USCIS approval and updates

Currently we are gathering up our documents once again times two.
So two sets of everything means double the funds again.  Heart breaking to start from the beginning with documents.  But we are steps ahead with our Home study and our USCIS approval.  The USCIS approval is the most important document needed in our Dossier.

This has been a very difficult week, yet another little girl passes away yesterday.  My heart cries out again for the parents and family.  After the first little girl and now another it breaks one's heart.  On the 25th of April it
will be now 5 years since the death of our daughter Gennie~beane.  I wished I could hold her once again in my arms.  I tell all the children about Gennie and how precious she was.  Katya ask me each night about Gennie and if she is there still in Heaven.  Hard to explain to a child that children do die with out scaring them.  Jake Gennie's biological brother also has Cystic Fibrosis and his health has had many difficulties over the pass years.  Having a child with an illness or disability is a life time commitment.  No days off for either parent.  It is a 24 hour, 7 day a week job.. Do not get me wrong I love my children but it is very hard work, scheduling medical appointments, keeping log of meds and therapy through out the day..  Believe me our family has been truly blessed to be able to parent each of these precious little ones.  Even when they throw fits and Jake destroys his room as we sleep.  There  are so many days when we receive the best of hugs and kisses.  Endless artwork work to hang on our refrigerator and small handmade gifts.  I look forward again in being able to parent the newest little members to our family.  Time is passing us by quickly and we still are in bug needs of funds for the Ellie and the remainder funds for Clyde.  Such a mountain to move in such little time left.  It will be closer to fall when we travel due to both children's ages.  Both children have to be age five when adopted due to their country's law.

Daily our family looks at their photos and prepare for their arrival into our family.  Our family has missed 4 years of birthdays and  years of holidays.  So shortly after their 5th Birthday we will be able to celebrate their 5th Birthday in their new family.  A new beginning to both children's lives.  Please during our wait, please say a prayer for both children.  Pray that they both stay healthy and we raise the much needed funds to adopt.
God bless

We have date and a new little girl

Letting everyone know we have a date to travel in Mid~January.

FBI updated :O))

Today we drove 30 miles to our Local Sheriff station to be finger printed once again.  Praying this will be the last and final time our fingers have to be printed.  Each time you  think it might get easier but my fingers just can not seem to relax.  So far just this adoption we have been ink printed three times and had bio~metric once for USCIS.  With each set of fingerprints means additional costs to our adoption.  The updates alone have added up quickly and we will still have to notarize and apostle each document.  With 60 or so documents it is adding up quickly at $20 a piece for notary and $20 for apostles.  SO a big hunk of our savings we have set back for our trip.  Once our dossier is submitted we will be working towards raising the funds we need to travel with.  And with two new little ones this means two of everything from Airlines, Child's Visas, Children Medicals, Immigration fees and the list goes on and on.  Every dollar so far has came from our savings.  Not one penn…
