This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

The stack of papers we call our dossier is about  of an inch thick, 81 pages long, took 6 months, 19 days to complete, feels like it carries the weight of our hopes and dreams for our family and our future, but in actuality it weighs 13 ¾ ounces.  We sent it to our agency along with three duplicates (that's 2.67 inches thick, 324 pages and 3.44 pounds of of paper!) on December 19.  It is being translated this week in Oregon, it's final stop before Brazil.  Luciana (of LIMIAR) has spoken with the translator who is aiming to complete it by Friday.

Will we follow behind it soon?  Will we finally embrace our children this year?  Oh, we pray we will!
