Destined Dossier Delivered!

Yay! Our agency, About A Child, let us know last night that the dossier arrived in Bella's country on May 8th. I am so glad that it arrived and is in our facilitator's hands--he will be translating it now. So, now we wait to hear when it will be submitted to the country's adoption department. After that, we are given a travel date.

Would you pray that all will go smoothly and that our paperwork looks fine? We are getting closer, Bella!

Love you all.....Paula (soon to be mom of FOUR!)


  1. Paula,

    I am so happy for you and for Bella!!! What a wonderful Mother's Day present to know that you are getting so close to meeting your daughter. Prayers that the translation goes quickly, you get a quick submission date and you are travelling before you know it!!!


  2. Wonderful news! You are so close, I bet your arms are hurting with the need to hold her close!


  3. Praying for your family... those here and the one still abroad!
