The Best Phone Call Ever

12 Dec

Ok, so the title of this post may be giving everything away…. But seriously guys, THE BEST PHONE CALL EVER!!!

In the midst of term papers and finals and holiday parties and plans, I received a phone call from the program director we have been speaking with at our adoption agency. She met up with the team that was in Zimbabwe in November to meet with government officials regarding setting up a protocol for international adoption. This phone call was her follow up call.

She explained that the meetings had gone much better than she had anticipated. Both the Director of Family and Social Welfare and the District Representative of Family Services were willing to meet with the team to discuss the possibilities of an international adoption program within Zimbabwe.

And the result of these meetings and the relationship that have been established means that…..

WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE GREEN LIGHT!!! We are actually pursuing an adoption from Zimbabwe!!

To be able to write these words and to stand here and contemplate the reality of our situation is 100% a dream come true. This doesn’t mean smooth sailing from now until we bring our precious baby home, but it does mean that we have been handed a huge opportunity.

The Lord has been so faithful as we have journeyed along this path. All we have done is the grunt work. We had the meetings, made the phone calls, read all the material and completed all the paperwork. But God has opened all the doors and lighted each step along the way. All we have done is listened and eagerly taken each step that He has set before us. My heart is so full of gratitude and hope as I share this good news with you.

The next step in our journey is to assemble our dossier. This will be a complete picture of who we are as a family and it is what will be sent to the Zimbabwean government to begin the process on their end.

A little more work left to do, but it is so worth it and I do it with great joy!!

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support as we endeavour to bring the missing piece of our family home from Harare to Vancouver.
