One Giant Exhale

We mailed off our dossier!!!  
Over 500 pages of personal documents, tests, & evaluations are now traveling to our agency (AWAA) in D.C.
Bless that FedEx driver!  :)


I'm breathing a little easier since yesterday.
Here are some photos...







Photo taken by a kind (& camera phobic) FedEx man.  :)






Future Timeline:


Our dossier will be sent from our agency to our attorney in Honduras.  It will then be translated into Spanish and authenticated by the Honduran government. After that, it will be presented and approved by INHFA.  Once approved, we will be officially placed on the waiting list for our little girl.  
Timeline for all of this:  Absolutely No Clue.


Here's what we will be doing next:  Fundraising, applying for grants, & trying to wait patiently.

Beautiful pic to add to your little one's "baby book." Praying for all the logistics of travel, red tape, etc. to be taken care of in a quickli-fied manner!! What a beautiful family you are.

Congrats to your family! What a big milestone! I am right behind you, also with AWAA Honduras Program! I will be getting everything apostilled on Tuesday and hope to send my dossier to AWAA that day as well!

Welcome to the journey! Happy to have you aboard! So thankful to hear during this bumpy time in Honduras that more families are continuing to join in this jourey. We have had our dossier there since August and pray that we soon hear that we have been accepted. I hope that you find this an amazing time that God uses to draw you closer to Him! Congratulations again!!!

Papers and documents were too much capacity that why you have took the large box of fedex Courier Company. In the top corner of the papers and box of the courier was a bestessays uk department file in the light blue print.
