DTE soon!!!

So that precious piece of paper Finally came in the mail yesterday!!! I quickly made copies and headed off to Fedex it overnight to our adoption agency! While there I made my husband pose for a quick picture...this is a huge milestone..8 1/2 months of paperwork...tears..praying...praying some more.. to mail it was the best feeling ever! As I was driving home from mailing it I was pondering when my DTE date would be and started laughing when I realized how funny God can be at times..Each time I got pregnant whether by chance or by trying I ALWAYS got pregnant in February so I guess he saw fit for another February pregnancy:)

So my Family coordinator emailed me today:
Dear Anthony & Paige,

Your dossier was successfully received today. Thank you for sending it so quickly. It will be taken next week (weather permitting) to be further authenticated at the State Department and Ethiopian Embassy. After we receive it back from the Embassy, we send them out within 1 to two weeks.

If there are no delays at all, your dossier will be sent to Ethiopia next Friday.

Have a blessed weekend with the paper-chasing weight off of your shoulders!

So What Does DTE mean?(Dossier to Ethiopia)
This is the date that they go by when considering your place in line for a refferal. How they determine this is by your request..
We requested a boy 0-6 mths and a girl 18mth-5yrs old(siblings) if siblings are not available when it is our turn the we would have a choice to accept just a baby boy then we would try to adopt a girl from the WCL(waiting child list) This is a list of older children that are available for adoption.

How long will we wait??
Well right now the current wait time is 3-6 mths for a boy and 8-11 mths for a girl but because we are requesting siblings we are really unsure of how long..we are praying with the rate at which children are being adopted lately that it will not be too long but that is up to the Lord. As frustrated as I get I know he has our children already picked out and we just have to wait to meet them!
So thank you all for your prayers and support and keep checking in for updates!
