Well.....I didn't see that coming.

Day 21

I think we just found out the definition of "The Most Rapid Process".
It's means fast.
Wicked fast.

Oh. My. Guhracious
we are really going to China
and we just may reach him in time.
Praise. Him.

We do have a few hiccups to overcome before we can speed down the proverbial and literal adoption runway but nonetheless it will be wheels up soon.

When the AF moves you in the midst of an adoption it takes a bit for things to catch up from here to there and so on and so forth and such and such.
But nothing insurmountable
and nothing that will hold us back for long.

We are telling Jacob and Joey tonight

Now where on earth did I put that travel agent's phone number....
and someone please pass me a paper bag....I think I'm hyperventilating.


  1. Woohoo!! That is awesome!! Can't wait to hear that John is on his way to your boy!!


  2. Great news! I'm so glad that reusing your dossier is working for you! We're leaving to meet our two Shenzhen 7 y.o. boys on the 24th :) Your son won't be far behind us!! Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations! My heart breaks for your son and his heart condition. I pray things go smoothly.

  4. Wowzers! That sure was "most rapid process!" Praying for your little guy to hang in there for you guys to get to him!

  5. WooooooooooooooHoooooooooooooooo!!! Happy dance!!! :) So excited!!! Only God. Seriously! :)

  6. Great news! I was wondering this morning if you would get it today. A lot of LOA's seem to come on Mondays. Do you have to go through the rest of the process? I800, NVC, and Article 5? Or can you go and get him, right NOW???

  7. AH! What in the world does ISC mean?! Something important, I just know it. AH! How soon do you think??? YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Wonder what kind of dynamite God used to move those powers that be? Ah well no matter it is great news.

  9. Sonja, I don't know if you have had his file sent to Boston Childrens? We live about 90 min. from there and my two heart 'babies' are seen there. A friend of mine just came here from Seattle after Seattle Children's told them they thought their newly adopted son from China was inoperable. Boston said they could do the surgery and he was operated on and back home in less than two weeks. I was pretty stunned by the different opinions from the two hospitals. Just wanted to throw that out there...and maybe you have already sent his file to Boston. :)

  10. Wow!! Great news...can't wait to hear more.

  11. Yes, I have room on my couch. :)) Let me know if you are coming up here. The doctors in Boston are amazing--but I know it would be difficult to have surgery so far from home.

  12. YES!!!! Rejoicing with you!!

    Joshua's rescue is in full force!

    Love you!


  13. Praising God on the other side of the USA for you boy!!!

  14. Sonia, make sure you contact the USCIS officer and get them to approve waiving the lockbox. It will save you two weeks! Praise the LORD!

  15. Incredible, awesome, amazing and wonderful!!

    Oh Yay yay! I am so so thankful!

    I just cannot believe that this sweet dear boy is coming home!


    and as for the dun dun dun DUN! We've had that too! trying to tell our older kids - ahhhh yes we are adopting again Dun DUn Dun DUN!
    No, not one BUT two!

    They'll get over it... sometime ;-)
    I know I'm so comforting!

  16. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahoooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

  17. Um, that "wahoo" was from me.

  18. I'm right behind you for my 7 year old GIRL miracle!!!! Logged in July 5- Got the call today - LSC is coming right behind yours!!!! GWCA is simply incredible!!!! It must be the perfect number 7 or something!!! wooooooohoooooooo

    Lori McCary
