Well, our dossier was NOT delivered friday. The UPS tracking now says it will be delivered on monday. I'm thinking it is because of the weekend, and when they say monday, maybe they mean their time? I am hoping anyway.

The night after I mailed our dossier I was up all night, and every time I woke, I thought of "Castaway", you know the movie with Tom Hanks and he is on an island because his FedEx plane went down. Anyway, that is probably silly. But, I kept thinking about how there could have been a dossier on that plane. And what if the same thing happened to ours. :) Funny, I know. But, all I could think of was "how in the world am I going to do this again", somebody would seriously have to come take care of my kids, just so I don't go insane.

Since starting this journey, I have had so many times where the Lord has reminded me that He is in complete control, and that no matter how hard I try to make it happen in my own time, it just won't , because He already has the day and time mapped out.  My heart keeps screaming, "but, Lord, can't you just give me an idea of the time. Maybe just the week?" Aghh, it is just so hard to wait. If I weren't waiting for a child, who is living and breathing and all by herself, it would be so much easier. All I can do, is pray.

Since our dossier won't make it there until monday, I don't think there will be enough time to translate and have it submitted this week. So, we are praying for the following week.


  1. The weather is bad here that is why it might have been delayed. When we got here yesterday it was snowing like crazy.

  2. Yeah, you are getting so close! We remember what it feels like to wait and wait and wonder when we would travel....sure develops patience!
    We are excited that soon you will be submitted and officially on the way to bringing Priscilla home. We will be praying for you.
    love, the Adamsons
