Dossier being sent to Ethiopia tomorrow!

I heard from our family coordinator today that our dossier has been reviewed, certified and authenticated. It is being FedExed to Ethiopia tomorrow!

Once again, we have to praise God for getting us through one more step smoothly. I had felt fairly confident, after having reviewed our paperwork a billion times, that it was all in order; but you never know. So, I was so relieved to hear that it had been reviewed and passed inspection, so to speak. Plus the agreement from our agency says that they have a week to review the dossier, then three weeks to certify and authenticate it- totaling a month. Ours was done in less than a week!

It is so humbling to know that God is guiding all of our steps and meeting all of our needs. It's amazing to think He is ensuring that we complete all of our tasks at just the right time so that we are brought together with the child He has chosen as ours.

Hey guys!! Our dossiers are in the same FedEx box together! Two KY families in one box, how awesome. And only one week behind the Caldwells!

Exciting times. :)

Happy (belated) dossier travels to you! I am not sure but I think our dossiers were sent together to ET.

There have been so many people on
the YG it's been hard to keep up these days. Just wanted to come over and say hello. We could possibly be travel buddies one day!
