“The Pink Slip”

Yesterday we received a “pink slip” from USCIS.


I’m here to tell you, this is not something you are wanting or hoping to receive during an adoption process.

Not at any point during an adoption process, but most certainly not this close to the end.

It may or may not bring tears. Just based on my own experience.

But adoptive Mama’s are kind of wacky that way. Tears, and all.

So thankful that the Lord’s mercies are NEW every morning!!

Because HIS PLAN WILL PREVAIL. And I simply love that truth!!

Not too long after I raced to town yesterday, to Fed Ex, to correct the problem with some overnighted mail, I received this photo from sweet friends and awesome prayer warriors.


They had no clue what was going on in our world yesterday!

Don’t you love how God works that way?

Me too.

I also love how God put a police officer right in front of me the whole way to town.

My own personal escort, within the speed limit, he, he.

And then God had a friend stop by late last night with her two daughters, and we had six arms of support all around us. Praise be.

We will be trying our best to get through to our USCIS Officer today!

With one thing on our minds the whole time.


We love you, buddy. And we will see you at God’s perfectly appointed time!!

Will you stand in prayer with us and for us?!

    We serve a mighty God and He is more than able to work out all the details of bringing Tate home. Thank you for sharing all the little praises yesterday! It shows your heart for God.

    We love you all and will be in prayer with you.

    It’s a bump in the road for sure…or is it? We must surely know that ALL things work together for good for those who love God. Once again my favorite verse is so pertinent at a time such as this.
    Hope deferred maketh the heart sick, but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12. Love you..Praying on…
