We had hoped that our dossier would be submitted this week. Unfortunately, the SDA (State Department on Adoptions) did not have accurate health information on "Matthew." Because their information did not match our "Letter of Intent," they would not accept our dossier. It's more complicated than that, but this is the short version.
So now what? Olga will be working to get updated medical information to the SDA this week so that she can submit our dossier this coming Thursday.
Please pray that all goes perfectly. The impending shutdown is looming in the back of our minds, although I remind myself that once again... this situation is NOT a surprise to God. He's in control and He knows the outcome. And He wants Matthew to have a forever family, too!
