Dossier Submitted! Signed...Sealed...Delivered!


Woo hoo!!!!  We submitted our dossier!  Many times, I've felt like we were the 'turtle' in this journey in comparison to other families.  As other families who started this journey 'after' us turned in their dossiers 'before' us, sometimes it was discouraging but I'd quit my little pity party after remembering that God's timing for us was perfect.  This is why it's so important to NOT compare yourselves to others.  You can miss smelling the roses in your own journey because you're so busy sniffin' your neighbors.  Okay...sorry...I digressed.  The point being that the joy I experienced from submitting our dossier today made me put on the backburner those feelings of discouragement.  Yesterday was amazing!  Take the journey with us as we traveled up to America World's suite to turn in our documents!




So what's next...as I shared in the video, our agency will take it to the State Department and then it will be translated into Amharic and THEN it will be sent via FedEx to Ethiopia!  Once it's received, we will begin the wait for our daughter!  More to come so be sure to continue in the journey with us!

Lots of love!
