On It's Way!!

Today we received great news - our dossier has officially left for Ethiopia!!! It's on it's way and should get there by next Thursday. I wish we weren't so busy this weekend- it seems like we should be off to the nearest Ethiopian restaurant to celebrate (not to mention I've been craving it lately- I love it). Maybe we'll have our celebration next Thursday when it (hopefully) gets to our in-country representative in Ethiopia, Tsegay.

There is no word on referrals- we were told that they do not have any information on infants yet. We were secretly hoping they did (of course), but we understand that we have to be patient (or are trying to understand this). Our program coordinator reminded us to keep faith and know that God has a plan for us and for our child(ren).

Please say prayers that our dossier makes it to Ethiopia, and to Tsegay safely (and soon!). We truly appreciate everyone out there reading this and giving us support through prayer.

Now I'm off to do a happy dance! :)


  1. Congratulations!! I started laughing when I read about your happy dance, since I did one today too, quite literally. my office. I even sang the happy dance song!! So are they giving you any sort of time frame of how long between dossier and referral? and how long from referral to travel? Again, congratulations :)

  2. Congratulations! Your getting ever closer & closer!
