Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? -Matthew 6:26

As we walk through this adventure called life, we remind ourselves that we are all precious children of our Father-- those of us who have walked a little further down the road striving to guide those who have been entrusted to our care for a time. Here is our journey down this path.

DTC--Dossier To China

After one last snag that our amazing adoption dossier consultant was able to work out in record time, our dossier was sent to China today and should arrive there on Monday. I am trying not to think of the disasters that could happen (think Tom Hanks & Castaway!) on the trip there! It will have a few last minute preparations by the China division of our adoption agency and then they will walk it over and hand deliver it to the CCAA office on Monday afternoon. We were told we likely won't get word of a Log in Date for several weeks, but it sure is nice to know it is in their hands (almost!).

Here it is!!!!

Hey everybody....Well, after all of this time--it is finished. This morning I went by FedEx and mailed our completed dossier to the adoption agency...what a process. The stack of papers actually didn't look as big as it felt! We had to include about 13 documents, letters, financial information, copies of our passports, etc. as well as pictures of our family (and a 'small' check). Once the adoption agency receives it and reviews it they will send it on to China--possibly as early as next Friday! So now we wait to hear about a baby!!!!JenniferPS Click the link below to see the pictures we sent as well as a few of the completeed paperwork. (The one in Chinese is on every document from the Chinese Embassy authenticating the paperwork for China)
