Doin' the Happy Dance!!

Well, it finally happened! We received the following e-mail today!

Hi, Heidi! Thank you. Your dossier is scheduled to
be submitted on August 13.

Best regards,Valentina

Heidi immediately opened her "super geek" dossier spreadsheet and
calculated our possible appointment date based on the track record of Valentina
and other facilitators. (If you want to know where you are, I'm sure you are on
that spreadsheet, somewhere. Just ask.) Her super-duper adoption algorithm told
her that our travel dates should be sometime in December. OK, her
algorithm cannot predict the idiosyncrasies that is Ukraine SDA. Stay tuned!
For now, I will keep doing my "happy dance". Uuh-Uuh, Uuh-uuh-uuh!!

Wahoo!!!!!! I am so thrilled to hear this! Praise God! We will be watching and waiting and praying. Gonna have to do the happy dance for you--I have Latin music playing on Garage Band in the background as "Elaine" plays with it on the computer. Definitely a great accompaniment to this happy news!

Congratulations on the good news! If this was last year, you would travel the last week of November or the first week of December. That way you would have a very good chance of going to court before Christmas. (our SDA appt. was Dec. 12, 2007) BUT, this year things are different. You may be going much sooner!

Based on our experience (with Valentina) I think your calculations are about right. Our dossier was submitted on Labor Day last year and our appt was on Jan. 23, 2008.

Can't wait to follow along as your trip takes place!
