Dossier and a little faith---

We have spent a lot of time praying this past week for our/all adoption(s). Everything right now is a little crazy in our adoption world. This past week has been full of ups and downs. I’ve spent a lot of time talking and praying to God. I do feel that God is working in our lives. He sent us all down this road- somehow; someway he will complete our journey. We must all keep our faith and continue to pray every hour that He will hold our hands and even carry us when needed. The Bible says if we have just the faith of a mustard see that we can move mountains. Just think how small that really is.

Our Dossier made it’s way back to our local agency on Friday!! It spent 7 business days at the Embassy. I am very glad that we used the Assistant Stork-It was nice to know they looked it over before it left the Embassy. Our Dossier will be leaving this Friday for Vietnam. I am going to keep my faith that God will complete this journey for each of us.

I am adding this just to answer a few questions--
We did not use the expedited service to send our dossier. We just used the regular process. I did have it sent back overnight to CHI-I felt more comfortable having it sent there. I didn’t want it sitting on my front porch all day long.

Dossier has been sent!!!

We just made the cut off last night at FedEx to get our package sent out. I am so happy that it has been mailed. I wont lie to you and say that the past 2 weeks have been very stressful. I’ve waited for weeks to get that call to start our dossier, once I got the call I turned into a mad woman. I need to do something special for Eddie because I think (I know) I was very hard to get along with the past weeks. I am very luck to have him!!

I also feel very lucky to have such a great agency. I know that one of us talked to them sometimes twice a day. I apologized so many times to them for calling but they told us not to worry at all.

I also wanted to share something cute Hannah says. She will ask, “When is my baby brother going to get here”. I will tell her that he will be here soon. Her reply is “It’s just taking too long”. I do agree with her but I know the wait will be worth it. She is looking forward to being a big sister.

The paperchase is over!

All of our documents have been notarized, county certified, state certified and other fied you can think of! As soon as we get our endorsement letter from CHI, which should be Tuesday, we are mailing to the stork. Now it's time to almost relax but continue to pray harder.
