We received our approval letter today in the mail! The United States of America has approved us to adopt Makayla!!!

We are finishing up our dossier and plan to have it sent within the next week or two. YIPPEE!

We are feeling very excited as we move closer and closer to meeting her and bringing her home!

God is amazing! We shared our 16th wedding anniversary on May 1st. We chose not to buy anything or do anything for our anniversary because we are saving every dime to bring our little girl home. Our approval date is May 1, 2012. We received the greatest present from God on our anniversary.


  1. Congratulations!! That's a wonderful present! I know exactly how you feel right now :)

  2. Congratulations on getting your approval! We're praying for ours this week too!

  3. God bless you. We are trying to get to the commitment stage with RR. God will supply all your needs -- He is working!

    1. How exciting! We will keep you in our prayers!

  4. Happy Anniversary! I am so happy for you. What's next?
