The post I've been waiting to get to post... NEWS!!! BIG NEWS!!!!

I can not even express the emotions when writing this tonight... today has been incredible...

What a day!! We are within hours of another AMAZING yard sale... WOW! Once again we stand in awe of God and how much he shines through our family, community, church, and friends... We are more than blessed!! We've only been home a few minutes... cause the donations just kept rolling in... and in a few short hours we will head back to the church to really get it all set up... (5 AM will come WAY to soon!)...

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped out tonight... I could not have made it without you.. (my mom, Adrienne, Julie, Pastor Mike, Justin Ray C. :-), Julie Hall ;-), Derrick, my girls, Phil... the list goes on and on... Christy and Cody helped for hours on Monday night... and then we all worked last night... it's amazing how it all comes together in the end.... God is SO good...
and now I will have NEWS to tell anyone that asks......

DRUM ROLL PLEASE.........

Our dossier will be sent to Kazakhstan tomorrow!!! (This means that our dossier was successfully been approved and processed at the DC consulate!!!) Let me tell you this has been a HUGE step for us!!! We are thrilled and beside ourselves... wondered if this day would EVER come... yes, we really are doing this... and yes, we are coming boy(s)...

This will all happen in God's PERFECT timing... and when it brings our Savior and Lord the MOST glory and honor... and who.. I ask you WHO would dare want it to happen before then?!
Thank you Lord for always encouraging us at the EXACT moment that we need it... Thank you Lord for providing and carrying us through this amazing journey!!!

Thanks to all of you for all your love, support, and prayers...
We are truly blessed... and always remember:
"And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name, welcomes me!” Matt 18:5

I will let you know how the yard sale goes.... if you live locally and have donations... we are still taking items.. it's NEVER to late...
Please pray that God will bless, and touch hearts and lives... and while all that is going on (touching hearts and lives and witnessing to others for the kingdom of God)... he WILL take care of the finances of this adoption... it's done.. he called us to it... He will see it through!!!! "The one who calls you is faithful and HE WILL DO IT!" Thes. 5:24

This is the post so many of us have been waiting to read too!!!!! Congrats on making HUGE progress!!! Again, I so wish we could come to your yard sale this weekend! I have a huge list of stuff I want to get for Sarah's birthday, Christmas and for the little boy on the way. I'm sure you'd have some of it too! Sooooooo happy for you all!

Congratulations!!! One very important step closer. Yay!!!
You're more then halfway there. The next phase shouldn't be too long since you're looking to adopt a son or two. The majority IA request young healthy girls so they usually move swiftly when they see a qualified family looking to adopt a boy.
So happy for you and your family. And enjoying your blog.

Praise the Lord! I have been following your story (We adopted from Russia in Dec. 08 from America World) and am so excited to hear this good news today!

We are pondering what God would have us to do regarding another adoption and reading blogs like yours inspires me to trust in God and know that where He leads us He will be faithful to provide what we need...and to His glory.

Praying all will go smoothly,
