Guess What!!!!??

No, we didn't have a baby,
(this is my adorable little cousin, about ten days old in this photo)
*
*
Yes, WE GOT THE VISA!!!
*
*
*
DID ANYONE MISS THAT??
*
*
*
We Got The Visa!!!
*
*
*
Not that this means the waiting is over. We still have to wait for it to be sent to the NVC
and for them to send it to the Embassy
and for the Embassy to send me a big heavy letter with information
I'll have to get appointments and tests done,
I have to contact the Embassy,
they have to schedule an interview,
I have to go to the interview,
and THEN, we're ALMOST THERE....
*
*
But who cares about all that? I'm SO SO SO EXCITED at the thought of being there *soon*.
*
The LORD is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusted in him, and I am helped:
therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song
will I
praise
him.
Psalm 28:7

It came through on August 17, six months to the day from the application was accepted. However, I wasn't aware of it till last night...
Wow, thank you all of you for your prayers, for your sweet, kind notes. I am so very thankful.
I'll keep you updated,
and Raquel, I WILL tell that story, soon, stay tuned =) =)

Oh, praise God from Whom ALL blessings flow! What wonderful news. I know it's still a long way off, but a big step always helps you feel like you're that much closer.

As for your picture- I have a very similar one of myself holding my husband's niece while he looks over my shoulder. It was taken almost 3 years before we were married and we both love that photo. A sweet reminder of what would come later for us.

You don't know me, by the way. I've only seen you on Jewels' blog and followed you over here when she posted your "home" on the web. Hope you don't mind my chiming in.

Blessings!

Dearest Aslaug, It is a precious time in your life and I am very happy for you. I will pray for a speedy completion of the rest of the process. I never realized how much goes into this and the infernal waiting...... You have endured...persevered... The Lord be with you and bless you. By His Grace, Cynthia

åslaug abigail sa...

Cynthia, fortunately, I too was one of those who didn't understand neither how long nor exhausting the wait would be. What a blessing to not know until now and to be free from worry back in October =)

Mrs. Anna T sa...

What awesome news!! I'm so happy to read this joyous update (right when I'm prayerfully hoping, within days, to post some special news as well! :o)). I do hope things progress without stalling from now on.

That baby is snuggled so sweetly in your arms. Hope you will be blessed with one of your own to love, soon, as God wills.
