It Is Out Of My Hands. . . Literally :o)

Today I sent all of our Dossier Documents (except the I179C) to our case worker @ Gladney. I can not begin to tell you how that makes me feel. Unless you've "been there, done that" you would probably not really understand the full emotion of it. These papers are not just any ordinary papers!! I was making copies of them, before I sent them, and my hand were shaking. It's crazy!! I am so excited to have this part of the journey so close to being complete!! We are now just waiting on one document--the I179C. This comes from the USCIS. It usually takes around 8 weeks. That would have us hopefully having it by the end of March. Once we have it, we will be ready to send all of our stuff to Colombia. Then, the "real wait" begins for our referral. They recently changed the wait time from 24-30months to 36 months. God's timing is perfect, and I will wait knowing that truth.

Thank you for praying with us in this journey to G.G.

Whooooo HOoooooo! Oh, that is such a huge relief. I felt like we needed a special celebratory dinner or something when I finally mailed it off. I had a gigantic check-off list because we had so many documents from different states and countries. I just looked at it a few weeks back. I already had forgotten all that paper work. Whew! Now the wait begins for you.... well, for the date for the wait to begin! So excited for you!

Congratulations on your dossier submission!! The wait for us was a roller coaster ride but VERY MUCH worth the wait... I just happened upon your blog. Researching agencies for our next adoption.
