our Golden Ticket arrives!!!!

Just when I thought the day couldn't get any better, God decided to bless us with yet another HUGE blessing. 

Our officer faxed our approval to our stateside team!  The final piece to our dossier...the immigration APPROVAL~  Oh my goodness!! 

Are you kidding me?  After waiting so long to get an officer this gal did our approval in lightning speed.

My head is about to explode, my heart is bursting with joy!  I cried such tears of joy today knowing that we have done what we need to do to get our little girl home. 

We have had this last document notarized this evening and will drive it to Topeka tomorrow to have it apostilled (after Aidan's Komodo dragon presentation at school, of course we can't miss that) then Alayna and I will high tail it to UPS and send our whole dossier to Dariya's country.

The "paper pregnancy" has come to an end.  The chasing, the notarizing, the calling, the faxing, the praying, the redoing, the praying, the calling, the praying etc.   

It is SO worth it and I haven't even met her yet.  She lives in my heart...

Now we will wait to be submitted to the SDA (court) and wait for our invitation to go and accept Dariya's referral and bring her home.  Oh and finish up our May 14th fundraiser so we can bring her home!

If all goes well we should be traveling in June.  We thank you for your continued prayers and ask that you continue to lift this adoption up and start praying for Dariya's transition (as well as ours) to our family.

Hold on Dariya, Mommy & Daddy are coming soon!
