We finally got our approval notice from US CIS! Thank you so much for your prayers.
Tomorrow I am taking my first Korean language class! The class is offered by the Korean Embassy in Washington, DC at the KORUS House (pictured below). Opportunities like this are definitely one of the benefits of living in this area. We had a family come to our waiting families meeting at our adoption agency that had taken the classes. They highly recommended the classes and felt that learning the language really helped their transition. So I am excited to start learning. I probably only know about 10 words in Korean, and half of those are food words : )
So I definitely have lots of learning to do!
