Yesterday morning (02/22/2010) we got a call from our family coordinator. She called to introduce herself and offer her help through the whole process. She sent me all the paperwork that will need to be done to prepare our dossier (a 4-6 months process). It's a little overwhelming but we need to take it one step at a time. So right now we start our official paper chase, and home study soon. It's surreal!
Lord teach me to rely fully on You in these next few months. Grow my trust and obedience in You. Help me cope with stress!

Seigneur apprends-moi a dependre completement de Toi dans ces prochains mois. Fais grandir ma confiance et mon obeissance envers Toi. Aide-moi a vivre avec le stress.
Our little boy Caleb doesn't need to be told twice when Daddy tells him to go "put on your boots"! He doesn't know where he's going, doesn't know how long it'll take or how much it will cost; All he knows is Daddy asked him to go spend quality time with him and that's all it takes for him to obey. We have heard the same request from our heavenly Father concerning adoption. We are embarking on this adoption adventure with Him not knowing the where and how; All we know is God wants to spend quality time with us and teach us who He is on a deeper level.
