After accepting our official referral, there were 2 pieces of paperwork that we needed to have Authenticated. First, we sent them off to our Secretary of State to get the Great Seal on them (we sent them overnight on Tuesday, with another overnight envelope inside and received them back on Friday). We then sent them on to a Courier Service that will make sure they end up at the Department of State and the Congo Embassy in Washington DC before heading to The Congo. Today we are applying for our Passports and then all that will be left to do is wait - we all know how good I am at that!! :)
No major news, just wanted to keep you up-to-date on the journey! If you're looking for a specific way to pray right now - pray for the protection of our little one in The Congo - that God would hold her safely in His hand!
