Adoption Update



We are so close to getting the finalized copies of our home study reports.  

YEAH!  

What's next?

1.  Fingerprinting with USCIS (hopefully in May).
2.  Wait for the I-171--a very important document.
3.  Go to Austin to get everything authenticated at the state level.
4.  Send everything to AWAA--they do all their "stuff" on our paper baby.  I will post all the details when we get to that point.

AND Hopefully...

We will have a log in date (LID) sometime in late July, early August.

THEN...the wait for a referral begins.

As of now, the wait for an infant girl is 7-9 months.

Please pray that everything continues to move smoothly.  

We are on schedule, with very minor hiccups.


*** Please pray for all those involved in this complicated process!  There are have been some issues with power outages in Ethiopia.  This is causing some major delays and frustration for all involved.***


Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.   Psalm 9:10
