Hello! I know I haven’t been posting many adoption updates. There weren’t any for a couple of months and now we have lots to share!!
Our homestudy was supposed to be done a month and a half ago but we just now have it in our hands, and that feels so awesome! A bulk of our Dossier is already finished and mailed off. It should arrive in Juri’s country this weekend! It will all need to be translated and then it will wait there for the rest of our paperwork to be finished and sent. We are still waiting on a few things to be done before we can submit our entire Dossier to Juri’s country.
The only piece we are really waiting on is our USCIS approval. They could not move forward approving us until we had a completed homestudy. That arrived to them yesterday, so we will hopefully have approval in a couple of weeks! After that our Dossier will be ready and we can submit it to Juri’s government. After it is submitted it takes about 8-12 weeks for them to process everything and invite us to travel to their country to adopt. We are getting really close!
We have been so blessed by all of your prayers and encouragement. What blessings our family and friends have been on this journey! We are also now fully funded for Juri’s adoption thanks to an extremely generous donor to whom we will be forever grateful. We do ask that you continue to keep us in your prayers as we move forward and to pray for Juri that God is preparing his heart to meet us!
