Favorable Determination

According to B, our case manager, we are officially "paperwork ready" for a referral! Yep, we got our Favorable Determination Letter last weekend while we were enjoying the holiday with family. Happy Thanksgiving to us, we got our FDL only 2 weeks after our fingerprint appointment! Our fingerprints will expire in 15 months and our immigration approval expires in 18 months... let's pray we don't have to worry about that and can have our baby home before then! (These dates matter for the second trip, where we have our embassy appointment).

I know this may not seem like a big deal to those not in adoption-land, but for us it is a final check on the to-do list! Thanks for praying with us through this journey to our baby. God is so faithful!
