Eli's coming home!!

We got the call tonight around 9 from our agency!

T H E C A L L ! ! !

Ch*na approved us for our little boy - we are all sooooooooooooooooooooo excited and happy here. As Ted, Kevin, and I were making our calls to our family to tell them the good news, each of us on a different phone, we looked over at Philip and noticed he was pretending to make his own calls. He was jabbering away excitedly about Eli coming home. It was so cute! One of those priceless moments!

Our agency told us the message from Ch*na said we had been accepted but that they do not accept families with any cancer history. And yet, we were accepted!! God is good! He did what He said He was going to do. Eli, you are coming home!

Hi again! Did you just receive Pre-approval or was this your BIG approval (LOA)?? I'm kind of confused by your time line. What is your LID?

I'm just trying to figure out if we might be getting a call soon too! :)

I just sent you a separate email...but wanted to post on here that I am thrilled beyond measure! I told Dw and he was pumping his fist in the air and getting all choked up saying, "go God!"
We know that Eli has a very special plan and that God is going to use him, as well as your other sons,Ted and Philip!! And that Kevin, dear friend, was healed from cancer for "such a time as this". =) Oh yeah - what a wonderful way to spend your life!!
How we rejoice with you!! Yipppeee Jesus!!! xo

Emme wants to know if this means Kevin will be too busy to lay on the floor with her in the future?
