What a start to our weekend!!!!
Our agency coordinator contacted us late yesterday afternoon with the news I've been waiting to hear.......our LOA (Letter of Acceptance) was signed on 3/24 and our agency received it today, 3/26 (in only two days)!!! We will receive it on Monday to proceed with the next step of paperwork! It was a total shock at that time because I would never ever expected it to come on a Friday based on how all the others have arrived, especially late on a Friday evening like that.
What IS the next step? Well.... we send in for our I-800 approval (with Immigration).....yes more Immigration paperwork. Then after we get that approval, it will be cabled onto the US Embassy and then we will be issued our Article 5. All of this is "Greek" to me. I learn about each step just a little before I get there. It's so much information to digest. All I know is that I pray through each step of the way! :)
Then we get our TA (travel approval)......and THEN WE GO GET LUKE!!!!!
Do you realize that our LOA came on Day 54?
I just want to say that this is most definitely an answer to prayer and I give God the glory! Thanks to everyone praying for us (thank you to Seth...one of the youngest prayer warriors out there praying Luke home)!!! We're over the moon happy (doing a few happy dances).....and it is so comforting and encouraging to know there are folks out there thinking of us, and praying for us! We would greatly appreciate your prayers that our paperwork from here on out runs smoothly too!
Thank you and Praise the Lord! :)
