"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

We are so excited to say that we now have our entire Dossier ready to go. Adam is droping it off tonight (along with a VERY large check) :)in Portland at our agency All God's Children (AGCI). They will add a copy of the noterized home study to it and maybe, just maybe, by this Friday, we will have a number on the wait list for a baby girl!

For those who don't know-as I didn't until we got into this process, here is what a Dossier is:
Dossier: When used in the context of adoption, this term refers to a set of appropriately authenticated and translated legal documents which are used in international adoption cases to process the adoption of a child in its own country by the adoptive parents, or for the adoptive parents to obtain the legal custody or guardianship of the child in the foreign court, so the child can be brought by the adoptive parents to the United States for adoption.

Zach will OFFICIALLY be ending his can drive at the end of this week-and we will then give a grand total for what he earned-if you still want to give him cans during this adoption process, please feel free-he loves it and we can put it toward our expenses! If you have cans for us still-call for me to pick them up, or drop them off on our porch-and thanks so much!

Attached is a picture of our Dossier ready to go-yes LOTS of paperwork!
Also, is a picture of Cassidy's dolls-she keeps them in her room together and says they are her and her new sister-very cute!


  1. We are just waiting literally on the CPS check from Iowa...and then our dossier will be off too. We are matched already, but I just can't wait for that CPS check to get in my hands so we can get that dossier off. Love the pic of the dossier :) Closer and closer! Love the pic of the dolls- too cute! Children are so precious and when they start opening their heart to a new sibling through adoption- makes me so happy!

  2. congrats on the waitlist number!!!! such an exciting time!!!! We are unofficially #1 on the boys list right now. We are anxiously awaiting "The Call" :)

  3. Welcome to the waitlist...such a great feeling...our lucy lane made #5 for us..Your kids are going to love their new baby sister :) kristi

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
