Digging to China

So it looks like all the holes that Pepper's 
been digging are going to come in handy.
We've laughed that she's digging to China.
And it appears that she's going to be 
my fastest route to Emily Margaret.

Good news:
I'm r-e-a-l-l-y close to finishing all our paperwork.

Bad news:
My first AND second sets of 
finger prints were "unclassifiable".
The next step is for them to run a name search.
When I asked for their expected time frame,
they declined to give me one.

The Worst News:
There's no referral until the fingerprint issue is cleared up. 

My Thoughts:
I'm sad, I'm tired, I'm frustrated.
I'm leaning on God.
I'm certain that He's still in this.
I know He has all of this already written.
Although I wish He'd give me a copy of His plan.
Nah, that might take away my need to fall at His feet.

So that's where you'll find me...
at His feet,
clinging to His promises.

"For we are God's workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do."
Ephesians 2:10

God's blessings friends,

Interesting...I just did my own Lilypie counter, and you've been waiting for Emily Margaret exactly 1 month and 2 days longer than I've been waiting for Caden. I knew we were close, but I didn't realize we were THAT close!!!
