Flying Over the Atlantic!

We got an email yesterday (Friday, Nov. 7th) letting us know our dossier had been authenticated and was loaded with some other dossiers and FedEx was hauling the "box o' important papers" to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia! We had just mailed it a week ago and it's already on it's way! Needless to say we're very excited.

The wait time appears to be anywhere from 5 months (for a sibling group, which we're open to) to 10 months (for a toddler girl). So, we could travel to Africa as early as April or as late as September. Either way, I'm sure the time will pass quickly. We're looking forward to the day when we get word of a referral and get to see the picture or pictures! See, here's the little secret...we're actually praying that we could have a sibling group (one boy and one girl) so hopefully it will be sooner than later! But, we know it's God's choice, but He said to ask...

So, for now we wait and schedule our shots and load up on malaria meds! Thanks for your continued prayers.
