We Are Out!!!

Yes, it is now confirmed!! I finally got through to our adoption coordinator and told her I had to heard it from the proverbial "horses' mouth." I am so excited I could scream!! (Okay, well actually I did scream. Maybe just a little squeal.)

She said the dossiers are no longer in her hands because they've already gone into legalization! There are absolutely no guarantees, but she told me what to expect time-wise for the next few steps before MOI ... no idea on the timeframe for MOI, but she said our documents should all be in order and there shouldn't be anything they need to request. Of course this is Haiti, where we should have been in IBESR only 2-3 months and 13 months later we are finally out. So again, no guarantees.

But the important thing is ... We. Are. Out.

Thank You, thank You, thank You LORD!!!

I'm going to have to check your side bar to find out what MOI is.

Can you estimate how long it could be if everything went perfectly?

i am happy for your wonderful news. For some reason I was thinking about your sitation either yesterday or today ...in the framework of God's timetable and it got me thinking of how God's timetable is perfect...and sometimes He shows us the purpose in the "delays" and sometims He never does...it made me thankful that His timing is perfect either way...please know that your shared story has been used in His hands to teach me more about Himself.

Smiling with you
