WE MADE IT!!!!

WOW!! That is about all we can say at this moment - after a year plus some (1 yr., 4 months, 2 weeks, and 5 days to be exact) we are NOW OUT OF REVIEW!!!! In adoption lingo that means we have been checked over by China, we weren't asked any questions, so we made it through!!! This is a BIG step - one that took only MONTHS last time around. SO sad, but yes, SO true! But we found our yesterday that we are through. Now, China is only a year behind in referrals - how depressing is that - if they keep us the same pace they are doing now AND DON'T SLOW DOWN A BIT, we are scheduled to get our referral exactly a year from now. I pray things speed up - but I do know Who is ultimately in control and I hang onto that!

But praise God - another big hurdle reached!!!
The first picture is the CCAA building where our papers are right now.
The second is where they match up our paperwork/Dossier with our next little one. So this is where our papers are sitting IN A VERY BIG PILE right now!

Being out of the Review Room is BIG, Becky!! Hang on to any positive that you can. Praying here that things will speed up, but as you said, it's in God's hands.

Anyway...congrats on moving ahead!! :)
