Hurry Up...and wait!!

Sorry it has been so long since we've posted anything on the blog.  Many people have said to me, "you need to update us..." The problem has been that until Friday there wasn't any news with the process.

Recently we sent our second Dossier to Russia without the 171-H form that we need from the US government. This was in hopes that it could be translated and be waiting for the form.  I received word on Friday that we are going to have to redo some of our documents for the Dossier.  One thing we need is a marriage certificate - but the state of Indiana only gives marriage licenses. Interesting for us.  We also found out that our medicals expire at the beginning of July (the ones in Russia). are our big prayer requests right now::

1. That the USCIS would issue our 171-H and we would get is SOON!!
2. That we can finalize the other Dossier documents and can send those off to Russia also.
3. That this process can be "completed" by the time our medicals expire so that we: a. don't have to pay to have them redone & b. can bring our girl home soon.

We miss her.  We want her to be home. We are ready - thanks to a ton of incredible people who gave us a "Sveta Shower" last Sunday.  She's got toys, clothes, and everything else a 3-year-old could want waiting for her.  Her room is ready.  Her mama and papa are ready.  Please pray that we can bring her home soon, and that we are all prepared for the transition of being together as a family.

I'll try to write more when I have more of my brain about's been a LONG weekend.

In Him,

P.S. - The next time I blog, I'll update the picture - I don't have the info with me right now, nor do I have the pictures.  So, look for that soon.
