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.

Jek, I love you and I am so very proud of all that you have done in the past year. You are an amazing woman of strength, courage, faith and love! I just can't explain how happy I am for you to bring your Little John home. Love to all of yall!

Well, it sounds like it only took 12 days for you to send the dossier to Laura, get it authenicated and sent back, so since we just sent ours today, I'm hoping we have it back before the end of the month. Did you end up paying the expedited fees? We figured , it couldn't hurt to do so. I wonder if other agencies are rushing to get this done too. I know there's at least one that I heard of that will not even allow current PAP's to send in their dossier anymore, so I guess we're lucky to be able to! You should definitely get yours logged in, in time.

Yipppeeee! We are getting ready to send ours to the stork. Did you use FedEx or UPS? Also, did you pay the extra cost to have it processed quickly? Last question, did you have it sent back to you or directly to CHI?

Your faith is inspiring. Faith is what we have right now and through it comes every good thing God has for us. I'm praying and believing with you that we're all going to bring our kids home. Oh, and ongratulations on getting rid of that darn dossier! I can still feel the utter relief of finally handing it over once and for all!

Jessica, I agree with you. We are going to be just fine, we are just going to have to wait a little longer. This is a big accomplishment. Now take a deep breath and exhale.

WOW! I thought I would check your blog as it has been awhile since I looked for an update. This is great news! We in the China community are keeping the faith too! So many changes seem to be happening as you say in the adoption world, but praise the GREAT GOD we serve for He is in control. Thank you for your post. It is very uplifting and encouraging!
