That's about it for the update.
Just kidding. I'll fill you in a little more than that, but really that IS the gist of things. We got fingerprinted last week at the immigration office. That was pretty cool. I got to see all those people waiting and applying to become a part of my country. Then I got to apply to bring an immigrant into my country myself. Nostalgic much? I think so.
Now we wait for the confirmation back from immigration. Our agency said to call and nicely remind them this week to please rush it for our boy. Then our stack of paperwork that we turned in at the beginning of September goes to the consulate in New York, then back to Michigan then to China!!! Woot. There will be cake on that day, my friends.
We received over $6,000 from that company hosting a fundraiser for us. Amazing. God is good. He always provides. We applied for a matching grant from Hand in Hand. We should hear something early next week. We also applied for a JSC grant. They have recently changed their process so I'm not holding my breath too much for that, but just the same am praying and praying that it will come!!!
We are also holding our breath for some updated pictures of our little guy. Hoping and praying to get those soon. That would be a breath of fresh air.
All in all we are doing well. We are learning patience and more patience and yet some more about patience.
