Woo hoo! We just received SongYan's passport today so we are completely official at this point. We leave in 2 1/2 hours to head to the airport for Guangzhou to work on the American side (visas).
Please pray for SongYan especially in Guangzhou -- We have the medical appointments on Saturday in Guangzhou and we have no immunization records on her. Because she is over 10 she will almost certainly have to have all of the shots unless there is a Divine intervention. Please pray for the doctors to find a way to not require so many shots at once and pray that there is not negative reaction on the shots that do have to be given.
We still cannot believe that our government, who knows that so many shots should not be given at one time would require that for newly adopted children. So please lift this up--that we would know how to have the translator explain the process in a way that makes sense, and/or that someone will have mercy on her and be lenient.
God has been taking care of every little issue, and we know that He has a plan in this also.
We still plan to give you most of the details from yesterday, but some things will just have to wait and perhaps never be blogged. Just know that our God is at work all over this world. It has been AWESOME to observe some of his work in action.
We are on the down hill slide to home! YAY!
