Hi dear friends and family!
A few days ago we got an email with this title:
Your dossier has been logged in by the CCCWA!
This means our paperwork has been sent, received, and logged-in to the CCCWA, or the China Center for Children’s Welfare and Adoption.
We are thrilled! This means we are very officially waiting. There is nothing more we need to do, until we receive our child-match.
So the new prayers can be that when we receive our ‘child-match’ from our agency CCAI, it would be abundantly clear that the child they have matched us with is meant to be our daughter. We will have a couple days to review her medical files and decide, but we really do ask that you would pray the decision is an obvious YES on our part. No wondering, no uncertainty. Pray we will just ‘know’ she was meant to be ours. We have several medical conditions we have agreed to accept on our official Medical Conditions Checklist, that would give any parent reason for pause. But we are trusting that whatever health issues she may have will be treatable at any one of the wonderful hospitals available to us in the Chicagoland area.
Lots of trust, lots of prayer, lots of waiting. Difficult at times, but oh so good to know God is with us.
Love to all!
Lars and Kate
PS- We are thrilled to report we are within a couple hundred dollars of our adoption being FULLY funded. God is a faithful provider!
