"Congratulations!!!! Your dossier has received MOI approval! Your passport will now go for printing."
The moment I read those words I was stunned. I'm not sure why I was checking my personal adoptive family page on the FHG website, it wasn't yet time to get an update for July. But yesterday, I clicked on it, expecting to see June's update.
I was stunned silent for a few seconds as the words sunk in...."Your dossier has received MOI approval..." I think I may have gasped. But then my heart jumped out of my chest...IT'S REAL!
So now I'm planning, finally planning. I haven't let myself. Well, maybe a little. But each time felt let down with the long wait. I guess not planning was my way of protecting myself from disappointment.
I know that we aren't totally out of the woods yet...mistakes and misspellings can slow things down with passport printing and getting a visa. But I can finally, finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Now we need to think about how to get him home. We need to do some fundraisers and do them fast. We had money at the beginning of spring to bring Cal*rbe home but needed to use it due to Brad's hours being cut back. We are thankful he still has his job. But now we are ready for fundraising...ANY IDEAS?
Jesus, all I can say is thank you...it feels so inadequate but there are no words to express my heart right now....THANK YOU! TERRY
