Praise God!  We got my passport today!  I was told 4 weeks minimum.  Again, God is good!  So we did some scrambling today and got all the other pieces of paperwork together and when Chad's employer letter arrives tomorrow (being over-nighted) the dossier should be complete.  So hopefully either tomorrow or Monday we will go in and have it reviewed, and if everything is good then it's off to GR to get each document "State Sealed"....then to Kinkos to make 4 copies of everything then to Bethany Corporate (thankful they are all near each other in GR).  The packet will get reviewed for a couple days and then it's off to Washington DC to the Embassy to be Authenicated.  From there our paperwork goes to Ethiopia!  So, We are hopefully that our dossier will be in Ethiopia in mid to late May....and I was hoping for August...yeah God!  Once the paperwork is in Ethiopia we won't hear for a long time....until we get our referrals.  We are told it is 6-24 months of waiting.  But we know God's timing is perfect and if He wants to place our children quicker, He will, we've seen that already!  We'll be sure to update when we know the paperwork is on it's way to Ethiopia.  Until then, God Bless!!
