The Wheels are turning a bit faster:-)

After weeks of not much going on with our adoption, things are starting to move forward again. We got our biometric fingerprints done this morning in Sioux Falls and are hopeful that our I-600A application will now move through the system quickly.

Also, we got several documents apostilled in Pierre on Wednesday and sent them on to the agency to be translated into Russian. We are working on Natalya's room this weekend (which, by the way, has gone from purple to pink) and hope to have our photo dossier done and approved by the agency some time next week. Once that hurdle has been overcome, we'll be off for more apostilles in Pierre and the first packet of documents required for our dossier will be complete.

We are planning a rummage sale in Sioux Falls on August 28th to help raise money for Natalya's adoption. We are also busily filling out grant applications. Please pray with us that God will continue to work in the finances for this adoption. So far, we have paid about $10,000 in agency, homestudy, and dossier fees. We still need raise the $11,200 country fees as well as traveling expenses,escrow fees, visa fees, medical exam fees, etc. God is so faithful and we are trusting Him to help us as we move forward in faith.

We adopted 3 babies from the Ukriane in Janurary and are loving life at home, but I do remember going through what you are now. If you ever need anone to talk to about what it was like there please let me know. Thanks, Leah
