God has worked in some really miraculous ways during Miss C's adoption. Steps that were taking 14 weeks or longer have taken 4 weeks! Steps that have taken 4-12 months for others happened in less than 2 months for us! With these miracles comes the big bills. I know as miraculously as He is working through these steps to get her home, He will also provide financially!
Please consider giving this week to help cover the costs of flights! When we get to that point, I will have 3 flights to book (and hopefully a 4th, for my mom to come along and help!) Mack is saving eery penny he finds for his flight, then I have my own flight and Miss C's one way flight home. I likely will have only a matter of days to book these flights which ends up being much more costly that usual! Thank you in advance for your prayerful consideration!

There are many more steps to go that involve applying for her passport and the U.S. side of things with immigration and her VISA. When I got to this step with Mr. M., I felt like I was truly on the downward slide. We then got STUCK for a very, very long time in what is called MOI. Please, please continue to pray! My mind keeps fast-forwarding. I initially was told to not expect less than a year from my July trip. I have been secretly (and not so secretly) hoping maybe the end of April or early May....then I would take my leave and not return to school this year. At this point it is very possible it could be earlier than that!
Thank you Jesus for your miracles and moving mountains to bring my sweet girl home!
