Inch by inch

Girls selling jewelry in Delhi during our 2007 trip.
 
Yay!  On Friday, we heard from the U.S. embassy in Delhi.  They'd received our I800 application for a new immigrant (a.k.a. our daughter!), and sent us a form to fill out.  I think it's called the DS 230-9#854-#$(%( QR4-727, parts I and II. 

I'm kidding.  But truly, after a while, all the form names sort of meld into one in my brain!  Fortunately, Jynger (our lovely case worker) sent me detailed instructions about how to fill it out correctly, and we sent our form right on back to Delhi, along with our one and only photo of K.  I have huge paranoia each time we fill out government forms . . . I don't want to fill in one blank incorrectly and thereby set our travel back by precious days or weeks!

But mostly, I am savoring each time an outside entity acknowledges that we will be bringing home this sweet girl!  Inch by inch, we are moving forward!

Yay! Inch by inch! Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your kind words on our blog. Coming from someone who knows what it means to "wait" means the world to us. Thank you for chiming in and giving us your input. Your words seem to ring truer than anyone's...Oh and beautiful picture of the 3 girls!

Yay! Correspondence to India and back! Great news and progress. How nice it must feel to know that people on both sides of the pond are on the same page about the same baby girl!

Cool!

Every communication is precious. Praising God for this great news and praying for the doors to flung open so you can bring your little daughter home to her family soon.

Hi, We are just in the beginning stages of adopting from India and I read your comments on Renae's blog, so I decided to join your also. We don't have a blog yet, but I may start one soon. We just live over in Eastern Iowa, so not too far from WI. Nancy, I know just what you mean about praying for our children to feel the presence and love of Jesus even before we are there to comfort them, I do the same thing. I also pray for the birthmother everyday and pray that the Lord is keeping her and the babes safe if she might indeed be pregnant with them right now. I really enjoy seeing everyone's progress and it won't be long til you are where Renae is right now!
