We found out that Jedidiah had heart surgery on January 13th.  They fixed both holes in his heart and he seems to be doing very well.  The social worker will visit him in February and them give us another update.

I had so many mixed emotions upon hearing this news.  I was so excited yet sad that I could not be there with him.  It is very hard to be so far away and feel like your son is not yours because, like with this, we did not hear anything until after it was done.  Heart surgery is a pretty big deal and although it would have been nice to know before hand we know that God was with him.  I also think it may have been better so we would not be in constant anticipation waiting for an update since communication seems to be few and far between with Hong Kong.  

That's it for now.  I will be back in February unless we hear something before then.

And There Off...AGAIN

I had a few documents that needed to be sent to USCIS.  I sent them off yesterday!  Now we wait, wait and then wait some more.  If you would be praying that these documents would get processed so we can continue to move forward that would be great.

On January 3rd we found out that the Hong Kong government had accepted our referral.  This is great news!  This means that we can adopt Jed. This was the last approval we have been waiting for.  Estimated travel is now between 4 and 6 months.  There is more paper work to be filled out too.  I am disappointed in how long it could take us to travel because this is a lot longer than we and our agency expected.  I still know that God is in charge and if He has plans for Jed to get home sooner then all the needed paperwork processing will go much faster than expected.

We also found out that Jed's last heart exam showed that he may need surgery within a month.   Again, we trust that God is in charge and He knew this was coming.  He is not surprised with any information we get. We also know that God can still heal Jed in an instant.  We will continue to pray for healing!!!

I hope to update more as things have begun to move forward again.  Until then, thanks for checking in.

God Bless.
