|Blowing out the candles for their sister!|
|We made a traditional cake from her country|
in honor of our girl.
Yesterday was our sweet girl's birthday. I had so hoped to have her home before then, not wanting her to spend one more birthday without a family.......but such is the nature of adoption. It takes time, and a lot of work! Our last report, with the words "Mama Soon" keeps me busily notorizing papers, writing essays, and praying like crazy. I can't imagine what she must be feeling, knowing her Mama and Daddy are coming yet every day no one turns up. We are SOO close! I only have 2 documents left to finish up our dossier! Unfortunatly we are still a bit short on funds. Will you pray with us, that God would provide the last little push? We are SOOO close to being fully funded that it's terribly exciting and scary at the same time. Thank you again for following our journey. We are so very blessed by every word of encouragement, ever prayer, and every bit of financial support.
Sincerely, Dale and Carrie
PS- We have picked her middle name. :-) When we are able to tell you her first name, we'll announce it.
