Homestudy & I-600a

The first step in this adoption was getting a homestudy completed. After calling around and receiving a few closed doors, God put us in touch with A New Arrival. They were absolutely wonderful to work with. Our social worker loves God and has a heart for adoption and missions. We saw how God had orchestrated little details (like closing doors) to bring us to this place. Our first homestudy visit was April 13, 2006. Our homestudy application was finished and submitted July 6, 2006.
During this time we had also been working on our I-600a which is a petition to the United States Department of Justice seeking approval of an application for advance processing of orphan(s). It is another required step in the adoption. It normally takes about 3 to 4 months to hear acceptance. In our case it only took 30 days! Praise God!So now we are officially waiting! Waiting to find out who our Jesus Babies are!
