God is writing another story

God is writing another story. It starts with 3 Johnsons, a ministry to unwed mothers in Taiwan, 2 passionate God-loving ladies, an 18 year old girl and 1 tiny baby. Let's see where the story goes...

Adoption Update

I'm heading to bed after a long day, but here's a quick update:

~We found out today that our dossier paperwork has been submitted to court for a court date.  We should find out in 2-4 weeks when our first hearing is!

~I gathered all the documentation needed to apply for a change of country with USCIS.  We are currently approved to adopt a child from Ethiopia and need to have that switched (back) to Taiwan.  I'll mail that package out tomorrow after work.  I have no idea how long it will take for the approval to be changed; I just hope and pray I filled everything out correctly and mailed it to the proper USCIS office.  We have received conflicting information from several sources, so I'm counting on God to get it to the right place at the right time and done the right way!

~We found out that we need a new Power of Attorney document for His Hands.  It looks like our court case may occur when Holly and Trena are out of the country this summer.  So we are preparing a new document which gives their administrative assistant the power to act for us in court.  This means another round of county and state certification and authentication at TECO.  Such is the way of international adoption!  And I'm getting pretty good with it now! lol

~I have new adorable Selah pictures and 3 new videos to post soon.  You're gonna love it!

K, that's that.  TTFN!
