Three Lovely Letters!

Yes!  We are Dossier To China!
It was 5 months ago that we committed to bring Kohlby home, and we finally have all the necessary paperwork completed on the US side.
What's next?
Glad you asked!
Our dossier will be logged in with the officials in China (CCCWA) within the next month or so, and we then wait for the LOA, which is basically China saying our family is officially approved to bring Kohlby home.
We then submit that approval, along with other paperwork, to US Immigration where they approve our family to adopt our specific child in his specific location and then forward that approval to the US Consulate in China so they can begin to process his paperwork.
That paperwork will then be sent to the CCCWA, who will then issue our travel approval.
Once we have travel approval, our agency will request a consulate date, and once that date is confirmed...we book airline tickets!

Clear as mud?  Thought so.
What's the time frame?  No idea.  But I can speculate early *please, Lord, let it be early* spring.
We need to get busy fundraising!  But more than anything else, we must be in prayer and constantly praising God!  Will you join us?!?

Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.  Psalm 106:1

It may be in the upper 90s, but fall really is around the corner!
For several years our family has partnered with a nursery to get beautiful mums and offer them to you!

We will have a trailer load by September 15th!

They typically have huge buds but have not bloomed when we get them, saving the beautiful blooming flowers for you!
 (yellow, white, deep red and bronze)

Yellow typically blooms first, and the bronze variety (including orange and rust), are last to bloom.

At this point we can get practically any color you want!  We will have yellow, white, deep red and bronze, and if you'd like another color, just let us know before September 15!
2014 Mums
In two-gallon containers
$15 each
You get a beautiful plant, and you help us bring Kohlby home!
