The Day We've Been Waiting For
Yes, that is right. We received word from our agency today that they have been notified by the MoE that they have been reaccredited to work in Russia! We can hardly believe it. After all this time it seems surreal to us. Our agency will have their certificate 'in hand' on March 6th. We are SO excited that I can hardly put it into words. It has been a long 8 months to wait but now things are finally moving forward. We want to thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts and prayers. We could never had made it through this without you. Keep those prayers coming for a quick turn around on our release letter. Here is hoping that we can get A home around Easter. We'll update the blog as we get more information about release letters and travel dates for our medical trip. We're really bouncing off the walls at this point and going out tonight to celebrate this amazing news! Hang in there A, momma and daddy are coming soon!
CONGRATULATIONS! Will pray for a quick turn around on all the necessary preparations.

This info made my day!

PS: I was going to respond to your other post, I do know how you feel. I've been there. You don't wanna hear it.

PPS: I responded to your website one day and asked about the quilts. Are they still avail? If you are too busy, I understand. However if you are fundraising, I am interested.
