Tonight is the night we have been waiting for since we sent the dossier to Ukraine. It is truly one of the biggest hurdles in the adoption process. Will the SDA accept or reject our dossier? That is the question. We have been so overwhelmed with by the prayers and encouragement of our family, friends, and the Body of Christ as a whole. It is such a blessing to be surrounded by believers as we travel this road. God is so good to us!!! Even tonight at church I was so encouraged by our discipleship group. I truly am thankful to God for that group of believers. I have an excitement that is unbelievable. We are coming one step closer to bringing our daughter home. We feel like if our dossier is accepted we may get an appointment date at the end of November or the beginning of December. That is only a guess from what we have seen from other adoptive parent's blogs. How awesome that would be!!! Please continue to pray. We are so excited!!! Thanks for letting us share this with you. Your prayers are such a source of encouragement and hope to us!! Keep praying.
By the way, for those of you who prayed for Matthew as he spoke at French Camp yesterday, thank you. He did a great job. It was great to see him speak and see the computer presentation that he had worked so hard on. Several of the students were interested in the December mission trip, and many of the staff hung around to talk and ask questions. It was very encouraging. This was his first official presentation. Thanks to Stephen and Erin (Anderson's parents) for letting us hang out with them. While we were there we got to try a Karina cookie. I must say it was REALLY good. So good that I had another, and another....well I won't tell you exactly how many I had. Again God blessed us with such encouraging fellowship. We look forward to going back to French Camp on Saturday for the bake sale. It is amazing to see the Lord use this adoption for His glory.
