Well, I know its been forever since we've posted, but its just been months and months of waiting "patiently"!! All the prayers and all the waiting, and now here we are! Our final Thai documents came in the mail today, and we turned around and sent them on to the Immigration office an hour later. Its been taking the U.S. government about three weeks to the day to approve I-800's. If we're lucky and they take a little less time with ours, then we'll be traveling for the October 6th board meeting, if not....then we'll have to wait a little and travel for the October 20th board meeting. We'll need to leave for Thailand one week before the board meeting is scheduled, so even if we aren't able to attend a meeting until the 20th....we'll still be leaving in about six weeks! Holy cow!! After almost two years of waiting....we're down to just 4-6 weeks!!! I still can't quite believe it!

We'll be blogging lots now, as we get everything ready for bringing Max home. At some point soon, we'll need to make the blog "private" so that we can post pictures of Max, and still follow Thai rules. We'll likely just assign everyone the same password and login name. That way we can just email it out and that'll just make it easier.

Thank you all for your prayers and awesome support through our journey. Now comes the fun part!!!!

I'm so happy for you!! We sent up a prayer of praise last night at choir practice.

Speaking of choir... I really miss hearing you sing! I hope things are going well at the new church, but I hope you'll bring Max over to Victory for a visit sometime after you get him home.
