Prasie God our home study is complete! Ashley said she would send us out the rough draft to proof and get ready for the I 600A form that needs to be submitted to our goverment. Once the I600A is back we are ready to submit to Russia. We will keep you posted.

First we would like to thank all of our parents! We got tons accomplished! We were able to completely finish the laundry room! We now have complete built ins around the washer and dryer which allows for more counter top space. I'm pretty sure we are gonna need more space for laundry pretty soon... LOL

Our new church is scheduled to open this Sunday. Prasie God.

We are still scheduled for our final home study on Friday from the social worker. Prayers please.

Onto the "dossier"

Dossier = is typically a briefing paper based on an individual of interest in intelligence circles. They generally contain a relevant biography, most current information on activities and any special information of interest to the agency, such as having training in various specialized fields.

In the adoption circles its all the paper work that has to be submitted to the country you want to adopt a child or children from. We started ours today!!! Praise the Lord!

First two home studies COMPLETE

Friday Amy & I went to CHI for our first home study. The first one was both of us together. While we were there we went ahead and did home study #2, which is interviews seperate. We are down to our last home study which is at our actual home. Praise God! We were told some very interesting news. It seems that Russia has changed there VISA process, making it a bit longer than previously expecteed once there. Which means we may have to make 3 trips instead of 2 to get our little girl. Oh well, nothing we can control. As I have told many people, "God is driving, Amy & I are along for the ride; we will get to our destination!"

Justin had his first baseball game this morning. His team the Red Sox won big, Yeah!

Tomorrow we head to the lake house to check on things.
