We're cooking with gas right now. The first half of our dossier is on its way to Eastern Europe, and the second half is being furiously gather as we speak. I anticipate that the rest of it will be completed this week or next.
If you look at our fund raising thermometer, you'll see that our financial goals are being met quickly AND that we've actually increased our goal by $2,000. This $2,000 extra will allow us to bring home another child should we find one that we would like to pursue prior to our leaving or accept a "blind referral" once we get there. A blind referral would be based on the parameters which have been spelled out in detail in our homestudy, for those of you who are not familiar with this term. Currently we are approved for two children up to the age of 5 with specific special needs.
You may remember that we initially wanted to adopt a two year old little girl from Colombia. We still want to adopt another little girl, so we are leaving ourselves open for that possibility and making arrangements in advance should the opportunity arise.
Your continued prayers and support are very much appreciated as we continue this journey.
