Dennis's Dossier Submitted

We have TWO dossier's to submit and Dennis's was the first one.  Yup, it was submitted last week!  We have to go through this process because Dennis is in a different orphanage, different region.  It was double the work, double the time in country, double the money, and best of all  it will be double the pleasure!!! Well really quadruple the pleasure!
Thank you to everyone that sent prayers out for Dennis and his situation on being transferred and God willing he will be there waiting for us when we arrive!
Hopefully our 2nd dossier will be submitted either this week or the following week. Then we get to start the journey on meeting our three other sweeties. 
We still have a very long way to go in getting our kids home, but we are getting closer every day!

Asking for your prayers

As you all know we are adopting Dennis also.  He had a reprieve until May.  When in May we have no clue, could be May 1 or May 31.  We can not seem to get an answer to this question.  We asked the same question for Josh and Luke too as they could be transferred at any time.  The director of their orphanage said that they would keep them there for us.  We just can't seem to get any information on his transfer date or if they even know we are coming for him. 
Please, when you have some time, pray for us to get their in time.  Before they transfer him.  Pray that they know we are on are way.  Our dossier is in his country and it is really just a matter of weeks before we can get to him.  I have seriously thought of going their now to see what I could do, but I don't know what exactly I could do.  If anyone has any suggestions on any of this please let me know!  And above all else please send a prayer or two!

Thanks so much!

Sorry for the lack of blogging but it has been very busy around here!  We got our I171 last Thursday and we hope to have our dossiers, both of them, submitted on April 15th.  We have to have two dossiers as Dennis needs his own because he is in a different region than our other three kids.  So lets just say we have not had a lot of down time getting another whole dossier ready to go!  So worth it though!!!  We also have been changing the kids bedrooms around as we received a "surprise email" from South America!!!  God really does have a sense of humor!  I can hardly wait for the day to hold those four little ones and bring them home!  I'm sure it will be here before I know it! 
Hope everyone had a happy and blessed Easter!
