Class B waiver

Well, Wednesday of this past week I logged onto my email and had an email from our CHSFS SW. My heart always stops when I see her name come across because I am hopeful for good news and terrified for bad news. SO.....I opened the email to see that we needed to get three copies of this form signed and notarized and then returned back to CHSFS by mail. My heart sped up as I got hopeful that by some miracle she may make it home this year! Some of my AP korean friends received their travel call a week after their Class B waiver got to Korea. However, we do know that they are not issuing anymore EP's out until 2011, but I was still hopeful. So, I called John's school and he was to my school within 30 minutes! We signed all three papers, got them notarized and back in the mail within an hour of receiving the email. (I will NOT be the cause of ANY possible hold up!) :) My dad and mom have been looking at flights and found that if for some strange reason we were to travel before Christmas the flight will be around 5,291.00/person!!!!!! HOLY COW! Well, the chances of the TC coming before 2011 are slim to none, but a girl can dream, right? I heard that price and thought, SERIOUSLY? I was stressing the money issue and talking to John when he said, "it always works out, the money will come somehow, and you know it isn't always pretty getting there, but we will."
Well, I posted on the forum that I was hopeful but not thinking we would get a TC before January and they all agreed. So, I guess that is yet another God thing, right? He is in control. He is still taking care of us (financially speaking) and we will get the call when we are suppose to. (hopefully soon!)
Regardless of it being this year or Jan. of 2011....we are SO close!!!!! Our paperwork is moving (and not lost) and she is COMING HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I figure we are within 6-10 weeks. To me, that seems like nothing! We have waited so long, we can do this last part!
We needed this news this week. I needed to know that things were not at a stand still. I needed to know that she was still ours and coming home. God gives us things when we need it the most!


  1. I am so happy for you all. I am hoping and praying for you that she gets to come home this year. But, as you said, you have waited this long, so that is nothing to yall. I am sooo very happy for this great news. Can;t wait to hear better news! :)

  2. It will be soon. At least they are moving on your paperwork. Can't wait to read of your EP submittal.

  3. I am sooooo happy for you both!!! You're right 6-10 weeks will NOTHING compared to the time you've already waited and that will fly by!!! Having your little girl in your arms at last will be the best gift you'll ever receive...well, other than Jesus Christ, of course. :) Merry Christmas and I'll continue keeping you all in my prayers.

  4. SOOO AWESOME!! I can't wait until you have Olivia in your arms. These next few weeks will fly by and before you know it you will be on the plane!!

  5. Come on travel call!! So happy to read your paperwork is moving. Hang in there, I can't wait to read about your Korea trip!
