It's Official!!!!

Praise God Friday the thirteenth did not bring bad luck for this family!!! Not only did my knee begin to feel better, but we were gifted with a couple adorable pictures of the twins' passports! Nothing has moved further than in my last update, but there is something about seeing the actual scanned copies of the passports that makes it all seem so much more real! We couldn't be happier that we have finally finished this lengthy step in the process.

So...drum rolll, please.....

It is with a huge grin on our faces that we let you all know that we are in the home stretch now. We will pass it on when we receive the final document that allows us to be submitted to USCIS for the immigration and Visa portion of the adoption. Should be 6-8 weeks more at that time! 

In the meantime, we will be continuing to nest at the DeWit household. I've power-washed the play set and am prepared to have it all beautifully stained before the twins come to play on it!!! We have a few things to hang up in their room...and some specifics on the plan for after they arrive home to figure out...and then we are set! Craig finished filling out the last two adoption documents that we needed to passport information to complete and all we can do now is wait! We will be sure to keep you in the loop when we hear something.

Continue to pray for healing for my knee and Craig's wrist. We are both feeling better over the last week and are anxious to nestle into our home with two little ones added to the mix! Also pray for continued patience in the remaining portion of the process and for the transition once they arrive home. All five of us are about to burst at the seams!

We love you all!
