One Step Closer

So the paperwork came back from the consulate a day early!!!!  I was able to ship our dossier (our life on paper) out to our agency which means, potentially we could be logged into China in 2 weeks! This means they can match us with our daughter.  So it was an exciting day, but a little nerve-racking.  Sending all of these documents that we have spent months working on, and praying they get there safetly.  That's when I feel so blessed to say that God is in control, and He loves her more than any human possibly could.  And His timing is perfect!  It's all in His hands, which takes away my worries...

To say that there is a lot of paperwork with an adoption, is an understatement. The amount of paper work can be overwhelming at times, but yesterday, we reached a huge milestone!  We went to Harrisburg to have all of our adoption documents state certified.  Then, I shipped them to the NYC Chinese Consulate, where they will be authenticated.  I know....blah, blah, blah, but this is VERY exciting for us.  All of these documents are what I have been gathering and working on, since September.  This is the last step before we can send everything to our agency.  This is the last step before we can be matched with our baby.  So yes, this is very exciting! 

The agency tells us, that they will match us in 1-3 months.  Which means we will know who she is, a little about her, and what she looks like.  I can't wait!  I can't wait to see her little face!  I can't wait to see who God has for us... 

Let the journey begin...

Never thought I would start a blog.  Never wanted to start a blog...but now I have a reason. 

This is our journey.  Our journey to bring our sweet baby girl home.  I have never met her, but will do anything to bring her home.  I have no idea what she looks like, but love her already.  I have no idea what the next year of our life will hold, but I am completely okay with that.  

We started this journey in September 2010, and God has been so faithful!  He amazes me everyday.  His will for us to bring Hayley home has been so clear.  

I am excited to share in this journey with all of you!
