I was informed that it would take at least 4 weeks to receive our approval from the USCIS. So I had this conversation between myself and God where I told Him that it would mean SO much to me if we got our approval before Easter. I honestly didn't think it would happen, but Easter has always been such a significant time of the year for me. It's not "magical" but it's very real and personal. God graciously reminds me of His incredible resurrection Power and this beautiful gift of redemption that He has given me. He never ceases to amaze me with the ways in which He answers.
Yesterday I took a deep breath before opening our mailbox.... and there it was on top of our stack of junk mail. "Department of Homeland Security."
I let out a sigh of joy, cried my eyes out and ran to the house. I held back extra tears and waved the precious piece of mail to Sol and the boys.
