Our Paperwork has been sent to USCIS!

Our paperwork has been mailed to the USCIS. You might ask what that is...well, it is: "United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is a bureau of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS)."

I never thought I would write a check to Homeland Security but, there you have it...it has been written.

I pray this process goes smoothly. I want to pray for it to go fast...but, I instead will pray for everything to go in God's timing instead.

And yes, our home Study was completed. It was easy breezy!

Monthly Ethiopia Family Gathering!

Tonight we went to the Jordan Valley Fountains to meet and hang out with the Springfield Ethiopian Children Group. What a fun time to get to know some families. The kids "loved" their time there. When we were leaving they said, "Can we go get our baby/babies now?" Love it!

Here's some pict's at the Fountains!

Paperwork is going to USCIS

Well, our paperwork is complete. Next step is USCIS approval. So, it's heading there.
We just pray that that part goes smoothly. As soon as we get their approval (6 to 12 weeks), then we can send our dossier to Ethiopia.

It's all moving pretty fast! But, we still say, "All in God's timing, not ours!" We want this all to happen exactly the way He wants it.

Dear Ethiopia,
We are moving towards coming your way. We can't wait to hold the baby/babies that you have for us. Our hearts are there and here...
