I feel like we’re getting close with Story. Closer than we’ve ever been before. I do know that the paper they’ve been requesting was turned in TODAY. That is great news! The next thing that will happen is I should get an email from them (USCIS) telling me we’re APPROVED. oh my goodness you will know when that happens!!!
Then they’ll send our papers to the Consulate and they’ll give us a Visa appt. I talked to our lady last night and she said lately they’ve been assigning them within a few days. SO … see we’re closer than ever. Our lady said she’s heading back up there tomorrow so she’ll see why our I600 hasn’t been approved. Hopefully they don’t need anything else.
I am overjoyed with the news of how close we are, BUT always in the back of my mind is my sweet boy Amos. Always. Our happiness when Story comes home will be laced with sadness that our boy is not ready yet. Please pray for him and his heart. If Story comes home before him he will have a hard time, and this morning I begged God to protect his heart and mind during that time. I prayed for discernment for the adults in his life. To speak love over him and for God to show them exactly how to handle the situation.
So … we’re getting close.
