All systems are GO!

Drew spoke with Embassy officials in Monrovia this morning and got the long-awaited and positively great news that our adoption has been approved and our case is a "go!"

I can't even believe that I am writing those words after more than two, full years of being in process!

Since I last posted....
the boys' physical reports came back just fine.
the biological mother's death certificate was turned in.
the boys' birth certificates were re-printed for the fourth time---this time to correct our nationality.

I am to make my travel plans and then let the vice-consular know so he can reserve time for our exit visa appointment.

Once I'm there, and have the visas, the Liberian Minister of Justice will write a clearance letter for me to leave the country with the boys. We don't anticipate any problems in getting approval to do that, but since the letter can't be written until the visas are actually issued by the US Embassy, I'll just need to allow several days on the ground for the processing.


Can you feel me beaming through cyberspace???

I've got a call into the travel agent.....I'll keep you posted!

So excited for you all. What great news to finally get. Give ours a hug for us while you're there. We'll continue to pray that all goes well. What a relief if will be when that airplane door closes and you have both boys sitting beside you.
