Our LOA offically arrived on our doorstep today!Now they call it the LSC-Letter Seeking Confirmation. This is the letter that we send back to China that says YES!! We still want to adopt You Yu (Jailynn). Once the CCAA recieves the letter, they will send our TA (travel approval) in 3-4 weeks. We will then get our appointments made and get our travel dates and itenerary in 2 weeks. The goal is to travel before The Chinese New Year holiday so our potential travel date could be Febuary 19th!!! My stomach has butterflies and I have tears in my eyes to think that we will soon be in China and have precious Jailynn in our arms!
Now, I have to share with you a very intereseting thing that happened as I was reading over the LSC and the Letter of Rehabilitation and Nurturing to the CCAA. I notice at the end of the letter there is a TYPO that says Thank you for your KING consideration. I laughed at first and then I begin to wonder about the typo and had a revelation of sort:
I believe that the typo done by human hands was not a mere accident but I believe it to be a devine confermation to me from my Father God. I believe that it confirms that HE- The King, My King- is in control of this adoption and putting families together. God is the Author and Finisher, and He is in control of my life, He has confirmed our adoption of Jailynn from the beginning of time, He has woven the RED THREAD together that connects to one another long before we knew anything about it. He is in control of our adoption, the finances we need to complete it, and every detail. I try very hard to be in control of things and when every thing seems out of my control, well, I tend to panic. I have tried very hard since before Christmas to get a second job as a RN to save money for our travel and it seems every door has shut before me. I have been so frustrated wondering why I can't seem to get a second job in a profession that is in need of nurses. Well, maybe God has sonething to do with the closed doors. He wants me to trust Him with every fabric of my being and realize I am not the one in control of this. God is in control. My family and children need me at home, and I have to trust Him-The KING- to finish what He started in our family. He will provide the means to bring Jailynn home. I do not have the answer or solution. I just have to let go and let God. Wait on Him. Have Faith in Him.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. By it the Elders obtained a good report, through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, So that the things which are seen were not made of the things which do appear. Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He Is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:1-3,6

The rest of our family
In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!
