No news is. . . . no news

Gosh, I was holding off on posting a while, just hoping that we would have some great news to share with everyone that our USCIS approval had come. But, alas. . . nothing. I finally got in touch with our social worker today who shared that they have about 20 families in the same predicament---waiting on their approval from USCIS. And, they are receiving no communication from Immigration either. . . just crickets chirping. So, we continue our wait and hope that one day soon, we will get confirmation in the mail so that we can go on the waitlist---something we've been striving to do since last October.

On a positive note, I performed my concert, "Unabandoned Love. . . the Orphan's Road Home" at Riverchase United Methodist last week and it went so very well, and was well-received by all who attended. My hope is to schedule more concerts soon. There are so many millions of children who need loving parents out there. I would like to think maybe I could help inspire others to consider adoption and change the world by loving a child.

Thanks for reading, and I'll post as soon as I have news :-) Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I'm sorry... I can't imagine how hard and what a toll this must be taking on you and your family. As my Coen would say "waiting sucks"!
(hope that's okay to say on your blog). Just want you to know that I follow when I can and think of you often.

Here's hoping that you hear some good news from USCIS soon! You SO deserve it. Then we'll all be eagerly following your journey to Taiwan! :)

Kristy, I know this has been very difficult for you. I just know you will have some news soon. The way I look at it is your your already moving up the "list" with all the recent referrals!!
