The Letter Came Today!

From my last post on the baby steps in the adoption process, you know we were waiting on the letter from the National Visa Center because this has to be faxed or scanned to our agency before they can proceed with the visa for Luke. Well......it came today! Praise the Lord! (Thank you for the prayers)!



Now on to the next step....the Article 5. This is an approximate two week wait from the time our letter is taken to the US Embassy for Luke's visa, which probably won't be until this Thursday (China time, and they're 14 hours ahead of us).

So now we wait............again. :)

Blessings,
~ Tammy ~

I am so happy for you! I know it does not seem like it is going fast for you, but it sure seems like things are happening fast to me.

I can't wait for the day when I check your blog and see you holding that precious little boy.

As you know, God is in control, and He is listening to all of our prayers.
