We've had a busy week or two. We shipped our Birth Certificates & Marriage License to be authenticated by the respective Secretary of States last Thur. Waiting for those to return.

Yesterday our social worker sent us the first draft of our home study!!! Woohoo! We got to check it for errors, but we're still waiting on one more state background clearance to come back. When it comes in, the Home Study can be sent onto the agencies. Then we can file our I-800A with the USCIS (US Immigration) & send off the remaining dossier documents for authentication.

So as you can see, beginning to be able to speak the "lingo" and use the acronyms... lol  So must mean we are getting closer to bringing Eli home.  :)  But also means we still need A LOT of prayer and finances too. Thanks again to all our supporters in both prayer and finances. To God be the glory!

Blessings from grateful hearts,
Sherry & family
