Dossier is "in the mail"!

The dossier!
(In the background on the left is a picture of us taken on our honeymoon...  boy, were we young and clueless!  I am so thankful that God has been leading us over the last almost 17 years to this point.  Can't wait to see what the next 17 will hold!)
1" thick
21 weeks

I just about can’t believe that huge part of the process is complete. It's one of those times when we've focused all our effort and energy on one single thing, and once it's actually done it's kind of hard to change focus to so what comes next. 

Our agency will receive the dossier on Friday, review it several times, and in two or three weeks will send it to Ethiopia. From that point we will be placed on a waiting list and will “get in line” to receive our referrals.

Thanks! Yes, it does feel great! I feel like we're finally moving on - and it's kind of a weird feeling! :)
