What sweet relief! Word came around noon today that our dossier has indeed been submitted in country. It was only then that I realized how nervous and anxious I have been while waiting for the news. I kept telling myself that God’s timing is best, even if it turns out to be different than what we think is best. This was the last day for submissions until mid-January. Appointments in country have been running 8-12 weeks after submission. Because we made the deadline, it looks as though we could be traveling sometime during the first three months of 2014. We are happy about that because it is the slower time at the farmer’s market where Jim works and he can more easily be away. We don’t want to cause any more inconvenience to Jim’s boss than is necessary.
Thank you to all who have prayed for us thus far. Please continue to remember us. Right now my mind is feeling a little sluggish and the words are not flowing very well. Perhaps in the next post I will share a little about the preparations we have made thus far to make room for four more girls.
