We got an email from our social worker yesterday saying that the government of Illinois has reviewed our home study. We have to take a quick online course on hair and skin care for our sweet African(s). I am excited to go through the course as it was something I was planning on doing anyway. No time like the present! Once we've finished that, we will be approved!!
This is huge! Illinois has been taking anywhere from 2-4 weeks to review applications. Ours took a little under a week! Praise God! I am praying that once our application is sent to the national level, it goes as quickly. It is typically estimated between 8-12 weeks. Thank you for your prayers. God is moving this timeline along, working to bring our little one(s) home.
