We are so happy to announce that we are officially a family! We had court finalization today in Lagos, Nigeria and they approved the adoption. This means that, as far as Nigeria is concerned, Olivia Angel Yager is in every way our daughter. Happy Yager Day!
We now have three documents we need in order to schedule our first appointment at the U.S. Consulate: the official court order paperwork, her birth certificate, and then her passport. We need the birth certificate to get the passport, so pray all of these documents come in quickly. Pray also for favor in the immigration process – it can go relatively quickly or it can take many months. It is our prayer to have the passport next week and then schedule the soonest available appointment. Thanks so much for your prayers thus far – we have a great and merciful God, and we continue to see Him more clearly as the adoption unfolds. Pray for his mercy and grace to continue to be poured out on our family.
