Happy, Happy Days!
Our Dossier is finally complete. Our agency received the paperwork back from the Secretary of State late last week and that officially ended our paper chase for this adoption.

Can I hear an Amen!!! If I had to look at those papers one more day I was going to scream! Have I mentioned before how much I hate to do paperwork? Oh yeah, I forget, like a million times. Sorry.

So, the process we started 13 months ago and thought would take a maximum of six months took a bit longer. I have to believe there was a reason for that. That the child(ren) who are to be a part of our family weren't ready for us yet. God is teaching me patience, greater Faith, and a willingness to trust in him completely through this process.

What a Blessing!

Now the waiting begins. I have been praying for a referral by Christmas but the official wait time with our agency right now is 6 - 10 months for an infant. We are requesting a little girl 0-4years or girl/boy siblings 0-4 years. I have no idea if that means we will get a referral before someone asking for an infant only. Only time will tell.

So, thanks for going on this crazy wonderful journey with us. When you hear that loud screaming coming through your front windows you will know we received our referral. I am sure the scream of excitement I let out will be heard from California to Florida.

James 1:27
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and
faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to
keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
