Praise the Lord with Us!!!!

Please join us in praising the Lord! His timing is perfect! His timing is amazing! His timing is NOT my timing! I am rejoicing greatly today!!! We received our 1-800A approval from Homeland Security! All in God's perfect timing, because you see...tomorrow, Glenn and I are going get new physicals as our became outdated in May. They can't be more than 6 months old. 

God knew all of these details you see. Because we need to get our dossier into our agency in Iowa asap, so that it can be sent for translation and then so that we can get our first trip date soon.  The dossier consists of about 16 items, to include our medical review, and many others. These need to be notarized and apostilled at our Secretary of State's office. So...guess what?? Our physicals are in Concord, NH and so we'll be right in the area of the Secretary of State's office tomorrow to get all of our documents apostilled, and now that we got our I-800-A immigration approval, we can package EVERYTHING we need together and send it out! Whoo-hoo! Wow! And you know what?? We also got a $100.00 donation check in the mail today toward our adoption, and know what?? That will more than cover the 10.00 per document apostilling charge for the 7 documents we need to do that with!

Man...I can't tell you how encouraged we are by God's perfect timing! Thank you Lord!!! So...we'll get our documents notarized in the morning at our town office, and then head to our homestudy agency and pick up a couple more documents from them, and then head to our physicals, and get our medical forms notarized and then head to the Secretary of State's office for the apostilling. Everything being within 10 minutes of each other! Wow! Thank you God, and even the money to pay for it!

2 Corinthians 5:7
"For we walk by faith, not by sight."

Thank you all for your prayers!
