So, we had to do add some documentation to our home study, which is not out of the ordinary from what I understand, BUT it has put a delay in our getting our Official, certified write up! The good news is that the draft has been reviewed by our agency, and it is now in Brock’s country being reviewed by the facilitator there. What is wonderful about our agency sending it there to be reviewed first is that she knows what the judge in the region is looking for, so that way, we can make sure that everything is perfect and will be far less likely to have to do any updates or add any documentation when it is time for court! We are looking to have it in our hands by the end of the week! After that, we will send that, along with some other documents into Immigration (USCIS) for them to approve us to adopt from Brock’s country. While we are waiting on that, we will be compiling more documents for our registration dossier to send to the Powers That Be in Brock’s country so they can register us in country in order to receive our travel date to finally meet our little man! Oh my, I cannot wait to get my arms around him!
This is where we need loads of help and prayers everyone! When we send in our Dossier, literally $14,500 will have to go along with it! Then we will still have to buy visas, plane tickets, hotel and meals! We have a plan put in place as far as savings and such goes, but we also have Faith that God will help us along with the rest! I truly believe the saying “If God brings you to it, He will get you through it.” I do believe that He put us on this journey to finish it! Please consider our Beach Giveaway fundraiser; if that does not interest you, and you would still like to help we will be launching some new fundraisers throughout the next few months! Prayers for us in this process and our little guy are so greatly appreciated! Also, you can tell others about our story! You never know who you will inspire to help save a life, whether it is Brock’s or another waiting child.

My apologies for the sadness, but I feel like I should share the realities of his life with you all. I know that one day these posts will be filled with happy pictures of a little boy thriving! God Bless you all!!
