It's been a little while since I updated you all on the progress of our adoption. Part of that is because of some delays that weren't expected. We thought we would get a travel date a little over a week ago, but then the country that we are traveling to had some closures of most of the public facilities due to that special illness that is going around. We weren't expecting to get a date for travel until after things opened back up in three weeks.
But...today, we got a surprise e-mail from our lovely facilitator that gave us a date for our appointment with the State Department of Adoptions. That is the appointment where we will get a referral for our little girl and from there we get to go and meet her and begin the process of bringing her home!
We will be traveling out the day after Thanksgiving and will have our appointment that Monday. It's getting closer! Ana, here we come =).
Now, a few of you might be wondering the status of our funds. We have been able to get a loan (through Handsome's 401K) that got us what we need to travel, after some other people blessed us with donations too. This loan is higher than what we can afford each month, but is the only option we had and I know that God will work it out one way or another. At first I was frustrated with a few things about that option, but then I realized that God was giving us an opportunity to continue growing our faith in His ability to make sure we have the things we need even after we bring Ana home. And really, that is a blessing. It's just hard to see that when you are frustrated with the first view of numbers that don't work.
