I dont know who read my blog post awhile back about us processing Lukes DUAL CITIZENSHIP and how God worked so many things out + how we were waiting to get the call if he got approved.
Last Saturday I got a call from the Embassy in Manila. I was scared to hear what they were going to say. My heart was beating so fast. The lady on the phone asked if I had remembered them requesting additional proof of having a total amount of 5 years in the US from the age of 14 up.
See that was one of the requirements that I had at least 5 years presence. I was nervous because both my mom and I went over the different times I hd been there and to be honest it didn’t come close. But we just kept praying and asking God to show favour.
I told her yes I had remembered and the extra documents were on their way. The lady then mentioned that “Oh Ma’am I just wanted to inform you..we will no longer be needing those documents. You had the 5 years needed.” Then she was kind of silent. The next thing she said was “You’re son has been approved. His passports and documents will be sent you within the next week or more.” 😭😭😭
It was truly all God. I am 100% convinced God put those extra dates in my passport!!!
These two little passport books will always be a reminder of how GOD answers prayer💙😍
THANKKK you to everyone who prayed!!
I feel like it has been forever since I’ve sat down and actually blogged. I’ve missed it! I’ve gotten side-tracked a little with things so i’ve lost focus with my space here. So I thought i’d sit down and write today:) Life has been really great! I feel so lucky to be where I am right now. I love being a wife and mom. I remember thinking years ago how I cant wait to be married and have a kid and how slow time felt like it was going and now it just wont slow down. I feel like tomorrow I’m gunna wake up and Lukes going to be a teenager!

I bawled my eyes out before church last night. I started thinking about my baby boy turning 1 in just a few weeks. I walked into the bathroom to make sure my makeup wasn’t smeared. When I looked in the mirror. I started laughing at myself- I started thinking “WHO ARE YOU?”
