Oh Happy Day!

Blessed be God—he heard me praying.
Now I'm jumping for joy, and shouting and singing my thanks to him.
Psalm 28 v 6-7

We just got word that our consulate appointment is April 2nd! That means Dave and Will leave in 6 days to pick up our daughter! In less than 10 days, Kate Emerson will be in her Daddy's arms and she will officially be part of our family (even though she already is in our hearts). I am crying with joy and excitement and gratitude to God, our agency and all of the support and prayers from everyone. I will post their itinerary here soon. You will be home for Easter peanut!


P.S. I found the above verse on another blog and thought it was most appropriate. Thanks Jane!
