The past two weeks have flown by for us! We decided this summer to homeschool our kids. This new venture as well as the paperwork process for our adoption has kept us spinning!!!! (In a good way of course) We will be meeting with our social worker on Sunday for our final homestudy meeting! We have also chosen our agency and they have recieved our paperwork. The next step for us is going to be lining our our docier paperwork. This will take a couple of weeks to get everything typed out, notarized, and sent off. Once that process is complete, we will be fingerprinted and wait for the INS to approve our paperwork! From that point, our documents will be sent to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to be translated. Once they are submitted, we wait for a court date. There is a lot to the process but it's all well worth it! Our next financial obligation in this process is going to be a $5200.00 agency fee. This is going to be due within the next 6 weeks, however we know that God is going to provide! For those of you reading that haven't already, please prayerfully consider making a one-time donation of $20.00 to help us reach this goal. With the amazing response over the past 3 weeks, we were able to pay for our homestudy and agency application fee. Praise God!!! We can't thank all of you enough for making this dream a reality for our family!!! Please continue to pray for us.
