Signed Sealed Delivered...

Ah! I can't believe we're finally able to post this! Today has arrived, at last!

Tonight our paper chase came to an end. It's been just under four months since we submitted our application to our adoption agency and tonight we mailed in our dossier!!!

In just over 24 hours our adoption agency should be receiving the [large] stack of papers. The first lag in this journey has [almost] come to an end. The last four months have flown by. We've been stretched, challenged, frustrated, overjoyed, and blessed in more ways than we can express.

And, tonight....we're grinning ear to ear, with champagne in hand!

Here are a few pictures from today...

Our kitchen table.
Documents County Certified AND State Authenticated.
Hooray for snow days and a completed dossier!!!

And, in a later post I'll write about our amazing FedEx story. God works in crazy ways!

With MUCH joy,
