One step closer to our precious Willow. We only have one more thing to do before our dossier is complete. We are waiting for our biometric fingerprinting appointment in Dallas and then for our immigration forms to be complete. Once this is done we will be sending our dossier to Ethiopia and waiting for our referral.
These days I'm praying for patience. Even though we are close to having our part of things complete, waiting for the referral takes about a year so it seems like a very long time to this poor momma! I know that the Lord already has our little girl selected and we hope that we can be patient for our "gotcha date". :)
Have you ever heard of http://www.noondaycollection.com/? It's a really neat site where artisans all over the world make jewelry and other accessories. Jobs are made all across this world in impoverished countries. The founder began selling this jewelry to fund her adoption and wants to help others as well. Their stuff is so beautiful and goes toward such a great cause. I'm going to be having a show for all my friends and family that would like to purchase jewelry and 10% of all the proceeds will be given to us in cash to go toward our adoption. Go check out the website and let me know if you would be interested in being included in my party. I also have more tshirts, bracelets and NEW charms for necklaces for all who are interested.
Please continue to pray for us as we continue on this journey.
