As you know if you’ve been reading for a while, an unnewsy blog does not usually mean an unnewsy life for us; often quite the contrary! It seems the longer I put off posting to accommodate the busyness, the more things I have to blog about, and therefore the more I put it off.
We sent our dossier to our agency about three weeks ago, and then unofficially began summer with a three-day visit from dear friends.
During that visit, a certain little lady found her feet and took her first few consecutive steps!
Since then she has blossomed into a full-time little walker complete with a handful of new words and tricks to go with her new mobility.
After our friends left, we promptly embarked on a lovely three-day camping trip with different friends. We hiked seven miles of trails and saw 21 waterfalls. The weather was perfect and the cooking was superb (and more importantly not mine!)
Unfortunately, we came home to news that there was a problem with one of our dossier documents that would cost us another trip to Harrisburg. Although the trip to Harrisburg was unfruitful, it seems like our agency have a work-around that should keep things moving.
Our dossier is currently in Washington DC for final authentication before it gets sent overseas. Please pray with us that this (and the steps following this one) will happen quickly.
After our camping trip we had one final whirlwind week of school before Uncle Nathan arrived from Scotland for a ten-day visit, which are just the sadder side of halfway through. But I will leave the details of that for my next update or else this one shall never get finished.
