Luke 1:37 - For nothing is impossible with God.
That verse is so true. He has lead on us this journey and He has been there for me the whole time. I know He was there with me for Cassie's adoption too -- I just wasn't as good of a listener then. While I was whining Tuesday about not having our TA, it was being delivered to our agency. However, I didn't get the news until Wednesday after they were trying to get our CA (consulate appointment). On Tuesday I knew our agency had received TAs -- I assumed ours wasn't in the package since I didn't get a phone call or email saying it had arrived. Although I knew all this information and all signs pointed to no TA for us this week - for some reason I was still hopeful. And the verse above -- Luke 1:37 -- popped into my head at least 4 or 5 times during the day Tuesday. I knew there was a reason for that. There was something deep inside me -- no it wasn't something I ate either -- that was telling me not to lose hope. And we all know Who and What that was. God has my back - so to speak - on this journey and I just need to keep trusting in Him.
Now that we have our TA we need a CA too. Our agency is trying to get our appointment set for the 8th of February. As of this morning they still didn't have a confirmation....yet. Please pray with me that it will be here tomorrow morning. If or should I say when we get that confirmation I can book our flights that the travel agency has on hold for us. They are on hold until tomorrow. So tomorrow needs to be the day. That would have us leaving on Friday the 29th of January - or in 14 more days. Our gotcha day -- the day we get to finally lay eyes on our second little angel -- would be Monday February 1st. We need Chloe on the 1st as much as she needs us. She just doesn't know she needs us yet.
I'll update you all as soon as I know more. In the mean time please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
