Amazing NOC news!
I can hardly believe it's true . . . but we received an e-mail yesterday saying that we received NOC!
Early last week, our orphanage e-mailed to say that the state clearance board had mailed our paperwork to CARA, so we were prepared for a much longer wait. The shortest we expected was one month, as one recent family experienced -- so we were in shock when we read the e-mail from Jynger, our agency rep.
That means our NOC was granted in about ONE WEEK! Amazing!
Now our case will head into the court system. We have no idea what to expect about how long court will take in our city . . . one recent family's case was very fast (one month), but another agency sent word that it can take as long as 9 - 12 months.
So we are praying for another happy surprise, but prepared for anything . . . and thanking God for this awesome turn of events!
