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.

You call them as much as you need to. That is what they are there for! Big accomplishment! He'll be here before you know it.

Yea! Congrats! I know how you feel, I worked like a mad woman too and I think I may have been just a tiny bit too hard on my poor husband :)

Take a deep breath and celebrate. This is such a huge accomplishment!

Congratulations! Gosh, if I had known you were calling so often, I'd have had you ask a couple of questions for me, too! -Gina

Yea!!! I'm finally feeling a lot more positive and really want to get cracking on that dossier. Our check for the marriage certificate cleared, so hopefully, we'll get it in the mail this weekend or early next week.

Congrats on getting your dossier sent off just in time! Hi! This is Fran and Brad and we were pursuing Vietnam adoption until we really realized there was no way our homestudy and dossier would get there "on time". So, the Lord opened up a wonderful avenue for us in Ethiopia adoption. We are so excited to have listened to the Lord on this route, and already feel blessed with a little girl we dont even know about yet! Bless you and your continued journey to your little child!

Hi Jessica - Yes, we will be using The Assistant Stork. I don't know if we would have if things weren't as they are, but with the time restraint, I'm opting to pay the added money, so everything gets where it should hopefully on time.
