Good News!

Tuesday, we learned some awesome news! Our dossier (big stack of adoption paperwork) was approved by the Bulgarian Minister of Justice! Our dossier was submitted July 31. We were told we should know in 31 days if it was accepted or not. We waited almost 3 times that long to hear! It was approved on October 21 and we found out November 5!

What's next? More waiting. We are waiting now to be matched with 2 children, of either gender, up to age 6, healthy or with minor/correctable special needs.

While we wait, we are fundraising! When we get a referral (match with kids), we will have about $6,000 due in agency fees + travel expenses for 2 trips to Bulgaria!

More Good News! As of right now, we are $5 from being half way to our $3,000 matching grant! I just had an update from LifeSong for Orphans, and our total is $1,495! Want to donate $5 or more to push us over the 1/2 way mark? You can donate online at or mail check payable to:

Just in case you missed it, here is the video from our workday at Mrs. Tucker's house. Enjoy!
