The next piece of the DANIEL puzzle fell into place!!!


THIS  letter is what we have been waiting for for months................after the other  waits..................... THIS  LETTER   is what should cause  our adoption move forward to the issuance of an official adoption decree! THAT  step will enable us to send our packet to the Embassy for a visa appointment for Daniel and THAT STEP means I may travel to Liberia and
 BRING OUR TODDLER-BABY  BOY  HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We were without internet most of yesterday and a good part of today. This WONDERFUL piece of news sat in my inbox for quite  while before I knew it was there. The tiers of goose bumps which then resulted have not yet gone away!  I am still rejoicing and praising God  for sustaining Daniel all this time and rejoicing that we got this YES  YOU MAY MOVE FORWARD  nudge!!I called Charlie, sent emails, and called some close dear friends who had been praying so fervently with us, and I am still calling  and emailing! After the oh-so-clearly-closed door we recognized was in front of us concerning Junior and Diamoh, we were really praying over whether this too would be a closed door to Daniel's adoption, and if all three children were to remain children of our hearts  but not of our home. BUT NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This door IS  open, the hallway is shorter than it was before and the doors are open! I may hold a car wash or two over the next few weekends to help pay for Daniel's plane ticket (if he'd come home before his 2nd birthday we would not have needed to buy him a ticket. That date passed us by a couple of months)
 but DANIEL    IS   IS   IS    closer to coming home  and God will show us how to creatively fund even the "unexpected" costs!!
