oye. As soon as you think you are done, some NEW twists, rules, changes or oopsies :( and you are scrambling once again t make a deadline that is truly important to YOU, but most folks don't get it :(
We thought we were done with our dossier. Well a day or 2 after we mailed it, an error was caught and the rush was on to quickly add Benji's name, re-notarize and mail off to have put with our dossier...to the tune of $111.00 :) for.one.paper.
Then 2 weeks later turns out a couple dates don't match on another paper :( well we missed being submitted Thursday, did I mention Our countries court system only accepts dossiers on Thursday's ..so another mad dash on the "TAX-FREE WEEKEND" (does everywhere have that? no taxes on clothing to celebrate school starting?) well the darn lease excerpt paper had to be redone..and the notary that our leasing agent used, REFUSED. YES REFUSED, TO STOP SHOPPING TO NOTARIZE OUR PAPER. (even though our agent offered to drive and meet her in the parking lot!)
(Then she left off an important piece of info when she DID sign them. Who does that?!)
Well after being on the edge of my seat all day we got it at 3:45 , rushed to UPS but they were closed :(:( (sniff )
So today I was at UPS when they opened and mailed this paper out again, with a kiss and a pray ;) this little document HAS to make it to EE, by Wednesday, so we can be submitted for a court date by THURSDAY :) then we should hear about a court date , about 3 weeks from then and should HAVE TO BE in EE for court about 8-30 days from there !!!!! We are getting SO CLOSE!!

Danil has Ds and is beautiful!
Masha has Sn's maybe FAS, but she is beautiful
and a family has met her recently and loved her.She is tiny, and in a VERY poor orphanage :( very poor.
MAX & LENA :) twins!! They have HIV + and are developing normally, & are loving & walking.
This is Toby :)
oh.my.word. He has to find a family NOW, or I may be going back for him !!
Would you look at those big blue eyes and long eyelashes? AND he is under a 1 year old! He has Down syndrome, and will thrive at home with a family ! :)
Pray for these children. Share them with your friends and family.
Be their voice. Don't turn away. They need us to care.
