Fingerprint SUCCESS!!!

Thank you for all the prayers for our fingerprint walk in attempt this morning.  They definitely paid off.  We entered immigration at 8:10 am and were greeted by two of the kindest security guards ever.  They had no problem with us being there weeks early for our appointment.  We were numbers 8 & 9 and were fingerprinted and on our way back home within an hour!

I shared with the guards that they were blessing us and definitely an answer to our (and your) many prayers.  About 30 minutes into our wait one of the guards came over to tell us how touched he was that people were praying and that they were part of our adoption journey.  I love how God uses everyone!

We are grateful to Kim and Eli for coming over at 7:30 to stay with the kids so that we could be at immigration early!

Thank you all again for the many prayers! Can't wait to get our "Golden Ticket" (immigration approval).
