On December 30, we received our Letter of Acceptance (LOA). This the long awaited document that demonstrates we are approved for the matching of our referral! Upon receiving this letter, we immediately signed the form and overnighted required documents back to our agency. The paperwork seems never ending!

We celebrated by going to eat! Later we both signed. It was a beautiful document to see our names on the paper and our daughter’s name on the document. When we signed, we knew the choice had become official.

I couldn’t help but think of my own salvation. The day that my name was written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. The day that my forever family was sealed because of Jesus’ blood.

On December 30 we signed a document which declared that we chose this child to join our family. Our of all the children needing families, this one we chose. 

We prayed a specific prayer for our child this day that someday her name would also be sealed in the Lamb’s Book of Life by the sacrificial blood of Jesus whereby we are adopted into His family!
