After a coffee date with a friend at work I thought it wise to make an appointment with a financial advisor. I was just so overwhelmed and didn't know what to do. After talking with the financial advisor and looking at what we could be saving, given a few changes, I was blown away. Aaron and I have been faithful from the beginning of this process that God would provide the funds to get through this adoption. It's funny to think that part of His answer to that prayer would be in our own checking account!
When we haven't been worrying about this we've been working on getting a couple documents we were missing, like Aaron's birth certificate and my passport with my married name on it. We also started some Hague certified training. We have to have at least 10 hours completed before we can submit our dossier.
