We are Pre-Approved!

This week is ending with some happy news. Love Without Boundaries has arranged for Charli Grace to receive an eye exam in China. We also got our pre-approval from the CCAA. I don't have a cute photo to go along with this post, so enjoy the happy pandas.

Pre-approval is basically a confirmation that we have been matched with our daughter and are free to proceed with the adoption. Our next step is having our home study cleared by DHR in Montgomery, then it is off to the CIS office in Atlanta. From there our dossier goes to the Chinese Consulate in Houston, then to China. So there are quite a few steps in between Charli and home. Pray with us that our files will be given favor at DHR and CIS. We are going to petition for our home study to be expedited through both offices. My greatest wish is that we can bring her home before her 3rd birthday.

Love Without Boundaries is having their 5th annual Born in My Heart Art Auction. All proceeds from the auction go to healing orphaned Chinese children in need of heart surgery. They have done so much to help our daughter and hundreds of other children. Visit their auction and bid on one of their beautiful items. It will make your heart feel super happy.

"Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
