Fingerprints...check.

Last week we received a letter from immigration telling up we could go get fingerprinted...yesterday we made our first (of many, I'm sure) trip to the immigration office to get our prints taken. It was actually kinda of cool...they took the prints electronically. They would smoosh each of your fingers on to this glass screen and they would appear on the computer...no messy hands, very cool. Now we wait for our approval to come from immigration telling us that we are approved.

We have our Gladney phone orientation next week...we can't wait to start moving again. We originally started this process in March and we kinda expected to be in Africa picking up our baby right about now...for some reason God wants us to go a bit later. After getting over the initial frustration and hurt, I am excited to see why God wanted us to wait...I know we are waiting for His best for our family and I can't wait to find out what that is.

God's ways are not our own.
His timing is perfect.
He is in control....just a few lessons I've learned over the last few years. He knows the perfect child for you and he's working things out His way.

God is NEVER late! He knows what he's doing. He is preparing you and your baby girl right now. Well done with another step. They all matter, don't they.
