Here she is ...Meet our girl Libbie, The Libster I've wrestled about posting our absolutely wonderful, amazingly GREAT news.... I wanted to wait until we had received our I-800A approval, and then I thought I should wait until we had received the Pre-Approval from China and then I thought I should wait until we mailed our announcements... but I just can't wait any longer!! I (WE, Lambert and Hoot are here blogging with me) proudly introduce Libbie Lin~Zhang Lambert... I just can't wait any longer. You may be receiving the same announcement in the mail within the next few days, but I had to share the good news with my blog friends. Thanks for all the encouraging e-mails and support. I've not wanted to share a lot about our referral on this blog, just to protect her and to make sure that we were without a doubt approved!!!
We're not certain about travel. Our dossier should be ready to go to China in about 3 weeks. It should be 3-6 months after DTC before we actually travel to China. Libbie's birthday is in December. She will be 3 years old. I am praying boldly that we will travel in December... I know that it will be only by God's grace that everything will be done by then, but I also believe God's still in the business of miracles. We have a friend from a Yahoo group that is in China now. They are going to try to snap some recent photos for us when they visit the orphanage this Thursday.... I am praying for a sweet photo of our precious Libbie.
1 Thessalonians 5:24The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.
I first read this verse on another beautiful announcement and I claimed this verse for our family after speaking to Kim at 3 Peanuts... she gave me so much encouragement when I really needed it. This scripture has brought me such a peace when there was a lot of uncertainty in our journey. If God calls you to it... HE will see you through it. He is always with you, even when you feel alone or distant from him. He is there guiding your steps on the narrow path. I wish all of you that are in the process or beginning to think about adoption, the courage to trust in The One who is calling you. Just trust Him!
