Since July 27, 2017 I have fought to get my dossier completed.  Document after document just when will it end.  After rushing last week to what I thought was our last 4 documents I found out today ther was another 4 documents needing to be done.  This means 4 more notarized ones, 4 more apostilles and also 4 more hours to drive to Baton Rouge and another 4 hours back... 

This also means 4 times $20 for notary                         ($80)
Apostilles 4 times $20                                                    ($80)
Gas to get there and back for 570 miles                         ($114.00)
Breakfast, lunch and dinner while on the road around    ($40)      

Prayers said during this trip 5 MILLION AND 4 prayers, pee breaks every 30 minutes if I leave later in the morning.  So I get up early so they will still be a little sleepy and sleep a little extra so no pee stops.  Jake I hook up to his feeding pump so no worries on feeding him, he'll have a full tummy.  But praying no poopies there and back..  Jake loves to ride in the car so he sits quietly as I drive.  Now Poppy she talks and talks and talks and bugs Katya.  Well Chrissie she reads and Patrick is has his ear buds in and rocks with the music.  And me I pray and pray and pray.

God guide me through this last 4 documents.  Get them there by this weekend so on Monday they head over to my soon to be new children's country. Bless each document as it is stamped and notarized.  It is not just pieces of paper but two children needing homes.  Our Home in our family...

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…
