Sweet Abe was up off and on all night.  The upside of that situation is it allowed me to check my email frequently throughout the night hoping to get an email from the embassy!  At 1:36 it came.  We had cleared.  Sweet baby girl can come home.

I cried.  Woke up Moody and immediately gave praise to the Lord for this amazing gift!  She is coming home.  We leave on Christmas Day, return the 1st.  What a perfect way to kick off 2012.

Thank you to those who prayed and encouraged us along this road.  Keep praying for those still stuck in the process.  It is hard! Adoption is never easy, but He is good and faithful to fulfill all in His timing.

2And the LORD answered me:
"Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.3For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie.If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

Habakkuk 2:2-3
