rest of the preparations.
Love from the Netherlands, Kirsty
Love it!! 🙂 God is so, so GOOD! See, we need not fret the small stuff (nor the big)…because our Lord is BIGGER than any of it, and he has called us to cast our burdons and anxieties on Him, and He’ll take care of it! Oh, the advise I dish out! (I need to keep a log for my own faith renewing!!)
So happy for you!!
Blessings and Hugs,
Mom to my China Posse says

Lindsey's mom says
Great news!! We were fingerprinted today. 🙂 Hope we dont have any “snags”. Love the photo!
That is such GREAT NEWS! I’m so excited for you and know for certain it was the very hand of God, who loves the orphans more than we ever could, that intervened and cleared the way for you.
That picture is priceless! What a dolly!

That’s amazing news. So happy for you.
I don’t say this easily or often, but that face little Vivi is giving you is so like the “I won’t” face that Li’l Empress gives us. Me. With the little will of iron to back it up. Watch out girl 🙂
She even looks a lot like my Empress. . . those lips get us every time she puckers them up!!!!
So so happy for you! She is just precious!

Horray for Vivi (& everyone)!
Yahoo!! Can't wait to see that adorable little face in the arms of her Mommy & Daddy!!!
How the hell is it, when people are waiting YEARS to bring home children from China, that you guys are popping over there yearly and getting a new child? Are you buying them or something? Something ain’t right or fair about that to those who wait and wait and wait (and yes, I am including those on the SN list), and yet like clockwork you get another.
