Moving Along

Well,things are moving right along. This week we sent in our application along with some other paperwork,contacted the SW for updating our home study. She is planning on doing the home visit the week ot June 9th.(Yikes) I typed out the"Letter of Intent" which basically lets China know there is someone who wants to adopt a waiting special needs child. Next will come the BIG things,the pre-approval and the dossier.It will take 2-4 weeks to find out if we are pre-approved. If we are then we have 3 months to submit a dossier and will travel 2-4 months after that is received. I am so glad I am going to be off when all of this paprework is happening. I am trying not to get TOO excited because we all know how quickly things can change(for good or bad). I do find my self daydreaming of what it would be like to have her home. Sometimes a wave of fear comes over me but then I give it to God and know he will be leading us the whole way.:)

Hi Lori! It's me, Anne from school. So often that happens to us in this journey-that wave of fear when we are embarking on a God-adventure! You are so right to put it in the Lord's hands! No matter what difficulties may come, the lovely and wonderful will far outweigh them! Tell that to the fears that try to come! :) I'm looking forward to hearing more when you have news...
