This morning I woke up to an email from Immigration that confirmed they have received our application. This is excellent! We will receive an appointment letter in the next 2 weeks to have more fingerprints taken in the upcoming weeks. After that we will wait to be assigned an officer and they will either ask for more information from us or they will approve us. This is possibly the longest process ever. It could take 6 weeks or 3 months. Let's pray for the smoothest, easiest process possible. I'm praying we have approval by June 1.
So receiving USCIS approval is our second to last step. After that approval our team will submit us to the courts to petition to adopt. That's it! Yay! This also means that time is quickly closing in for our fundraising efforts. We still have about $12,000 to raise/earn. That is a lot of money, but I'm holding on to our faith. We know God will provide, but it does get a little heavy thinking about it. Please continue to pray for us and share our need. We will continue our own saving and scrimping and fundraising, but now is the time that I ask you all to give if you can indeed spare a little. If you can not, we understand. Would you be willing to share our need with those you know? You never, ever know who is listening.
There is a direction donation link for us through Reece's Rainbow, which means all donations are tax free! Just click the pink donation button and you can easily give through PayPal.
Thanks to those hanging in there with us!
