But when we thought we wouldn't be able to use the travel voucher from my husband's work ... I just let it go. I knew God would bring things together. I can't will anything to happen.
So we stopped waiting.
Supervising Daddy build the new bunk bed.
I had been "watching the pot" if you will, and nothing was happening. So I stopped. Emotionally, mentally, I stepped away. And we did things. Things that I couldn't check my email while I did them.
Meeting new friends in the Petting Zoo.
Sure, when I knew a meeting was happening in The Country Across the Pond, I would get excited, but it didn't keep me up at night.
A new Dreamer is awakened.
Then this past week, I saw several families who were a little behind us post how they had received the first part of the two-part process: the verbal referral from the referral granting committee. It has to have the signature from the over-seeing minister, but that usually takes 2-3 weeks.
A little discouraged, I asked my agency to check on our status.
We have received our verbal referral! And we received it LAST WEEK!
The finished product! My husband is so handy.
This means we could get a signature within the next 2 weeks, and it pretty much guarantees late January travel! It also means we can use our travel voucher from work!
Baby it's cold outside.
As we prepare for this trip, I would appreciate your prayers. This will be our first time to fly out of the States, so I'm a little nervous!
