Birth Certificate and Passport!!!

Yesterday was a marathon for me. Let's just say, we left home at 8:25, ran hither and yon, and got home at 3:10. I had exactly 1 hour to mow as much lawn as possible. I ran in the house at 4:10, checked the email (of course :-)), and found two emails from our agency. Both emails said, "We're sorry. We still have not been able to find out any more information on your case." I jumped up from the computer to run out the door to pick up TE from classs. My cell phone is ringing...

It's our agency!!!!

She's gushing the words out..."I just got off the phone with R__! He has your Birth Certificate and Passport and he's going to submit you to the Embassy tomorrow!" "You should be able to travel to pick up Cupcake within two weeks! (Insert many thank-yous, congratulations, ya-hoos and oh-my-words here!)

The phone was not even hung up yet and my land-line phone was ringing! Guess who?

It was Daddy S! He called at the exact moment I wanted to tell him the news! I practically shouted the news to him and told him I'd call him back on my cell, because now I was really late to pick up TE - and I had to get home on time, because the crazy marathon day was not over...

...I won't mention the part about hitting the garage with my mirror as I was backing out while talking...

...Well, I got home at 8:30 last night, exhausted and happy. Very happy!

Today, my heart is singing praises to the Creator - the One who put this desire into our hearts, the One who has orchestrated this entire journey, the One who loves Cupcake more than we'll ever know. He deserves all the praise. Thank you, Jesus.

Blessings to you,
Mamita
