Well, I was going to post a bunch of pictures, but blogger isn’t letting me upload anything at the moment, so I’ll just tell you the news and save the 5K and 5-year-old birthday pics for later… (sorry)
Awesome Announcement #1: We got the Golden Ticket!!!
Our dossier is complete! I’m am making plans to drive to Austin – hopefully this week – to have it all apostilled and then send it off to Kirk’s country!! This is a major step, and I’m so excited we’re finally at this point! Our Family Sponsorship Page on Reeces Rainbow will soon be moved to the ‘Almost There’ category!
Is anybody else dancin’ a jig, or was that just me?
Speaking of our Family Sponsorship Page… have you guys checked it out recently? If you’ve looked at it today, then you won’t be surprised by…
Awesome Announcement #2: Our 5K Fundraiser wasn’t just a Walk to Bring Him Home, but a Walk to Bring HER Home as well.
Yep. We are adding a little girl to our adoption. I wish I could upload a cute picture of Lori to show you, but you can visit our FSP to see her. (Hint: She’s the little girl hugging Kirk in this post.)
Lori is the same age as Kirk, and they are in the same groupa in the same orphanage. Her picture on Reeces Rainbow had caught my eye from the very beginning, but it wasn’t until the last month or so that Jeff and I seriously considered adding her, and begin to pray about it. Finally, on Thursday, we knew what the Lord wanted us to do, and this morning we officially committed to her. Just in time, too, because a few hours later, our Golden Ticket arrived in the mail. No pomp & circumstance. Just a plain piece of paper… with the authority to move us to the next stage of this journey.
