a little news means a lot

We received some news today! Our agency contacted China Center of Adoption Affairs to find out what is happening with our file. In brief, they have requested one of our many documents be updated, thankfully just one! The Ontario Ministry has been contacted and they are kindly rushing this through for us. So that being said, it looks like we have about another two week wait before we get the letter seeking confirmation, which we sign and send back. Then we wait approximately six weeks before travel. There is still a possibility we will travel late November. It is hard to explain, but I feel like a burden has been lifted.

Isaiah 26:3 - Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.


  1. This is good news Jill & Colin, very encouraging!

  2. Oh, this journey is so hard. I know how your heart aches to hold your beautiful, precious Lilah. Keep strong.

    November is a wonderful time to travel to China -- it's cool on the Great Wall, but that's about it. Guangdong province is shorts & t-shirt weather all the time!

  3. Oh Jill, I keep checking this blog several times a day. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. Lilah Grace is an absolute beauty! She is such a blessing and I cannot wait to lay my eyes on her! Saltanat and her will be fast friends I am sure it just may be hard for Salta to keep her hands off of all of the lovely things that you have acquired for Lilah...hehe
    Counting the days,
    Pam, Grev & Salta xoxoox

  5. Sounds like you are very vlose to holding and cuddling .That snugglie is just waiting. I am on the prayer rush for you.
