One Big Hurdle Overcome!
We awoke this morning and checked the email as usual. Only this morning we had wonderful news! One of the big hurdles we needed to overcome had just been accomplished. We received word from our agency this morning that we've gotten permission from the USCIS (Us Immigration) to proceed. We technically didn't qualify financially with them either since we don't live in the US and have a US based income. Although it is, no doubt, a good law as one should be above poverty level to adopt. However, seems there should be some exceptions built into it for just such cases. I guess though, we're not exactly normal! Anyway, we are praising and shouting! Now for the next hurdle on this side--China! Our paperwork with them was filed today. They also need to approve us and we should have the answer to that in a week or two. I'll keep you posted:) Keep this lifted up as it is a huge hurdle! If we are denied/refused--we're done and cannot proceed with this adoption. We're pr*ying for and believing for favor and expect to see it come to pass!!
