Joy comes in the morning

Yes, it's true.
OUR TRAVEL APPROVAL HAS ARRIVED!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you all for your support and prayers.  I appreciate it so much.  I can't tell you how much of a relief this is.  (Though maybe you can guess.)

But I can't get off my knees yet.  (That's kind of how this adoption has gone.)  We now need to get our consulate appointment and then all the travel dates are based off of that.  Our agency says they have two options they can apply for.  The first one would have us leaving the first week of March, the second option is leaving late in March and returning after Easter.  Obviously, this is not ideal for any number of reasons, but we are willing to make it work if we must.  But, oh, how much I hope it is the first date.  

Since we won't know for sure until early next week, I'm just going to enjoy knowing that I will be buying plane tickets soon.

Thank you Jesus!

Josie is doing great! She is loving third grade. We moved 2 1/2 years ago to a small town north of seattle and have been so blessed the best little school. She has had three amazing teachers in a row that have included her in their class and allowed her to be as "typical" as possible.

She started this year in a special needs competitive cheerleading group and has just blossomed. She is the youngest on the team and so she gets to do a lot of the "flying" and as much as it is scary seeing her up in the air, she loves it. (this whole cheerleading thing is not something I ever imagined being a part of but she is happy so I am happy)

She has changed so much since bringing her home. She is such a good, sweet girl (that I always knew she could be). She is easy going and great big sister. She loves dogs and loves getting to boss our dog around.

I love reading your blog. I look to it everyday. You are such an encouragement and an inspiration. I can't wait to follow you on your trip to get H. We will be praying for you and your whole family.

Blessings,

Molly
