Today we got some GREAT news! Our dossier is on it's way across the ocean! It feels miraculous, since only one week ago we got word the dates were wrong and we needed to re-do some stuff that wasn't fun the first time we did it. However, we were able to get everything taken care of in one day and sent it to our agency who did the final apostilling and sent it on it's way. Our agency sure is working hard for us and for Dillon!
Our agency's director told us it is still realistic for us to travel in MAY. Yes, folks...MAY!!! My face hurts I'm smiling so much! So, here's how it works. Our dossier will arrive in the capitol of Dillon's country in approximately 4 days. We were told that once there, it will be translated and certified before being sent to the region where Dillon is located. Our director said it typically takes four weeks to hear back from them.
Another exciting aspect to our adoption is the fact that my youngest sister and her husband are also adopting from the same country as we are, and they are making their first trip at the end of April to meet their little girl! They've been in this process for well over a year, so it is amazing that our trips are so close together. These little cousins will arrive home within weeks or months of each other, and 2011 will be a year of miracles for both our families.
We give thanks to the One who put us on this journey! Only He can orchestrate our lives so beautifully. Even with bumps along the way, I can say without any doubt that this is HIS path for us...a path bathed in His love for Dillon.
