The Drivers License Arrived!
Yesterday the long awaited Drivers license arrived and Zach and I went down to USCIS in L.A. to get his fingerprint appointment and clear up what else was holding up our extension approval. It seems that the man who was processing our extension did not see Zachary's name in the original home study. As a result he thought this was some new kid we had just thrown in the mix, and that is why they were requesting an entirely new home study. I asked for my file and then showed him where Zachary was mentioned and talked about. He apologized repeatedly and then gave us an appointment for today for Zach to have his fingerprints taken. He said he should receive the results early next week and would process our extension as soon as possible so our trip is not delayed. Yippee!! Please pray all goes well from here on out.

It seems Zach's drivers license was delayed because there was another person with his same name that had several out of state tickets that were not paid. After several days on the phone they finally realized it was not my Zach and they released his license.

It just seems that we were not meant to make the Visa appointment on January 5th. I have no idea why, but I KNOW that God does. We are leaving on Sunday, January 17th on the journey of a lifetime. Exactly one month from today I will lay eyes on my beautiful babes for the first time. We are all so excited!

My friend Missy is in Ethiopia right now picking up her sweet little girl. She took presents for Levi and Amelia and is going to love on them for me. Of course, she will also take some pictures for me. I can't wait to hear all she has to say about them.

Thanks for all the prayers and words of encouragement I have received lately. Our entire family appreciates them more than you could ever know!

Oh my goodness. With international adoption, if it's not one thing, it's that darned other thing! So glad you got it all sorted out and moving forward to the right hands. I can't imagine - one month to go! Well, I can imagine, having done it a year ago. But to finally meet both of them?! WOW. ONE. MONTH.

Hang in there Julie ... you are almost there ... God had a plan and it will get revealed to you - or not - at a later time. Bottom line though: you guys ARE leaving very very soon!!!!!!! I am sooo happy for you guys. Hang in there, you are almost at the end of the journey!

BTW: I'm waiting for Missy's return too. Can't wait to hear the stories and of course maybe see my little girl ... Missy's getting pics for us too! God bless them!
