>We have lift off

Our dossier is on the way!

It is flying to DC for final federal authentications and then on to Addis Ababa for translation and then down to work. I know, this is all still about waiting. But as I said before, the way for me to get through the long haul of any adoption process is to celebrate, mark, and be happy for each little step ahead. This is one step closer to our daughter. We’ll take every step we can get in this marathon! (Why yes, I am task oriented, why do you ask??)

So, I have “Up, Up, and Away” (yeah, the 5th Dimension, yeah, I dated myself again..sigh) as my soundtrack of the afternoon…. It’s one more thing to be thankful for in this holiday week.
