Our dossier is on the way to Rwanda!
Today we received an email from our family coordinator that our dossier is on its way to Rwanda. She also attached a copy of a certified letter from the Rwanda embassy in Washington, D.C., to the Minister of Gender and Family Promotion in Kigali, Rwanda, which states that "the documents required in child adoption process in Rwanda have been verified and authenticated by the Embassy of the Republic of Rwanda in Washington, DC." It is exciting to know that our dossier was mailed to Rwanda today, although we anticipate several additional months of waiting ahead. Our family coordinator's email says "The expected timeline for your family to receive an approval from the ministry is 3-6 months." After that, we'll still have to receive a referral, court date, etc., so it's very likely we still have a long way to go. We appreciate the support and prayers of our family and friends. Thank you!
