...a fountain to
pose sit by and throw coins into...
...a really COOL gingerbread village...
...and, of course, some ice cream!
On the way back to the SoS office (they were done with our documents within 45 minutes), we went a little random prehistoric. *Note the Christmas spirit on this t-rex!*
...stuck it in the envelope and went to the CJ Post Office to overnight it to CHI!! :)
And so the paper chase comes to a close. CHI will check to make sure all the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed and if it all looks perfect, they will send it to DC to be authenticated.
It is SO CRAZY to think that we are at this point. It is becoming so real that our babies will be home before we know it!! Please join us in prayer for three specific things: that things go smoothly with the authentication, for patience for us as we wait, and that God would provide the nearly $12,000 we will need to accept our referral when it's time. It's ALL in His timing, and it's all in His hands!
