Dossier to China

OK so I was wrong. The dossier left one day later on Friday April 3rd. Once there we will then be able to post a log in date.
This past week, while on spring break, I received a package from our agency AWAA. It had information about possible travel buddies. If things go as planned we will be traveling with this group to all go and pick up our new additions. Right now I know nothing about them, what kind of child they have applied for or anything. I can't wait to find out more about them, but I guess that will have to wait until they contact me.
Things feel like they are moving along, but I know in reality that we have entered the waiting part. So for now we will be focusing on fundraising and fundraising ideas.

Dossier to China

Today is a day for celebration and an end of an era. Our dossier was to be sent to China today by our adoption agency. Once it is in China they will log it in and that is the really important step, can't be matched with a baby til that happens. Now onto the second half of that comment. What era you ask? The paper chase that has taken almost an exact year to pursue every document and authentication. It has consumed so much of my time, what will I do now? You know when your hands in are the midst of it all you have some control of the situation. Now that it is out of my hands, what will I do? I will trust God. I will trust Him to provide the needed funds. I will trust God that His timing is perfect. I will trust God that He will match us with the child that best fits our family. We will trust God that He will go before us every step of the way. We will trust God for our safety when we travel. We will trust God that He will provide enough for our whole family to travel with us to meet our newest addition to the family. We will trust!
