Our prayers have been answered!

God is so awesome!  We have prayed and waited so long to make this announcement.  It has been years in the making...  I almost can't believe I'm actually making it!

We are overjoyed to be able to announce that we are adopting Ting Ting!!!!


We received our preapproval last night.  The next step is to wait for our Letter of Acceptance which takes about 2-3 months.  The journey's not over, far from it.  Our best guess is that we will be able to travel in about 5-6 months which puts us around September.

 We want to thank everyone who has been praying with us.  There's no way we would have made it without your support and prayers.  Please continue to pray with us that this part of the journey would be smooth and quick and that God would be preparing her heart to join our family.  

God is good!

You have longed and prayed for this child for years. Praise God for opening the door and allowing Ting Ting to come home! Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
Congratulations!
