Referral Accepted

I so wish I didn't need to be vague here, but sadly I will need to be just that until after court! I have accepted the referral of a little girl - and that, my friends, is all I can say at this time.
Please be praying for things to move swiftly and maybe just maybe she will be home by Christmas!
Lord willing!
I am frantically working on updating and adding some documents to my dossier so that I might be able to travel for trip one soon.
It's exciting to have something to celebrate. I can't wait to share more than that!

Dossier Prep Classes, Anyone?

I'm so happy to report that my "mini-dossier" was given an A+ rating. :) In fact, the director told me I could give dossier prep classes. Wow! I'm shocked - if you read my last post you know that I was a little more than nervous about how it would turn out since I am so not a details person - apparently my determination to have a successful adoption overrode my lack of attention to detail.
OK - it probably helps that of the 3 dossiers my agency received last week mine was the only one that actually followed the directions they sent.
Now, let the waiting begin - some more!
I am still hopeful that things will move quickly. But trying to manage my expectations.
My agency sent me a picture of the sweetest little girl - they are waiting for the medical. So we shall see.

Mini Dossier......check!

Today I shipped my mini dossier off to my adoption agency! Very exciting to have this requirement complete! I'm praying that there are not many errors, OK no errors would be ideal! I am just not a details person and dossier prep is all about the details! The millions of details! Hopefully, I will get an email from my agency letting me know it's on it's way to translation! That would be amazing. A few little bumps today, but nothing like last week.
I'm dreaming of my little darling! I can't see your face yet, but you are already in my heart!
