We are so excited and very proud to introduce you to our Sholey Joy Woolverton.  God has chosen this little girl for us, and us for her~  How blessed, honored and very thankful to the Lord for this precious little girl.  Our hearts are so overwhelmed with emotion and we can not wait to go get her and bring her HOME~
"I will not leave you as orphans; I am coming to you."
John 14:18

It is official that Sholey Joy is ours!  Yesterday, Monday, April 30th we received the best news...we received our "LOA" (letter of acceptance), which gives us all rights to share her photos and anything else we chose to share about her.  I will share that her cleft lip has been repaired, but her palate has not. We will have that done once we get home and adjusted.  Today, May 1st we received our overnight UPS package from China/Bethany Christian Services with our Post Referral Travel Packet.  We now apply for our travel visas, along with completing our I-800 documents to the USCIS and then we can bring Sholey Joy home.  

I still have more work to do and I will share more about Sholey later.  Continue to pray for her and for us.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts~
