You have been shown these things that you might know the Lord is God besides him there is no other.

This Wait Might Just Kill Me
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? Well, we have been waiting 28 long days for our I-800 approval. With Molly, I had it back in less than seven so that makes 28 excruciating. Granted, many other families are waiting much longer than I have, and I trust God with this, but I am not happy about it. The approval was mailed a week ago from Missouri, and there is still no earthly sign of it. Everyday I call my dear immigration officer, and beg him to help me. When he returns my calls, he says it will come, and doesn't help. I send emails, call, and here I am still without a paper waiting. The good news is that the next two papers for the steps following this one are all ready to go. My letter arrived that my approval was cabled to the consulate in Guangzhou from the National Visa Center, but still no actual USCIS approval so I wait. I wait as patiently as humanly possible while a piece of my heart is on the other side of the world. If you all would have time, it would be a blessing for you to take this before the Lord for me. I just need that letter to show up! God knows how and when it will. Until then, I wait.
I am a Christ follower, wife of 20 years to my best friend, and a stay at home momma to five amazing daughters. I am currently waiting for one precious special needs treasure to come home from China. I am passionate about the orphan and special needs adoption. I love to teach God's word, am involved in youth ministry alongside my dh, and love,love, love cooking. Above all, I desire to serve God and surrender my life to His call.
