Halloween and Costumes

A family who is adopting and will also be carrying our documents will get to see their children files on Halloween.  I pray for them as they view their child's listing.  This Halloween they will hold in their hands a file that contains medical and their child's history.  Much like we will be also viewing in a few weeks or month away..  A year has passed and a few months also.  I think of Clyde often and I also think about Ellie and also Ronald.  Little Ellie's family has court on Thursday.  We choose Ellie but knew we could not make her by her 5th birthday, a friend of mine paper ready was so I released Ellie and prayed they would get to view her file.  I was able to see undated photos of Ellie.  She is precious, simply precious.  I see that she is going fit perfect in my friend's family.  Little Ronald still waits for a family to come for him and love him. I pray the perfect family for him.. I wished it could have been us but with Poppy's medical and Jake's medical it is difficult for us to carry or lift another child.  I can see him in our family crawling around.  He is a beautiful little boy.. The perfect son to have and love.

If all goes okay we will be see our children's file in early December and stay a few weeks to let them children get to know us.  This weekend we will be working on planning our trip more.  Trying to schedule for the kids and their care at home.  I can not openly post dates till we now something to share..  I will though once we have permission I can share photos and videos and some of their day to day lives.

Hard to understand why things through out our adoption was such a roller coaster of changes.  This adoption has got to have been the hardest with paperwork and the cost of paperwork. Much of our funds were tight up in documents and also updates.  Each update costed 300 or more to do.  Total for our Dossier has now topped to $16,000 of our savings to submit.  Again this took 2 years of savings.  We are blessed to have some funds in our FSP account with Reece's Rainbow but still we will be short for trip 2, our court trip.  Applying for grants and praying for a miracle for funds.

We have been budgeting and budgeting yet still it has been one thing after another.  And one delay after another.. Soon we will be pass the final stages and pray we are submitted first week of November. I will keep everyone posted on  where we stand in travel dates and submission...

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…
