It's really in the mail this time!

I hand delivered the nearly complete dossier to the PO lady today, so I know it'll be to Hopscotch Wednesday or Thursday at the latest. Buddy was home in time to go to the Bank to get our last certificate of true copy's notarized. (We came out of the little office to find Samuel upside down in a chair with his feet on the arms and his head under a table. "There's gum under here!") That means our reference letters can be apostilled and sent directly to Hopscotch this week and we will be COMPLETELY done!

I have 3 grant apps in the works, so I'm quite hopeful to find out good things. People are happy to share in the garage sale, which is cool. And we've had some lovely donations on our sponsor page. Thank you soooooo much! It helps to see we're getting closer and closer to having things taken care of. God is good!

I just wanted to tell you how incredibly excited I am for you and your family! We recently came home from Ukraine with our 3.5 year-old son, Evan (who also has arthrogryposis and who we found on Reece's Rainbow). Before we found Evan, we seriously considered adopting Natia/Hannah, but after a lot of prayer, we just knew that there was another family out there who she was meant to be with. I absolutely fell in love with her beautiful face the moment I saw her and it was so hard to sit back and watch her "wait" for what seemed like forever! I was thrilled to learn that her forever family had found her and am even more thrilled to know what an amazing family she will be joining! We prayed so long and so hard that her forever family would find her and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that she is meant to be a part of your family! We are enjoying following your journey to bring her home and cannot wait to see you altogether as a family!

I'm not sure if you know, but there is a FANTASTIC support group for arthrogryposis online:

It has been a wonderful resource for us and all of the members are great! We would love for you to join us if you are interested!

Your family is in our prayers!

I'm so glad to hear everything is falling into place. I guess falling makes it sound like it happened accidentally - when I know it has been a lot of work. I'm so excited that it is drawing closer and closer!

Doesn't it feel good? Now we wait. :)
