Submission!!

Yesterday was Wednesday,
and with our adoption agency,
Wednesday is Embassy day.
The day the Ethiopian staff takes paperwork to the US Embassy 
to be submitted for review.

Last week, 
we did not get submitted because of an ''error in translation''.
Though it took all of 5 minutes to fix the error,
we had to wait another week to try again.


This time...
I was sure we wouldn't get submitted.
I think I was putting on protective armor 
so I wouldn't be super upset when we received bad news...

but,
I really wanted good news!

And guess what -
we got GOOD NEWS!!!

Our paper work is now submitted!!

So now we are in the waiting process again -
Embassy will let us know by next Wednesday if 
we have been ''cleared'' and we can schedule or Embassy appointment
and our 2nd trip 
to bring our boys home!

So last night we celebrated
our boys
and can't wait to bring them home!
(I get chills whenever I say or type ''bring them home''!)

We also received these photos of our boys yesterday -
Sooo glad to see they still have the shirts we gave them 
our last day with them.

I love the boys wearing your picture near their hearts, waiting for you to return.

If love is in the details, you are a water fall of details.

I can't believe another hurdle is crosse and soon you'll be heading back to bring them home forever.

I'm so proud to know you.

Love V
