We got our CIS Approval Letter in the mail today! Praise God!!!
I went out to the mailbox kind of early because it's been raining and our mailbox tends to leak. I didn't want a bunch of soggy mail. As I opened the mailbox our approval letter was sitting right on top of the stack. I rushed inside and ripped it open and my heart sank when I saw a pink piece of paper because I thought it meant something was wrong and we hadn't been approved. I read the letter and called my friend Kathleen to make sure that we were approved. The pink paper was just a reminder that our approval is only good for one year. Whew! As I was looking at the letter I noticed the date that we were officially approved - April 20th! My sister's birthday! We became agency approved on my birthday and CIS approved on my sister's. God is so good! Now I just have to get this letter notarized and mailed off and we will be just days away from being on the Wait List!
