Another step in our process was completed today. The Chinese Consulate in San Fransisco did whatever they do to our paperwork (authenticate maybe?) and it’s back on its way here overnight. Our agency expedited this part of the process for us, so instead of taking 3-4 weeks, it took about 1. It was to be done on Friday, but it turned out to be a Chinese holiday. We should be DTC (Dossier to China) tomorrow, and our dossier should arrive on Thursday.
We have need of prayer that our paperwork will be logged in in China by May 18th. That date will determine who our child is and we have our heart set on one little one. Please pray with us.
On Saturday with the help of our dear friends who hosted, and many friends who donated, we held a huge garage sale. All the money that came in is going to our adoption, and praise the Lord, he brought in over $2100. There are still some valuable items left which we are hoping to sell over the coming weeks, so that amount will go up even more. I am blown away and so thankful for all those who made it happen. Even the kids were involved by selling treats that friends baked.
