We have officially finished our dossier!!! There is nothing else that we can do but wait!! It feels so good to have it out of our hands now. I know the Lord will have many opportunities to teach me patience in the coming months.

I will overnight everything tomorrow am to the appropriate places:) You can pray that we receive our 171-H (really important document) in a timely manner. This is the document from our government stating that we can bring an orphan back to the states. The time that you receive these varies state by state. Some come as quickly as two weeks and others take up to 3 months. Please, please pray that we are on the quicker side. We can't officially go on WH waitlist until we receive this coveted piece of paper.

Issy asked tonight, "so mommy, you put these in the mail tomorrow and then we can go to Africa to get our kids?" Precious and how I wish it were that easy!

Since you commented me twice, I don't have to wait until your next post! I noticed you had same kind of different as me on your favorite books list! That is one of my favorites as well! My friend gave it to me (she is from Dallas and has some kind of connection with the guy that wrote it). Anyway, I thought it was interesting you had it as a favorite because I didn't know it was a widely read book. Fun stuff!
