Our Dossier has made it to Germany! So, well on it's way to our Eastern European country. When it arrives, it will be translated and submitted for our referrals of Joseph and Samuel. Then, what we've all been waiting for will finally happen. We will receive travel dates to go and meet our boys!
After our first trip, which we're hoping will be by October at the latest, we will come home and assemble our stage 2 dossier documents. A lot less than the first round. We'll also have to deal with USCIS, again, but also a much shorter process. All in all, we should head over to pick the boys up about 4 months after our first visit. Please, continue to pray that things will move as quickly and smoothly as possible. We don't want Joseph and Samuel in those orphanages any longer than necessary!
We still need to raise about $7500 and are hoping to take a chunk out of that with our Yard Sale on Saturday. I'll be sure to update you. Also, I've had a couple of friends ask about the total from the Celebrating Home fundraiser. We raised $324 and will do another one in October. Lots of exciting things coming up. I am organizing another blog giveaway. If you have anything you'd like to donate, please let me know. These have been the easiest way to raise funds and spread the word about our boys, so we'll keep doing them.
Thank you for praying and supporting our family on this journey. Keep watching, I have an announcement coming soon about a new blog I'm starting. I love to advocate for the kids on Reece's Rainbow and since one little girl has our hearts, I'm going to go full steam ahead and try to find her a family!
