The Big News!

Today is a long-awaited for day. After months of paper-chasing, thousands of dollars spent, many days wondering where in the world (literally) our dossier was, I can finally announce....

OUR DOSSIER HAS BEEN SUBMITTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What this means: Our paperwork has been turned in to the SDA in charge of adoptions in Zara's country and Zara is available for adoption.

What we are doing now: Freaking out, praising God, fundraising in earnest, getting Zara's room ready for her arrival, and anxiously waiting to find out the date of our SDA appointment!

When we will be traveling: We won't know for certain until we get our appointment date, but likely it will be about 5 weeks from now. That puts us traveling the week of June 6 (hopefully).

Praising God today!

Congratulations!!! So VERY exciting! Hopefully, we'll be submitted next week. Still a chance we could meet in the capital city. I'd love that. :-)
