For those of you who don't know, the boys country only accepts dossiers to be submitted on Thursdays. Since ours arrived last week we were praying that it would be translated and submitted today so we could be one step closer to meeting our precious little boys. Alas, we were not on todays list. But we still thanking God and praising Him. His timing is perfect! We know that we will be submitted on the right day and be given the exact travel date that God wants us to have. We are praising Him that we have even made it this far! In the beginning it seemed so far off, and when others said, "Don't worry you will get there" it was hard to believe. But here we are! Homestudy is done, dossier is done, running around gathering paperwork is done! Now we wait for the Lord to give us that perfect date to bring home our blessings :)

But the work is not done. We still need about $21,500 to be fully funded. Please pray for that exact amount. Please take this prayer request to your churches, your friends, your family. Please pray that lack of funds does not cause these little ones to spend any more time in an orphanage. Please pray about donating and/or holding a fundraiser for these boys.

Thank you so much for all the prayers and the support!! It is awesome to know these boys are so loved by so many that have never met them, and probably never will. Thank you for seeing the potential these boys have when so many see them as throw-aways or worthless or not worthy of being adopted because they don't live in the United States.

So here's to waiting until next Thursday!! :) Wouldn't it be awesome if we could have half of that $21,500 raised by then?! I know God can do it! So let's pray!!!
