YAY! I literally just got an e-mail from my social worker saying that I am approved by the Peruvian Governemnt to adopt! :-) But, let me tell you this story.... it is pretty neat how it unfolded.... I was online checking e-mail and my social worker e-mailed me to let me know she would be out of country for the next week and a half and who I should contact if I needed anything. So, I e-mailed her back and of course wished her well and let her know that I was good, except I was anxiously awaiting the approval from the Peruvian Governemnt. Before she could even respond to my e-mail, within seconds, she received an e-mail from Peru stating that I HAVE BEEN APPROVED! Now, let me just tell you, that is a Good God! :-) I had mentioned to her that God was teaching me about waiting (which, as most of you know, I am NOT good at!) and a couple of days ago, I was just having an anxious day of wanting to know my approval status.... well the devotion for that day was about WAITING! You have to love it when God is funny, yet gives us just what we need, when we need it! Well, that is what happened tonight! :-) How cool is that?!?
Thank you all for continuing to pray. Please also pray for Allison (my social worker, as she travels this week) and for the referral process as it is the next step! I will continue to update as soon as I know something more!
