Anxiously awaiting the approval of our I-800 so that we can move on to the next step and hurry up and bring Luke home! We received our LOA on October 26th and mailed out overnight our I-800 on the same day, we checked our tracking number and know that it was received on the 27th so here is praying we wont have much longer of a wait! We are beyond excited and just cant wait for the day when Luke finally gets to come here! We have started a fundraiser selling Just Love Coffee. Sales are a tad slow to start but, we just started it so lets see what happens. I have been filling out grant applications like a crazy woman and 3 are leaving Monday and hopefully 2 more will be out of here a few days after that. WOW the work involved in the grant applications is insane. Totally worth it if we get one, but WOW insane! Like there isn't enough paperwork involved in an international adoption with China hahah. I have a link on my page for our coffee fundraiser. Justlovecoffee.com/TheWorrellFamily Check it out and purchase some amazing coffee. I also have a link for Christmas Frenzy. An adoptive mother devoted her blog to allow many of us adopting and having fundraisers to put them all in one place. Great way to get some Christmas shopping done and help a family to bring their child home forever! I surely cannot wait until I have my son in my arms and my children have their new brother home with them! We are truly blessed! My daughter who is 4 prays the most amazing prayers for her brother "Dear God, I pray that you keep Luke safe, I pray that he comes home really soon and that he fits in well with our family and that I can sign with him when he comes home, because sign language is hard and I am still learning, I pray that he comes to know Jesus, so that He can save him. Please bring him home to us fast. Amen"
From the mouth of a child straight to Gods ears and heart!
- My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.
