(Praising the Lord)
I am still in shock! We cleared Embassy in EIGHT DAYS! For those of you who don't know, that right there, is a miracle!
Usually once you get submitted to Embassy, it takes a couple of weeks for them to get to your case, then they request interviews or phone numbers to investigate that our child is truly an orphan. It takes months.
So Wednesday night, one week after we were submitted, it seemed odd to me that I couldn't sleep. I literally knew the Lord was telling me to stay up and pray. I prayed until 3:00am. I think I dozed from 3-6 and then was awake again to pray. I knew that our night time is their day time so when we did get "the email" it would be in the morning. At 7:30am I woke up Jonathan and asked him to check his email. I just knew it would be there. After all, the Lord had kept me up all night :)
I was super disappointed because I felt like I read the whole situation wrong and maybe it wasn't the Lord, maybe it was my anxiety or that glass of tea I had too late. It was weird though because I had been so confident that the Lord was doing something awesome!
Exactly two hours later, my phone rang. The siren went off. (Our case worker's ring tone is a siren.)
They didn't email us for some reason but we cleared. In EIGHT DAYS! It really is a miracle.
I still can't believe it. We leave Wednesday to go get our son and BRING HIM HOME.
Thank you so much for your prayers and your support. We can't wait for you guys to meet our son!
