It Came!

Our I-600A came in the mail today!
This is the last thing we have been waiting for.  Now everything can be sent off Wednesday morning to be apostilled.  We will use a courier so that the documents can be walked in to the Secretary's office the same day they arrive.  She will then mail the apostilled documents straight to the hands of our facilitator.

Wow!  I can hardly believe that the paper chase is over, or will be this week.
There is still so much that has to happen before we can travel.
The documents have to arrive safely to their country of destination.
We will pay translation fees to have our dossier translated.
 All the documents have to be done correctly.
Next, or dossier has to be submitted.
Then we will be invited to travel.
John and I hope we get to travel in May.

Thank you for all your prayers.
Thank you for your support.
Thank you for every way you have helped to get us where we are in the process.
Thank you for helping two precious little boys half way around the world.
Blessings to all of you!
Please check out the baby bibs in the previous post.  They were all made with love by a sweet friend.  So far no one has bid on them. :(
As we get closer to traveling, we need to have all of the adoption costs sooner rather than later.  
They would make wonderful baby gifts, if you don't have little ones in the house..
I was also thinking that if you don't have a baby in mind that you can give one of the bibs too, you can still donate $10 for one of the bibs, and I will hand deliver the one you choose to one of the children at Doyle and Fischer's orphanage.  And if I am allowed, I will take a picture.
Just an idea.
Also, I just finished another tote bag.  Now that we have our immigration approval, I am inspired to work on the bags again.  I will post it later tonight!
Thank you and many blessings to all of you!

Just in case you were wondering, Doyle is 3 years and five months old and Fischer is 9 months old right now.   A part of me is so excited at the though of having two little ones running around the house.  The other part of me wonders if I am too old.
Then I think of Sarah and Abraham.  I'm not too old after all. :)


  1. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So exciting!!!!

    I wish I knew what gender we are expecting for the bibs. I'm looking forward to seeing your totes!

  3. YAY! Congratulations Christine!

  4. Congratulations! I know how excited you must be, but will be even more excited when you hear they made it safely to Ukraine for translation. You are not too old!

  5. So thrilled for you guys - but especially for your boys! They don't know how lucky they are yet!

  6. I emailed you asking if I could purchase both the shamrock and heart earrings, but did not hear back. Is it still possible to get both?

  7. So glad to hear things are progressing. As far as being too is harder for me with two babies in my early 40's than when I was in my 20's with 4 babies 5 years apart...but you still just take it day by day and you sleep really good at night. :) Soooooo fun!!!!

  8. You really aren't too old! They will keep you young! :D

  9. Hi!You stayed the course with God's direction now the end is near two less orphans are in the world. Blessings , Pat

  10. Honey, you're a lot younger than me. I know that for a fact. Lol. And I have an almost 3 year old and a 17 month old running around. You're not too old.

  11. I didn't know you were adopting again! How exciting! Did I miss which country or have you not shared it? Congratulations! I know what you mean - I will have a 5 and 2 year old at home in a few days....

  12. Such exciting news!
    You are not too old. I was blessed with my daughter when I was 38. And then I was shocked to be blessed with my son when I was 41. I never thought I would have a child past age 40 but I don't regret it. And my kids keep me young with all of their activity.

  13. Congratulations and Blessings!!!

    Too late for me I believe. Isn't there an age limit to adopt such young ones from Ukraine?


Thanks for taking the time to comment! Blessings!
