Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

Agggg....More paperwork

So we aren't officially on the waiting list yet. Late last week our case worker called to let us know that some of our papers would have to be notarized again because there was some discrepancies on the notaries dates....So we have to do those and then send them in. Hopefully, by the end of this week. I'm glad that those things were caught before it was sent to a judge in Ethiopia and they denied our paperwork.
We have also been working on filling out grants to help us cover the cost of this adoption. We've finished 2 and have 2 more to go. Most of the work is done, there's just a few more things to add....again hopefully by the end of this week.

Dossier Sent

We did it! We sent out our dossier today. I'm a little nervious about it getting there just because I put so much work into all that paperwork:) I'm sure it'll get there though. So, once it's reviewed and approved we will officially be on the waiting list for our little babe! Yeah, it seems like it's taken forever to get here but I think the timing is going to work out well.

We are excited too because we had the money we needed to send with our dossier. A couple weeks ago we were wondering if we'd have enough and thanks to so many people who have bought shirts we do:) Just another cool way the Lord's provided for our adoption. Only $10,000 more to go!
