! (the last piece of paperwork needed for our Dossier to be complete!)
We went Tuesday afternoon to get everything else notarized and state certified, made copies of everything, and went to Fed Ex to ship it off! All 2 and a half pounds in a box... After a long day and a long 6 months of working on all of the paperwork, I wanted to hug the Fed Ex lady!! And beg her to guard it with her life :) Of course we had to get a picture!
Now, our agency is sending our Dossier to DC, then on to Ethiopia, and we will hear that we are officially registered and on the waiting list soon!!
Also, just another example of the Lord providing- we received a grant from our church for the exact amount we were needing to submit our Dossier, just in time to submit it. With that, our t-shirt fundraiser, and the craft fair, we had just enough! Now, we will have about a year or so to save and raise the rest before we receive our referral..
We are working on getting a new summer color of our t-shirt design and going to place another order of them soon :) Thank you for spreading the word to your friends and getting more people wanting to buy shirts, it has been a huge blessing!!
It was a sweet Mother's Day with my little girl.. so thankful for her and can't wait to have both my babies home together! (Ben somehow managed to get her hand prints done without me noticing during all the party craziness- I will treasure this!!)
