March 20!

Praise God! Today we heard good news!

March 20, allegedly, We have a court date that we might possibly....if all things go well...then we could possibly.... hear the verbal pronunciation that according to Benin law we are the official parents of Kadi Lael Vaughn.

We really are thankful to have this date on the calendar. We continue to proceed in faith.

If things go well that day, it will be 2-4 weeks later that we receive the official written declaration .

Although there are still many steps to be taken, We are making progress daily. Yesterday we were able to send our paperwork to the Department of Homeland Security in Accra Ghana. Our agency in Texas, Christian Homes and Family Services, has also sent their paperwork regarding our family to the same place. We are being told that sometime in the month of April we will recieve approval to apply for Lael's immigrant visa to the USA!

March 20, I (Kelly) will be in Kenya at the Come Before Winter renewal. Randy's parents, Ronnie and Judy Vaughn will be here in my place. I will greatly miss being a part of that day but I rejoice that we have finally been given a date to anticipate.
