I'm not sure if you noticed our little ticker up above and our timeline to the right, but we sent our dossier to our agency on February 11th and all the paperwork we have been working on since April 07 has been approved. Praise God! Our dossier was sent via FedEx to Ethiopia on March 3rd (Monday). (I've been tracking it - its still in the states, Delaware to be exact.)
So now the real waiting begins - we probably will not hear anything for another 5-6 months. The next news we hear may be a phone call letting us know that they have a referral (match) for us.
Please be praying for us as we wait, the the little one God already has planned for us and for his/her birth mother.
Thank you for all of your prayers and kind words!
