DTE today!! (“Dossier to Ethiopia”)

The long awaited important DTE date has come: 4-9-10!  Usually our agency, AWAA, sends the dossiers over to Ethiopia via FedEx, but in the email we received this morning they informed us that our paperwork will be hand delivered by some of their staff who are traveling there this weekend.  I love the idea that it will be handed over to the orphanage staff by loving, praying hands!

We are so blessed!!  I even got to do the DTE Dance with our friend and mom-in-the-adoptive-process, Deanne Mott, since she happened to be here when I got the email!  Woo Hoo!  Now to work on fundraising…… 🙂

  1. Congratulations!! How wonderful. May God bless you during your wait for referral and prepare each and every member of your family for the day of your union.

  2. What great news!!! I remember what a relief that was to NOT be chasing papers, not have something to get notarized or signed….and how strange to have nothing to do but wait!

    I’m praying for your family and your beautiful children!!

  3. Hi,

    I just noticed that you are from Lincoln, IL and are adopting through AWAA. We adopted from Ethiopia and we used to live in central IL, but moved to Florida in January.

    Anyways I know that a bunch of central IL Ethiopian adoptive families are getting together on May 15 at a park in Bloomington.

    I don’t have details, but I know the Semlow family has been to a couple and the used AWAA. They might know the details (semlowadoption.blogspot.com)
