I-797 APPROVAL Yippeee!

…Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. —James, James 4.2b NLT I heard this verse in my head yesterday, and I felt that I have not been praying sufficiently to God, for our adoption needs. Last night while praying, for my husband and son and their upcoming trip to Haiti, I also began to pray, for our I-797 approval. I woke up this morning and could not believe my eyes, when I saw an email from CCAI- congratulating us; on our USCIS approval, nothing had come in the mail yet? Sure enough after the email, the letter of approval was in the mail. Sigh-Hallelujah. Time to get two eldest men (hubby and Frederick) are setting off for Haiti tomorrow at 4am, it will be my son's first missions trip. I pray they will be safe and that this tropical storm will not affect them. Please keep them and the rest of the missions team in your prayers. All that is left to do now, is to get our original home study copy and I 797 certified and authenticated as well as the other docs that had errors on them. Then we'll be off to China soon enough-God willing...friends of ours are still waiting for travel dates and we're hoping to get caught up with them and travel soon as well;) We'll need 6 visas for China-since we are planning on taking the little ones along with us for this adventure!

Great news! That is wonderful about the Haiti trip! We originally started our adoption with China but switched due to the wait time. Now reading your blog, I want to go to China!!!!
