Moving along

We are almost done with our dossier. We are waiting for a couple documents and then we are DONE!!! We have online courses to complete but we are done with our workbook and that is our last step for this part. When we are done with this we will be put on the wait list for a girl. Then we WAIT.

Case Manager

We had our dossier orientation call today. We were able to talk with our case manager who will help us through all the paperwork we need to gather. There are a couple changes we have to make to our homestudy but for the most part we are doing good.

We received our adoption planner and dossier package on Friday. It was so exciting to open it up and start the next step. So now we are starting more classes to educate us about adoption and the needs of our new baby girl. We will also be gathering more paperwork and filling out more forms, such as birth/marriage certificates, medical statements, taking pictures of our house, and many more.
We hope you will join us in praying for our little girl. We don't know where she is right now, if she has even been born. We pray for her mother that she will have a safe, healthy pregnancy/delivery. If she has been born, we pray for safety and health for her and whoever she is with right now. It's hard not to try and hurry the process along to get to her quicker. We have to daily remind ourselves that God's timing is never late. A very wise friend gave us this verse to clutch to during these times:
"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3
