Close to being submitted?

We were able to get the corrections/updates done on Monday and drove up with all the kids to sacramento on Tuesday to get the documents apostilled and dropped off for DHL. The package arrived on Thursday. Lord willing our dossier will be submitted early this next week. We are praying for the Lord's will and timing, We miss our girls.

Dossier update

Our dossier is in Ukraine. There are two problems with the paperwork that we need to get resolved first thing next week. Both the documents we need to do will have to be notarized and then we will drive them to Sacramento to get apostilled and the dropped of for DHL to Ukraine. God is in control. I won't lie, I am stressed. But I know for certain that the Lord will work it all out for His good and His glory.

Moving forward another step

Yesterday afternoon we received our I-171H form from immigration in the mail! Sheri scrambled into town with it and we had it notarized, added it to our dossier and sent the whole package via overnight service to Sacramento to be apostilled on Monday and prayerfully be on it's way via DHL to Ukraine Wednesday or Thursday to be translated. The facilitator in Ukraine will then get a dossier submission date which will again prayerfully be in that next week.

We are thanking and praising God for His provision through this entire process and know the He will continue to show us His love, His plan, and His strength.

I need to sit down and write up the timeline up to this point, but as I recall it was 3 months to the day from the time we sent our homestudy in to USCIS to when the I-171H came in the mail.

Thank you all for your continued prayers over this process to bring our daughters home, all to be in accordance with the Lord's will of course.

We had some good friends over for dinner last night and had some great fellowship. All the children had a great time too, best I could tell. They all ended up sitting on the grass in a circle and talking (they were just missing a guitar and a camp fire :) )

The Lord does continue to show His love toward us, and I am continually amazed that He loves a creature such as myself.
