So there isn't a whole lot of new changes but we wanted to take the chance to update you on a few things...

First, we have made a decision about the age ranges and genders of the children that we plan to adopt. We will be requesting a boy ages 0-2 and a girl ages 2-4. We are in the process of updating some paperwork changes that have to be made because of our decision to adopt two children instead of just one. Mostly minor changes, nothing that should slow down our process.

We had another yard sale on Saturday and were able to raise about $400 (thanks to the kind donations of our friends Chuck and Randi Bader). With the money that we raised from the yard sale we now have about $1,650 left to raise in order to be able to send our paperwork to Rwanda.

We are expecting our immigration paperwork anytime now and that will be the last piece of paperwork that we need for our dossier to be complete! We are really excited to be to this point and are getting really excited about sending our dossier to Rwanda. Once it is received by the Ministry of Family and Gender in Rwanda we will be waiting for about 3-6 months before we receive approval from their government.

Please be praying that the timing of everything works out and that we are able to get all of our paperwork together and sent out as soon as possible. We are so blessed to have the prayers and encouragement from all of you! On those days where we feel impatient or frustrated your encouraging words mean so much to us.
