We got word several days ago, on my husband's birthday, that our Ella is clear for international adoption!!!
And (country) is reopening for submissions the second week in Feb!! Of course that is pending all the crazy votes that are happening. But I have a good feeling, We are slotted to submit our paperwork Feb 10th, yippee!!
So, of course everyone's next question is when do you get her?
1. We submit our paperwork, God willing, Feb 10th
2. Wait for a travel date, it is usual to receive your travel date 2-3 weeks after you submit
3. The travel date is usually 2-3 later
So, best case scenario we would travel in March, have her home in April
To say we are excited is an understatement!


  1. Congratulations! So excited for you:)

  2. Congratulations!!! Praying all goes well with submission and you get a quick travel date! Woohoo!

  3. Dawn, we received our home study today and it's already in the mail to USCIS! Only 1 more step before we can send everything over. Praying!!
