We FINALLY received our CIS approval....our very last piece of paperwork and approval needed. We are as official as possible and so excited to be getting close to bringing children home. While we received the CIS approval well within a normal amount of time, I am so thankful not be stalking the mailman anymore:)
The kids knew that we were waiting for one last piece of paper. After checking the mail, I told them we got the paper we had been waiting for....so now that the people in Ethiopia can look for their new brothers or sisters. Our tender Caleb said, "That makes me want to cry" and he was teary and Hannah was squealing....and I started crying. Beau was excited too....quickly taking care of the final notarization and fed ex to Kate! Beau's comment...."Nat, I guess this means you won't be checking the mail anymore." I never checked the mail before, and I guess I am done now:)
The kids and I prayed after we got the letter....thanking God for His delivering this awesome news to us today and for His sovereignty in our lives.
