Houston...we have travel approval...I repeat...we have travel approval! :)

We woke up to some wonderful news this morning...that we had been issued a travel approval from the US Embassy in Guatemala! Travel dates and a visa appointment for baby Jacob came a few hours later--so now we know when we are going!

We leave May 10th and return home on May 15th (Jillian's birthday). We are currently scrambling to get plane tickets, hotel reservations, etc. :) Our house will be a flurry of activity for the next few weeks!

We have BCIS approval!!

There was a wonderful surprise in the mailbox today!! We received our final approval from the US Government (BCIS)! Now we are just waiting to receive our appointment from the US Consulate in Guatemala and then we will be able to go get Jacob. We are guessing that will probably be about 2 or 3 weeks from now???

We are so thankful that God has gotten us through the BCIS maze once again...big sigh of relief! :)
