JEROME IS OUT OF MOI

Vivian phoned Marc today and shared the news that Jerome is out of MOI as of February 27 and is now in passport printing along with Richnightder. Now the wait begins to see how long our files will remain in the passport office. Finally, some movement.

This morning, feeling very reverent and religiousy, I decided to look up what my old Catholic Missile had to say about today, the first tuesday of lent. I flipped the book open, and it was to a page dedicated to St. Jerome, who I learned is the patron saint of orphans and abandoned children. Now having grown up Catholic, this really made me feel like there is something to this. I guess now after learning about St. Jerome, I will always feel like he has had a guardian angel looking out for him since the moment of his birth and thru his terrible years at the first orphanage.

That's wonderful news! I'm so happy for you!

Very cool about Saint Jerome, as well. It's nice when you get those little reminders that this isn't OUR work or plan at all - there's a larger plan at work here!

I was just blog-hopping and stopped in.

I am adopted, my father's name was Jerome...named after the preacher who married his parents--they had 12 kids, and Jerome is my son's middle name--and he is a 28 year old pastor.

We are praying for you and yours this day.

Love,

Myra.
