The Lord has blessed with an answer to prayer

I haven't posted much about our adoption lately because nothing has been happening. Ever since we finished the fundraiser and updated our paperwork, we have been waiting for the legal guardian to give his or her approval. Someone suggested we write a letter to the guardian, explaining how we'll be able to take care of Z and give her a good home. I wrote a letter that I hope was touching. It made me cry, at least. There's something touching when you write "I promise to take care of your child forever, loving her as if she was my biological child." I'm actually tearing up now, thinking about it...

I have no idea if our letter helped, but this morning we woke up to an email that said: "Your petition to adopt Z has been pre-approved by her legal guardian. Now, Taiwan will prepare the adoption agreement and power of attorney."

Praise the Lord!! We have been praying for a few different things lately. 1 - That Z's heart will be softened so she will allow us to love her. 2 - That she will be protected until we can pick her up. 3 - That the legal guardian will have faith that we will take good care of his/her child.

I can't wait to go to Taiwan and start loving on her!

I'm glad that you are one step closer. I will pray that God will help move things quickly, so you can bring your daughter home.

It's so wonderful to read of more progress in your adoption journey! I look forward to reading that these three new prayer requests have been answered.
