Join us in prayer! We are close to our first travel date!!

 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says:
16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Thank you so much for your prayers! We covet them soooo much

Our complete dossier has been submitted to our placing agency in the United States. It will be packaged up and sent to Bulgaria this week.

It will be received in Bulgaria by Tony, our contact in Bulgaria. She will translate the entire dossier.

Once translated it will be authenticated. Then it will be submitted to the MOJ (ministry of justice). There, the International Adoption Committee will meet and review the dossier (along with many others of course besides ours!), and they will approve it. (hopefully!). Once approved it will be given to the minister (the woman in charge of the MOJ) for her signature.


Once signed, Tony in Bulgaria will be giving us our first trip date! We aren't sure when the next meeting of the International Adoption Committee (IAC) is, but our contact will let us know. We are praying that our dossier will be in the MOJ when they have their first meeting of the season coming up soon!

Thank you for joining us in prayer!

Here are a few shots taken and submitted with our dossier:
