Revelation 3:8 (New International Version)
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

The child is the beauty of God present in the world – that greatest gift to a family.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

We received our I800a approval and our dossier is completed.

Hi Everyone, Thank you for praying for us. We received approval from our country to adopt from a Hague country and we have completed our dossier! On Tuesday it will travel to a friends house who will pack it away in her suitcase. This mom is adopting in the same country and she will hand it to our attorney. We will then wait for the date to travel. I can not tell you how confident I am that we were only able to complete this dossier because you were praying. As the last required document was obtained, I broke down and cried. Adoption is not new to us but these children are. I think that just like the birth of a child, each adoption is unique and special. We as a family pray and talk about the children. We grow to love them many months before we even physically meet them. Our children do not see my belly grow and don't get to feel the baby kicking but they look at their pictures and help us to prepare for their arrival. Come to our house and ask the kids who these children are....they will tell you that these are their brothers and sisters who are coming. Our kids will even tell you the names that they want. Our children are very much in tune with these children coming, getting the I-800a and dossier completed was a joyful day in our home. Thank you for praying, please continue.
