Pardon me while I Happy Dance!!


Today we received the following e-mail from Valentina...

Hi, Heidi!

I’ve got your invitation letter – your
appointment date is November 10.
We’re ready to answer all your
questions about your upcoming trip.

Best regards,
Whoo-hoo, it's official! We are going! Time to start making plans for real. Thank you to all of our friends and readers who have given us much needed encouragement and support these past few weeks. All of our prayers have been answered. Now the great adventure begins!

Hip, hip, hooray!!! I praise God for this! And hey, it was timely, too--right at that 20-day review mark. I'm impressed. ;-)

Happy dance!!!

Woo-hoo! Happy Dancing with you :)

Heidi, I just emailed you a response to your questions. Let me know if you have any others.

We're thrilled for you!

Much better timing than last year. Our dossier was submitted on August 20th, we didn't hear the appointment date until over 8 weeks later!!! Then our SDA appointment was on December 12. We spent five weeks in Ukraine, the first trip. I'm sure you can guess we were there during Christmas.

Since your appointment is in early November, you will more than likely be home by Christmas:)


Amy said...

That is sooo exciting! I am so happy for you to finally get your date!


Karen said...

Yeah!! Thanks for the phone call-- it was great to hear your news! :) Just let me know as your plans come together...my home is waiting for you guys. Will be praying for all the details to come into place!

I am jealous!! Just think, all the family home for the holidays!

Rolan, Eileen, Josh and Ransom said...

Ahhhhhhh! So that was the fireworks I saw! I'll be counting the days with you!

Stephanee&Zach said...

That is SO awesome!! Maybe we will be leaving about the time you come as we got about 10 days notice!!! We leave next Tuesday with an Oct 2 appt. So exciting!

Mark and Kim said...

YES!!! I love it when I hear that older kids have a family coming to get them!!! And you have some time to plan and get ready too - which is nice. But you'd probably be okay with an appt tomorrow after all this wait huh?
