A Good News Day!!

This morning I woke up to an email from our in-country coordinator saying that the embassy had called him and asked him to come for an appointment on Monday at 1pm. Could this mean the waiver has been approved? I think so!!! I think he is going for the regular visa appointment on Monday! This means we could have Kendi's visa next Friday, in plenty of time for her Labor Day Weekend homecoming!!!!!!!! I'm trying not to completely count on Monday being her visa appointment, but I can't think of what else it would be. Our coordinator was under the impression that the waiver has been approved, but they didn't use those exact words. So...for those currently or planning to adopt an HIV+ child from Ghana--we think they did it in 10 business days!

To top it off, the old IRA we cashed in to help with the cost of plane tickets is being cashed out today (finally). Check will be in the mail tomorrow. AND....over they phone the number they gave us was 66% higher than we thought it was going to be!!!!!! Praise God. That's a good chunk of debt we can pay off.

I'm praying that some of my AAI friends have very good news days tomorrow so we can end this week the right way!

Oh what WONDERFUL news!! Praying that appointment on Monday goes well and that Kendi is ready to come home BEFORE that planned homecoming (so you won't have any last minute worries)!!! This is GREAT news about HIV adoptions from Ghana in general!
Yay!
