All Is Well

It's been a while since I've posted but the Fall was busy with finalizing paperwork.

We were DTC (paperwork sent to China)  11/13/14
We were LID (Logged into their system) 11/21/14
Then OOT (out of Translation)  12/4/14

Now we wait for a few months for China to do what they need to do for their examinations and approvals.
We have some more paperwork coming but I don't think it's super intense.
And of course we have financial things to take care of in the meantime.
(more on that in another post)
We are still hoping to travel sometime in April or May to bring our sweet Joshua and Emma home.  Yes they have American names finally. =)

We found out in August that Joshua was taken to Beijing for surgery on his foot.  We inquired again mid-Fall and he was still gone.

Today I got a precious email with a picture and a are my babies in China.

When I opened my email and saw this I cried.
Really no greater Christmas gift.

We're comin'
We're comin'

As I was having my "moment", a new favorite Christmas song came on the radio...

All Is Well

Indeed All Is Well.  
And the Birth of Our Savior makes it so. 
What a precious gift He has given.

Merry Christmas to all!
