I just breathed a huge sigh of relief.  Our dossier is done.  Done.  I think I've mentioned a hundred times how much I hate paperwork.  I feel like for the past year and a half, it's been hovering over my head.  It's done.  Thursday we will scan and email all of it to our case worker, she will go over it with a fine tooth comb and note any changes that need to be made.  Hopefully there will be none and we can send it to Ethiopia!  I did converse with our agency shortly today and she said she is already on the lookout for a little boy for our family.  EEEK!  Although she cannot give us a time frame, she is optimistic that our wait shouldn't be long.  Part of me is terrified, part of me wants to jump up and down like I just won a trip to Hawaii.  Either way, it is out of our hands and all in Gods timing. 

"Thank you, Lord, for working out all the details.  Thank you for laying this on our hearts.  Thank you for giving us encouragement every step of the way.  Thank you for not letting the numbers and stress get in the way of our decision to follow your will for our lives.  Thank you for that precious boy on the other side of the world that has no idea how much he is already loved.  Prepare our hearts for him and his heart for us.  Now hustle up and get him home!"
