Adoption Update

And today...
the Dossier
(which is the all the paper work required for an international adoption)
went off to Washington to be Authenticated.
Next step once we get it back...it goes off to Ethiopia to be translated and gets submitted to Court (in Ethiopia).
After this... we get our court date...(which should take about 6 weeks). And then several weeks later...we GO to Ethiopia to get our beautiful daughter!!
(no time table with adoption is set in stone...
but we know the One who makes the stones, so no worries!!)
Praying for favor and for our finances!!

Great big step ahead!

Are you a member of the state Ethiopian adoption group? I'll send you the link if you want it. (They had a get together a couple of weeks ago.)

Happy for you!
Can't wait for more news.

Awesome news Kimmie. No orders yet, but I have high hopes!!!

My two little ones may see their mom tomorrow. She has not been showing up. She has to be there early and they will call me to bring them in so they won't be dissappointed. Please pray she shows.

Thanks,
Angel

Kimmie, this is great news! We will be praying that the Lord's timing with the paperwork, court dates and traveling will line up with the provision of the last penny you need. Through this all, may you have peace and faith and feel the guiding, loving presence of the Lord. Blessings to all your precious family as you wait on the Lord!
