New Blessings!

It's been awhile since I updated Sophia's Blessing Quilt blog, but today we have reached 25 blessings! Check it out here! We are trying to reach at least 100 blessings/fabric pieces, so feel free to participate if you would like. The information is all on this post!

Today we received our official summons to retrieve our "biometrics"...or in lay language, fingerprints. We are to appear in mid-June at an office in York County to take this next step towards Sophia. Imagine if they made all parents jump through these hoops...I bet we wouldn't have so many unwanted pregnancies in this country...oops...that's for another post!

Whatever it takes until Sophia is home...

Way to Go, Big Brother Sabastian!

I am SO proud of my 11-year old son, Sabastian. This weekend he took it upon himself to go around our neighborhood and sell more of our fundraising sub tickets. He was able to make almost $250 for Sophia's adoption fund in a few hours of roller blading around the neighborhood. Way to go, Sabastian!

I can't wait for Sophia to meet ALL of her big brothers...

Immigration Paperwork...Check!

We made it to Philly and back today, but not without A LOT of drama! You can read about it on our family blog here. But the immigration paperwork is filed, and for that, we are thankful. We are one step closer to bringing Sophia home from Taiwan. Now we wait for the letter stating when and where we get fingerprinted, and after that, we wait for our actual document stating that we have been approved to adopt an orphan and bring her into this country. How exciting!

Until Sophia comes home...

Next Step

Next week we take another major step in our journey to Sophia in Taiwan...our immigration paperwork appointment! We are scheduled for Wednesday in Philadelphia, so pray that all goes well and that I remember everything I'm supposed to take with me! We are praising the Lord for the monies needed for this step ($800) and still praying for more monies to come in so we can keep moving forward.

Thanks for your prayers on Sophia's behalf!
