Woo Hoo!!!

A dear new friend of mine, Gina, whom I met in Guatemala on our first visit trip in August emailed this verse to me last night, "Be joyful always; pray continually; giving thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will for you in Christ Jesus" I Thessalonians 5:16-18. That was my focus verse today, as I am trying my hardest to stay focused on the Lord- and not the daily ups and downs of this adoption process.

One bit of news today is that DNA arrived to the Guatemalan Embassy at 3:40 pm. Woo Hoo!!! I guess we'll start our wait for visa pre-approval tomorrow. I read today that the PA wait is back up to 60 days. That stinks! That's 60 whole days where Bella sits in her orphanage and nothing happens with her case.

I better start thinking about that verse again!

Stacy,
Congrats on the DNA progress. That is one step down and just a few more to go. I am excited for y'all this week as you head back down to visit Bella. I can't wait to see some new pictures! I will be praying for you this week.
