Alabama Approved Us!

Woohoo! We got word this week that the state of Alabama completed our background check & has deemed us worthy to adopt. This is a HUGE deal... this is 1/2 of what might have delayed our travel time. It makes me very hopeful that we will be able to leave Caroline (pictured) with my mom on her summer break while we travel.  God's timing is perfect, regardless of what happens -- but it sure does make me happy when our prayers are answered in the way that we asked them to be!! (Immature of me, I know!)

Now we're waiting on our CAN's (Child Abuse & Neglect Clearances), which will mean that our Home Study can be brought to a very happy end! (... if we can finish up those items dependent on us!)
