We Made it through the Review Room!

*I must have been so happy I forgot how to type. Of course I meant "we". Not "me". Oops! All fixed now.*

You wanna know the best way to turn yesterday's bad day into a fantastic one? Learning just now that we are OUT OF THE REVIEW ROOM! Thanks Cyndi for the heads up! I can not tell you what a huge sense of relief(and joy) I am feeling right now. I was very nervous about this step in the process because of my health issues. I am so happy. So happy.

For those non-adoption folks out there, this means that China has reviewed our file and determined that we qualify to adopt a child from them. It is one step further to Sophie. It doesn't mean that we are close. We still have to wait in the long, long line. Now our file sits in a room somewhere until our turn comes up(possibly still two years away) and they match us with a child. I am thankful to God for getting us this far. I have Faith He will get us the rest of the way.
