Happy Friday! 😀
Today is the end of our fourth week in USCIS (U.S. Cizitenship & Immigration Services), which means there is a very good chance we will receive a very exciting email within the next couple of weeks! Most families spend 4-6 weeks in USCIS before they’re I-600 form is approved, so we may be reeeeally close to getting some reeeeally great news in our inbox any moment!
After USCIS, there’s (usually) only 1-2 weeks of appointments (for Steevenson) and travel planning (for us), so our homecoming trip window could really be coming into focus soon! 😀
I guess it’s time to buy (and figure out how to use!) a car seat. 😉 I think we’ve settled on this Britax, but I’ve also heard great things about this Diono. If you have any thoughts on which one we should go with, I’d love to hear them!
On the home front, the folks from The Cottage Journal came over to photograph our house about a year ago and the issue they’re in is on newsstands now. Here’s a pic of the cutie cover:
I was especially touched by the title of the article and that the writer (sweet Katie Wood) included so much about our sweet Sonny.
When I saw that Katie said we had “championed” patience in the subtitle, my initial reaction was: “Oh, gosh! I wish!“. 😀
I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’m the most impatient person in the world sometimes! But here’s what’s really neat: the same day I read that subtitle, Ephesians 3:20 also popped up on a page in front of me:
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
What a great reminder that just because we don’t always feel like we “do patience well”, doesn’t mean It isn’t right there within us…working…accomplishing…time and again. 🙂
