You came to Africa to find me, Honey. But I came to American to become one of you.
What a blessed, amazingly victorious day. I got in the car as we were heading home and felt like we had just gained a lot of ground in Hailee’s adoption. Finally now things can start to move forward as we begin the official paperwork to bring our precious daughter home. Our dossier needs to be put together in a rush, and Hailee’s visa must be applied for like yesterday.
Oh, I know many of you may wonder–during the interview I did get asked for any other passports in my possession. I gave them to the man. He looked them over and gave them straight back to me. That was it! I really thought they would be stamped with some kind of stamp to say that I could no longer use them, or something. But nothing.
I guess that just makes me a South African-Australian-American. Or an American-South African-Australian?
Yes, dear friends–a God of the impossible–that’s who I serve! In LESS than three months my citizenship has been granted.
How He loves, loves, loves Hailee.
Thank you to everyone single one of you who have stood with me in prayer, and support, as we journey to bring Hailee home. It means the absolute world to us.
Please, sweet Hailee, hang in there–your Mommy and Daddy got so much closer to you today! So much closer.
