Paper Chasing Hurrah!

Oh my goodness we are so grateful for all the kind words and encouragement we have received in the last 48 hours.
I can't begin to express how much it means to us.
We have been BUSY. 
Coming around a second time makes the paperwork a bit easier in that we understand what we are doing this time, BUT the paperwork has quadrupled in four years.  Crazy stuff! 
Thankfully our stateside facilitator is absolutely the best in the world (Nancy T.) and she is willing to answer every single one of my three million and one questions with the patience of Job.
Even though we formally announced this week - we have actually been in process since the beginning of October which means we are close to the end of much of the paper chasing.  We have one more Home study meeting, have finished all of our required classes, are finishing the medicals, Rob's passport arrived two days ago etc. etc.... Three weeks of paper chasing .. WOO HOO!!
Many of you have asked for our timeframe.... Well.. the short answer is April/May for travel... Lord Willing! 
That gives us 6 months to pray for our girl.
6 months to cover her in prayers.
Join us!
And since it is Fatherless Friday... Here are a few of the fatherless who would really like to have a home!
