Just a Quick Update on our Adoption Process

Yesterday, I sent in the last bit of paperwork required to accompany our application to Gladney (our adoption agency).

We have also submitted everything we can up to this point for our dossier (the packet of documents required by the Ethiopian government).

At this point, all other documents we need to submit are contingent on the completion of our homestudy report. Our home visit was May 21st, so now we are just waiting for our homestudy report to be completed, and I am hopeful that will happen sometime in the next week!

Please pray with us that we will be placed on the waiting list sometime this summer. Thank you!

Congrats on getting to this point. It's a lot of paperwork and it is so nice to have it done! I can't wait until you are on the wait list! I think waiting is the hardest but it is so fun to get your referral!

Thanks for the comment!

I couldn't agree more- it is REALLY fun to think that they could be friends someday! I am VERY excited about that and I can't wait to meet you also!

I can't remember how much he weighed. I'll have to look it up. I know the first time we took him he was in the 3rd percentile for everything except his head size... that was in the 20something percetile. The next time we went he was in the 10th percentile and same as before for the head size... I'll look and get back to you on that! ;)

I'm so excited for you! I believe that God has already chosen your family members and is preparing all of you to come together.

Getting that paperwork done is HUGE! What a great feeling (albeit, a little nerve wracking to send it all out in the mail). Can't wait to hear updates!

How exciting to have that last bit of paperwork done. Fingers are crossed that the homestudy report will be completed very soon.
