Outcome

We passed court! All thanks to God---and everyone He works through to make these miracles called adoptions happen.

It appears we will be offered an Embassy date of January 13. Because we will do some traveling in-country before our court date, we would leave the first week of January.

The next prayer need is for USCIS (United State Citizenship and Immigration Service) to move on our paperwork! We haven't even received our fingerprint appointment yet.

If we don't have Bereket's immigration paperwork in time, then our Embassy date would be January 27, which means we would leave around the 20th.

We are rejoicing today!!!

Who are we? said...

Congratulations! I have been following your family with interest. Our family will have our dossier into IAN by the middle of December and we plan to adopt a toddler boy, too. We have 4 children currently ranging from 13 to 6. I have appreciated the glimpse into your family. I found myself awake last night praying for your case. Good-luck and thank you for sharing! Alicia
