We can now join the ranks...

...of those who have turned their dossiers in! Friday we received our last authenticated document from Washington state, scanned all the documents into the computer and went to the Fed-Ex store to send it off. The nice gentleman at Fed-Ex took our family picture...
I cannot believe we are finally turning everything in...we have been waiting for this day to come for over a year. There have been many ups and downs through this process. I have learned so much about patience and how God's plans for us are way better than we would have ever dreamed. We have been on an adventure and I feel like it is now finally starting to get really exciting. Please be praying that everything goes smoothly with the dossier and that our referral will come just as quickly as possible.

Our dossier was over-nighted to Gladney on Friday (we already tracked it to make sure it is on its way even though it won't be get there until Monday) and once they check it over it will be on its way to Washington DC and then on to Ethiopia.

For now, I am busy composing a list of things to do to keep us busy while we wait for the oh-so very important phone call...Let the waiting begin!!!
