I heard last night that the Ukraine government has moved the date to receive dossiers from mid October to the end of November.  Just in case you don't know, a dossier is a fancy word for paperwork that proves we are who we say we are...but translated into Ukraine.  Now, I don't know what this means as far as when we will get to see her and or bring her home.  I do know that it means we may be able to get our paperwork sent to Ukraine this year.  If not it will be the end of February.

As of right now, we have 5 more pieces of paper (not including the USCIS) until I am done gathering paperwork.  I am a little excited.  I am doing a "happy dance".  You know, the little dance you do when you are excited or happy?  I won't show you mine, so stop asking.  But, I did find someone else's happy dance to give you some idea.

Now, imagine this being done by a round, rhythm challenged, over 30 year old white woman.  It's like looking in a mirror!  Ok, so I considered saving this video for another time I am doing a happy dance.  You'll just have to scroll back to find this one when I talk about happy dancing.

I know God pushed the dead line back.  I'm so grateful.  And I'm so thankful He has helped us get the paperwork done so quickly.  I'm looking forward to see what He does next. 


  1. What a blessing!

    Oh, and thanks for making me smile today. I could just picture you joining alongside Carlton. ;-)

  2. I was there when you got the email and it was a bit scary - that's some happy dance!!

  3. We found out a few weeks back about your exciting news. We are praying for you all!

  4. Haha! I love it! Looks a bit like my happy dance too. Next time I happy dance and blog about it I might have to steal this from you :)
