Bingo!

After a busy first official day of summer vacation, I just now sat down to go through today's mail. Making my way, in no great haste, to the bottom of the stack, I discovered a letter whose return address was from DCFS.

There were no other distinctive markings on the letter that I could find as I turned it over and examined its back. It felt light--definitely too light to be any of the missives sent out by the agency regarding policy change or updates. Not postmarked as a bulk mailing, my eyes darted across the address label reading, what appeared to be, our type-written name. Could this be a letter mailed specifically to us? Could this be the one we'd been waiting...

Oh, for Pete's sake, just tell them already!

Our homestudy, yes that homestudy, has been approved!

Praised be to Jesus Christ and thank you Mother Mary for all your help! We are all so happy that you received the next bit of confirmation that there is still another little Arkling out there to add to the Ark.

May the 'waters' be calm and may you have a fast wind at your backs.

Blessings,
Anne
