Dare I say the good news!?
Lifeline Adoption Agency posted that the first family since the February 3 holdup has successfully received an IR4 visa from the U.S. Embassy in Kampala… WAHOO!!! (Others have received an IR3 visa, but this is different and would not help our situation.)
I now feel free, whenever we finally recieve our referral, to fully let myself fall head-over-heels in love. I wondered how in the world I would guard my heart, knowing that we had not yet seen the visa process work from start to finish. How does your heart handle loving a child who may not come to be yours, in the end? I am glad that I will not have to find out!
There still may be some significant delays while in country — you should read Lifeline’s full post for all of the details. But that’s okay. I can handle whatever difficulties we may face, as long as we know that the hardships will result in FINALLY bringing our little one HOME TO US!!!!
