So many things have happened in 147 days. So many have prayed, stormed the Heavens, fasted. Knowing in His perfect timing it would, indeed happen.
And it HAS. We are THRILLED to announce we have been given ---(drum roll please)
LOA (Letter Of Approval) MOM
This means we check off and sign that we accept this child (Of COURSE WE DO) and then we send off this paper along with other forms to the next step. Depending on how long the next few steps take we are looking at late December travel? Not too thrilled on that one, but again, GOD'S timing.
Gonna trust HIM in this 100%.
Please give a shout out, even you lurkers, I wanna hear from you ALL------
Because today is also the day I received word that my last surviving grandparent, my wonderful, God loving grandmother (mom to my dad) who turned 100 years old this August passed away today, and I'm betting she had something to say about the 147 day wait---- as in "Get that moving there, my Lord, this girl needs to be HOME."
See her there in the middle? Surrounded by her surviving sons, her grandchildren, her great grandchildren and that baby beside her-- her GREAT GREAT grandson. We live on Grammy, we live on. Enjoy those streets of gold, being with my dad again, being with your husband, long gone- again, and most of all, being held by the Heavenly Father who loves you beyond measure. I'm sure you are soooo incredibly happy up there:)
We'll be looking to do some fundraising for the next part of this journey, I'll write more on that soon enough, for today, we celebrate 2 fold--
My Gram is HOME
