What an absolute journey this has been. I have never been so obsessed, depressed, anxious, happy and sad all at once. I knew in the beginning of this process that if I didn't have 100% faith in the Lord we wouldn't be taking this journey. The lord has been right there with me every step of the way and continues to be this very moment. I've prayed for so many things. I've prayed for something small to get me by that particular day, and the lord delivered. I prayed for patients and calming and the lord delivered. I've prayed to be out of PGN, and back in PGN and out of PGN and the lord always delivered. I've prayed for so many families and their beautiful babies to make it home to their forever families, and the lord is delivering. I will never stop praying.

Over the last week or so I've been calling PGN obsessively, but haven't been able to get through. I just knew that the lord had something planned for me, what it was boggled my mind. I told myself I would stop calling, but I couldn't. I know it is all in GODS time. So, none-the-less, I called again this morning and got through immediately, actually, I did listen to about 30 seconds of music. I think it was Celine. Laura got on the phone and told me "I have good news for you, your case is signed and approved". What, what did you say!

I then spoke with our agency who said that we would need to wait for the case to be released. Wait, again. It could take a day or a few weeks. All on GODS time.

I'm so overjoyed knowing that we are approved. The next step for those of you who don't know is, new Birth Certificate with our last name, passport and DNA test. All this could take 5-7 weeks. You could only guess what I'll be praying for know. Lord, please bring our daughter home for her 1st Birthday.

Thank you all who have been so supportive.

We are OUT, OUT, OUT, OUT.
