After several bumps on our road to getting our documents certified we received them in the mail last Friday from a wonderful lady at our Secretary of State's office. I now realize that this added delay was just part of a perfect plan that God has designed for us and our baby girl in Ethiopia. I overnighted our dossier to AWAA yesterday and I just checked the status of the package and it says that it is on the Fed Ex truck to be delivered. We pray that all of our paperwork will look good and if so it will get authenticated and then will be shipped out of the United States on Friday on its way to Ethiopia. We ask that you pray for this piece of our journey to be completed. Once our dossier is submitted to Ethiopia the estimated wait time for a referral is 7-9 months.
