We're Clear to GO

Rachel from AOH called last night to tell us the Embassy had given us the go-ahead to set an appointment with them in Liberia. This means we can travel to pick up the kids. I don't think reality will set in until we're in the air. In fact, Rachel probably wondered why I didn't sound excited when she called but I'll be excited when we meet with Alma at the Embassy to get the paper saying the kids can come to the US. Rachel if Abraham had his age changed after having the age test or not. The age test just determined that he was young enough to be adoptable. The airline tickets use 12 as the start of adult ticket pricing so we need to know what age all the documents have him as.

I've requested an appointment for the last week in October since Del is swamped with projects now. However, this adoption has been God's timeline forever so we'll see what really happens. :-)

Now I'm making lists and trying to get organized to go! Thanks for everyone's prayers and support over this long process.

How exciting for the Lang family! I've been following along. I think that it would be real for me, when I was on the plane with the kids, on my way to the USA. I am hoping for you that the process goes as smoothly as possible.
Warm regards,
Kim

Carolyn,

I just hopped on the Liberian Group for the first time in ages. I'm hoping to need the group again soon ;O) and I saw your good news. I'm so happy for you. Will be praying for your travel and smooth sailing from here on out.

Love,
Missy
