We sent our dossier to America World on Monday evening and it arrived safely on Wednesday morning! It will be reviewed twice and if everything looks good it will be sent to Ethiopia on September 3rd. This is what's referred to in adoption language as our DTE....Dossier To Ethiopia. The waiting officially begins at this point. The current wait time for an infant female is 7-11 months, although recently the trends we've seen have been as short as five months. We have a lot to do in the mean time to prepare for her. We will try to stay busy and pray that God will give us peace and patience through the waiting.
We have been blessed to feel Gods calling in our lives to adopt a child from Ethiopia. We are requesting a little girl to even things up a bit in our family. If you follow us on this blog please be praying for us along the way.
