It is making its way !

I can not believe how fast my dossier is traveling! When I mailed it Tuesday they told me it would not arrive to its destination until Thursday, May 6th....Well when I looked up my tracking number this afternoon it is already in France.  I couldn't believe it I started to cry just to know a part of me is getting so much closer to my baby! Does that sound crazy or what ? But that is  how I feel.......... surely it being that close it won't take it that long to arrive at it's destination.

Just to think my baby has no idea that he has a family that loves him and can't wait to bring him home, he is going to be showered with so much love he won't know what to think !!

Mailed off !!!

Yesterday I mailed my dossier it felt so weird to put that paperwork in that envelope and let it out of my sight! I hope and pray it makes it OK.....I also felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. So now what to do next, I have so much to do and don't know where to start.  I just keep thinking about meeting my little man and I just can't wait, I hope I don't scare him because I just want to scoop him up and kiss him all over his little face!

Today I got the best Birthday present ever, all my papers were apostille and ready to go in the mail tomorrow.
It is so hard to believe that all the paper chasing is over . I hope everything is correct and in order and that I will be getting a travel date soon.

I GOT IT !!!!!!!!

When I got home from work, Alaina (my daughter) checked the mail and there it was !!!! We were all screaming and going crazy I am sure the neighbors thought we had gone mad but who cares !!! The one form I have been waiting on to go get my baby.  Will go to the State House on Monday and get all my papers apostille, I called them and they told me to be there first thing and leave them and they would call me when they were done. 
So I hope everything goes in the mail the first of next week. I am so excited....  I am so much closer to meeting my little angel.

Finally Good News

I received an email saying that my 171H was mailed to me the first of this week !!!!! WOOO HOOO!!!!! This means I should get it by the end of the week I hope, so Monday I will be traveling to the State House to get all my papers apostille and then off to the post office I will go. Thank you Jesus....... hold on little angel your mommys getting closer !!!!

Please Pray

Found out today that a lot of my paperwork that was notarized back in December will expire by June 15th. Please pray that my 171 H comes this week or the first of next week!  I think if I have to get these papers redone I will scream.  It is OK if it is something I can do on my own but if I have to depend on someone else to do it.....ohh Lord nobody wants to cooperate and get it done. Please pray I get it soon so I can mail my dossier  to the Ukraine ASAP!!!!

Busy While I Still Wait

Still waiting on that last form but boy have I been busy! Having a huge yard sale this weekend to help us raise some more money to get Duncan home. My garage is packed full of clothes, household items, toys and the list goes on and on and on. I have spent hours organizing everything, and I am still not finished.   Thanks to all who have donated we couldn't have done it without your support.  Still checking and rechecking my paperwork trying to make sure everything is exactly right so when that last piece is here I will take a trip to Columbia to get everything apostille then off to the post office I will go!! We have decided his full name will be Andrew Duncan Freeman, I wish he knew how much his mommy already loves him !

Finally received an email from Charleston from CHO Adoptions they finally got my packet that had to be resent by the homestudy agency.  It was LOST the first go round talk about being upset, the agency said they had never had this to happen....well I guess I had to be the first. So thankful it was straightened out before the weekend or I would have been so worried wondering if it would ever make it there. I just keep thinking this will all happen within God's time not mine.
