Dossier is leaving on a jet plane!!!

7 Oct

I just got this email from Claire, our adoption case worker.  Our Dossier is being sent to Uganda TODAY.

Friday, October 7th — a day to remember forever!

Hi Anna,

I hope you are having a great Friday.  I wanted to let you know that your dossier will be sent to Uganda today!!!  Congratulations to you and Joshua for all of your hard work.

The next step for you is to wait for the referral.  We hope to have a referral for your family as quickly as possible.  After our staff has recieved your dossier, they will present it to the orphanage.  The orphanage will review the dossier and then approve your family to adopt.  Following this approval you will be “in line” to be matched with your children based on your request.  Our first dossier was sent to Uganda this summer and we are still waiting for a referral.  I will keep you posted on when referrals come so we can gauge what to expect for the wait time until referral.

Make sure you guys celebrate this weekend!

    I just keep thinking of the little people across the sea who will be your kids..who are dreaming about their forever family..who can’t even begin to comprehend the beauty that God has awaiting them! I think about their warm little cheeks and their laughs..and I get soo excited and start to smile. Parenthood is such a blessing! Parenthood through adoption is a beauty all its own. So thrilled for you guys! My prayers are with your!! hugs

    Waiting is hard…but I know the 9 months of “pregnancy” is similar to what you are feeling..except you can sleep at night and you don’t feel exhausted or your back isn’t hurting 🙂 You are on my heart this morning..praying God’s joy over your waiting! Hugs are sleeping at night?
