Just sitting at my computer at the quiet part of the day, thinking about what will become of this process we are in now. We have just couriered our second copies of the new requirements (2 days after we couriered off our dossier again)...and are praying that all things will work out.

I am so grateful for what I am learning through this:

-letting go of what I think is in my control
-nothing is predictable
-cherishing my family
-praying for these new members to be

Will be keeping you posted as soon as we hear from our facilitator!

In record breaking time, we have had our new forms notarized etc. It is on the way to our agency and then off to get authenticated again.

I know that God will glorify himself in this, whichever way he answers.

Just thought I'd post a picture of our family. My husband Richard, our son Kai (3) and Tomi (just shy of 2). Cheers

another setback

We ended off 2008 but still hopeful for the next year. On Jan 1 , we heard that due to the new forms and us just having finished our 2nd time around dossier, only to totally restart our third... there is only a very slim, slim chance that we will be able to submit our dossier in order for it to be accepted for 2009. Needless to say, I have cried, been frustrated and have tried to understand this whole process. Please pray with us for a "miracle". Our dossier will be going to the notary and off to Ottawa again in the next couple of days and then our part is done.
Our hope is built on NOTHING LESS than Jesus blood and righteousness...what a comfort!
