Well, we had our second homestudy visit today. It went well. We found out that in addition to having our homestudy notarized, approved by CAS, CCAI, Immigration, the Secretary of State, the US Consolate and the Chinese Consolate, it also has to be approved by SC DSS!! Wow!! Lots of paperwork and lots of trusting God..... But it will be worth it. :)
