Our Paper Chase Begins!

Now we're really on our way.  We were assigned our Family Coordinator yesterday & were contacted to begin our Home Study.  I believe between the two emails there were 19 attachments! :-)  It's exciting and overwhelming all at the same time.  I'm getting ready to leave on a mission trip to Malawi, Africa (not going to make it to Ethiopia on this trip  :-(  ) this Sunday so have already been feeling overwhelmed this week... Ah, to have more time...
So, the attachments were primarily to begin applying to the government to adopt our child & also to begin putting together our Dossier which is the document that will be presented to the Ethiopian government in order for them to approve us to adopt a child from their country.  I have not yet had the opportunity to view all of the attachments so more to come on this as we learn more. 
We value the prayers of each and every one of you that God will provide for this connection with the child that he has planned for us!
