Dossier Errors

Sighhh-we sent our dossier to CCAI for critical review, and sure enough an error had been found. Freddy's employment verification was not properly notarized even though everything got certified and authenticated by two different states! CCAI said we can chance it or just redo it to be certain that it does pass....we've thought about just chancing it...but we have time to fix it now-so why the risk? Freddy's boss was nice enough to redo everything-poor thing he must think we're nuts. I really do appreciate everyone who has helped us in this adoption, its made it that much more special. Our friends are already LID (log in date) check out their page on 'REDTHREAD LETTERS' we're so happy for them. It gives us hope for our LID. We have not done our fingerprints yet...I though we'd go ahead of time...but its seems we will go on our appointment because of our crazy schedules. Its in God's hands...our job is to just be obedient. We have an additional set of friends who are contemplating an adoption in China, so we are praying for them 'Davi and Jackie'. I pray God leads them where they need to be in this life. Adoption truly is our life-motto, and its only because of our lives since we've adopted our daughter Hope, as well as the lives of our friends, who have also adopted. LUKE 10:2 comes to mind right now... He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. That is how I feel about comes in many forms...sometimes I've encountered adoption just by loving on our neighbors and making them apart of our family. We're all adopted by God.

Biometric appointment received!

The good news is that our Biometric appointment was just received-woohooo! The bad news is that the appointment, isn't until July 3rd! I hope we can go ahead of time! And we just sent our dossier to CCAI-Fl for critical review...ayayayay. We also managed to capture enough shots of the family for China and we got family time-yeah. This coming week is Vacation Bible School and so the children are excited to be reunited with friends this summer. Our pool is getting great use, the kids are literally in there every morning after breakfast, I am not ready for the pool yet..I am still recovering from a bad sunburn;( We are still praying for our friends' referral and we have officially begun our adult community group on Tuesdays-which has been AMAZING! This week we are walking 5 days with God in prayer using Stormie Omartian's 'Power of a Praying Woman' work book. I had to send our dossier away, so that I can be focused on God because it was becoming obsessive. Everyday I was thinking what else am I missing for the dossier? Hopefully, it all goes well and it can be sent already! CCAI just informed us that the CCCWA has a new computer system that logs us in and has a set date for our dossiers to come in, after that we get one 90 day extension and then that's it...we may lose our referral if we exceed that....ayyyyy. I am not worried really, because we're ready to go...unless immigration takes dreadfully long, we should be ok our dead line is October. I was hoping to be in China by October-sigh! Well I hope everyone is having a great start to their summer...please send in your summer ideas and I am running out of them.

USCIS Receipt

Today we received our USCIS notice that it will take 10-14 days of processing. So we must wait now for our biometrics appointment. We're making progress somewhere....Our family and friends are now starting a community group on Tuesdays for Bible study and prayer. Please continue to pray for my friends Adrianna and Jorge and for the other orphans who are not matched yet or may never be matched with parents.
