One Month

This day marks ONE month since we found out Li-Xuan is our Anna! We submitted our end of the paperwork at lightening speed, but, as we all know ~ that doesn't mean it makes it all the way to Taiwan in lighetning speed. Unfortunately, we are the only ones motivated to move fast and it seems from our Agency to State of Oregon to Taiwan Consulate is not as motivated to MOVE fast. I know they have other people to deal with and make happy so they'll move as fast as they can, but if only they knew how important it really is for us to move on with the court process ~ If only they took this as seriously as if they were trying to bring their own child home, I think the process would/could move quicker. In my mind, there is no excuse for ONE month of waiting to submit our dossier....

That said, I know that ultimately God is in charge and even the timing of this is under His total control.

We love her so much already and it pains me to think that she is growing up one more day without her family that we know God has given her.

We love you, Anna Li Grace ~ We are doing everything we can to make sure you get to us as soon as possible.... more importantly, we are praying daily that you are well-cared for and that you will come to us in just the perfect time!
