This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

BIG news (but not quite THE big news)

There are big things happening with our paperwork today and thinking about what it means for our family is causing a serious flow of adrenaline to rush through my system right now. 
 
We got two bits of news today.
 
(The Brazilian court is ready to approve us NOW but needs one more piece of paper from USCIS)  +  (Our USCIS caseworker called to say she finished processing our paper TODAY and is emailed it to us right away)  =   We could be applying for travel visas in just 3 or 4 weeks!
 
As my dear friend Michelle said earlier today, "There lies the finish line... I can see it."

Oh, Kim, how amazing to see each of these steps bringing you closer to your kids in such concrete, immediate ways! I am starting to really wish we lived closer to each other. :)

Wow, that's awesome! I'm so happy for you guys.

P.S. The word verification in the comment field was "ingshing." Weird huh?

YAY God! It gives me chill bumps to see God work and know that the path He's taken you has given Him so much glory.
