We just heard from our agency that our dossier is being sent to Vietnam today. We will not hear anything from Vietnam until we get a referral. The referrals seem to be slow right now and we know that there are 4 families ahead of us for a baby boy. We know this could take time and are trying to leave it in God's hands. Our biggest concern is that our daughter, Tifanie, graduates this year and we don't want there to be a conflict with any dates! Please pray for us.

Thanks so much!! You are ALL appreciated!

Back to school...

Today was the first day of school for the kids. This is Tifanie's Sr year so I was a little sad to see her go. Randy is now officially a freshman and Emilie is now in the 3rd grade. They grow up sooo fast. Emilie was so funny this morning. The school did not want the parents to walk in with the kids but I have always taken them on the first day. So as I was driving her, I reminded her that I could not walk her in. When we got there she saw a large group of people waiting for the doors to open. We both commented on how some people must not have read the note. Then Emilie said, "I guess some people just can't let go!" It was so funny. But as I drove away with tears in my eyes I thought...how true!

No baby news yet. We are hoping that the paperwork is in Vietnam within the next few weeks. We are leaving it in God's hands. Please coninue to pray for us and the adoption.

Thanks so much!

Next step...

We heard from our adoption agency today. They let us know that they sent our dossier(paperwork) on to authentication and translation today. This process could take 3 to 6 weeks. But from this process it goes straight to Vietnam. So...we are getting there. They gave us a tracking number and said they would let us know as soon as it is there.

School starts in 13 days. I went with Tifanie yesterday for enrollment and will go with Randy on Monday. Then Emilie has her back to school night on the 13th. We will be busy with Vacation Bible School this coming week. Randy and I are taking on the young ones. Donald is working and not sure about what Tifanie is doing!!

Please continue keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We appreciate all of them.

Until later...
