"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

Day 17 & Day 74 - Waiting stinks

No real news, we are on day 17 of our wait for Tegan's official US immigration approval.  We should have it soon because imaptient me sent an email on Friday to check on it. I received an email back stating it is on our officer's desk so approval notice should come soon!!!  PTL!!!

As for Corban, we are on day 74 of our wait for official approval from China.  Average wait is about 60 days right now so I guess we got lucky with Tegan's only taking 55 days.  Now we get the other end of the spectrum with Corban. I asked our agency about the status of Corban's file and they said China has not reviewed it yet but once his status changes to "in progress" they would let me know and it shouldn't be long after that.  We will wait to see if we get notice of the change. Notice of LOA would be even better!

If we would get Corban's approval soon I would speculate to leave the end of October to bring the boys home but if it takes much longer than that it'll be November - praying we don't have to push it off even more. I want to be there and back before Thanksgiving but that appears to be iffy at this point.

Please Lord move Corban's paperwork along so we can get these precious boys home. They need the love of a family and the sooner the better!
