To Big Not to Share (Even at 12:26 am)!

Today we left for California to start our vacation.  We left pretty late, at about 3:30 pm, and at just about 3:45, I got a call.  It was from Amy, the liaison helping us figure out what is delaying our adoption approval.  She said had an update for us and had just spoken with Commissioner Clark, who is in charge of our paperwork (though I was told it was transferred, so I'm not sure what happened there).  After months of hearing nothing, I am sure you can imagine how excited we were!

Amy said that our paperwork was signed TODAY and as of today WE ARE APPROVED!

Wait, let me repeat that last part.  WE ARE APPROVED!!

Did you see me just do a happy dance, cry some happy tears, and say a very thankful prayer? 

It is only in the state of Arizona, meaning we still need to get approved in India, but we are so excited!  It is a big step forward, and now nothing will be holding our adoption up (well, until our paperwork gets to India, that is ;)).  We won't get the "official" paper approval for a week or two, since it still needs to go to another department, but I was told we are approved! 

Thank you for being here to pray for us, pray for our (soon-to-be) little girl, support us, and love us.  We are so very thankful to have so many people on our side rooting for us!  God is good..... WE ARE APPROVED!

I cried when I read this. Just flat-out cried. What a beautiful answer to prayer. We will continue to pray for your family and your daughter.
