Dossier update!!!!!! YIPPEE!!!!

Well, call it Motherly insight, intuition, or just a gut feeling, but I KNEW our FBI clearances would come today... and guess what??? They did!!! Yippee!!! I was a little concerned after reading Kari's nightmare with her FBI clearances (click HERE to read her blog about it!)... so sorry Kari... hang in there...

Ours came back fine... we were once again so relieved to know that we have no arrest record with the FBI!! ha ha... :-)
I just had this feeling the FBI clearances would come today.. so I did all my part of the dossier update last night... then today I finished collecting up the last few forms... visited the CPA to get the updated letter.... picked up a new copy of our marriage license on my planning time, etc. etc. etc..
I got all the documents notarized and we are ready to go to the capitol... except for our home study update. Our social worker has our update totally ready to go, except we are waiting on Child Abuse Checks to come back from the state of Oklahoma... those are dated back in June... so, she thinks they will be here anytime within the next 2 weeks...
So, we are REALLY close to being ready to send our dossier in for the 3rd time!!! It's almost a surreal feeling this time...
I am getting really good at redoing the documents, because with it being so close to 2008... lots of people accidentally put 08... then tried to grab the white out to fix it... only for me to have to redo the entire form... It's been a fun redo, but I'm so thankful to live in a small town... I had my bank letter within hours... I walked into the CPA's office and 10 minutes later walked out with the form completed and signed!!! I ran to the courthouse on my planning period and got a new marriage license!!! I am so thankful that all these people and business are all within blocks of my job! I am so blessed and everyone is more than helpful!!
I really think I could completely redo a dossier within 24 hours if I had to... (minus FBI clearances of course!) Let's hope this is the last redo for us.... we'll see... as I was telling someone the other day I hate to complain... cause what is a few more papers to redo when you are talking about your baby or babies lives??? I'd write out and redo a million papers if I needed to for my kids!!!
I already love those boys (or boy) so much I can hardly contain it... My Brooklyn was so sweet today... she was telling her teacher and friends at her daycare about her brother or brothers... and that they were coming from Kazakhstan... she says it REALLY well!!! It's adorable to hear my girls tell the story.. they love to tell it.. and share that Jesus told us to adopt brothers from there... cause if we don't ... they might not ever know about Jesus.... now that will definitely pull at your heart strings!!!!
We might not have a ton of material possessions in this world, but I guarantee you that my boy or boys will KNOW and feel Christ's love... and that's the most important thing in the world!!!!

Lori,
The Crutchfields (www.crutchfieldstokazakhstan.blogspot.com) assumed our last name was gobble (like gobble, gobble, gobble, like a turkey!!!!) when first meeting us... and they had this inside joke about calling us the Hokies from Oklahoma!!!! When I thought to tell her our last name was prounounced go-bull, not gobble... it became this HUGE joke, and they quickly shared how much fun they'd had with our last name!!!! LOL!
