We made a trip to the State Capital last night, and went first thing this morning to the Secretary of States office to get documents apostilled. After leaving from the Secretary of States office, where we found out there was no fed ex in Frankfort, so we drove to Louisville and found the fed ex where we shipped off our Dossier to the girls’ country and it will be there on Wednesday! So very very very excited!
So here are some pictures from today’s trip
And last but not least…..
The Beautiful Fed Ex package!

We got it, we got it, we got it!!! I could not be more happier (I don't even know if that is proper English at this point) then I am right now. God has truly blessed us, and God once again showed up when to us it would be humanly possible! We had a deadline and we are going to meet it! We were able to speak with Bill Johnson who was running for Senate in 2010 and who will be running in 2011 for Secretary of State. He was able to put us in touch with several people but one in particular Mitch McConnell. Andrew spoke with him yesterday and he said that he would do what he could. So today we find out that our I-600A had been approved and that we would be getting our I-171H by fax and by mail! :) I can not be more thankful to God and for other's willing to step up and help us bring our girls' home!!!
Thank you everyone for your love, prayers, and support!!!

We are believing that we will be going in the next month so we are still needing lots of funds, so please be in prayer for us, and if you can give and are feeling called to give you have 2 options. You can click on the "Bring Ellee and Johannah home" and that donation is tax deductible, or you can click on the orange donate button. Thanks a bunch!!!

I know you have to wait 9 months before your baby or babies normally arrive, but I have waited 8 years and 8 years is long enough! I can't imagine my life without Ellee and Johannah and I think about all the joy that they are going to bring to our lives and the love that they are going to give, and the love that I know we have to give!
I am really hoping we hear something in the next day or so...Ok here is my prayer/hope Thursday is my birthday what a better birthday present than being invited to come and take fingerprints ;)
