"To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

We're Coming, Nathan......

We are so excited that we received a travel date from Nathan's country.....February 17th (which happens to be Bella's 6th birthday).

Kevin was able to talk with immigration services today and was told that our fingerprints came back clear (whew!) and that they would try and get our approval done as quickly as possible. We need to get that I-171H by at least February 11th so we can get it notarized and sent it off to Bismarck for an apostille.

Then, we are ready to go...... Yay!
