Dear friends,

KC and I have felt your love today. And we cannot thank you enough. 

Today was rough. But your outpouring of love and encouragement helped us more than you know. 

Some of you sent texts with nothing but emoticons, my bestie sent me this, 

And another sweet friend stopped by my house with coffee and chocolate (thank you Adriel). 

And oh so many of you commented on my post today letting us know you felt our pain too. 

Thank you sweet friends. 

We couldn't do this without you and your support. 

Yes, today was rough. But tomorrow is a new day. 

Our little family is going to be on the DL the next few days. But I wanted to be sure to let you all know how much we love and appreciate you. 

This week and next week we'll be kicking it into high gear to work on re-doing our Dossier. 

Luckily, I saved a lot of the files because I thought we'd have to re-do it earlier this year. It's just going through the motions of getting everything. 

I think the hardest things to get will be our physicals and background checks. 

We have to reorder our birth certificates and marriage certificates, and get bank statements and tax copies, etc....

It's not hard, it's just tedious. 

So now, we pray that we can get this knocked out quickly, state sealed, authenticated, sent to Ethiopia and that MOWA reviews our dossier and issues a positive letter so we can get a court date soon after they open back up at the end of September (actually a week earlier than we thought!). 

Thank you friends. You gave us the kick we needed to brush ourselves off, and start again. 

As I stated before, we're still fighting hard for her and we'll jump through whatever hoops they want us to.

  1. When family needs you, you fight! There are no other options. Bertie is family and some day will know how hard you fought to bring her home. God is with you on this Journey.
