Psalm 68:5-6

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

I am Stepanie Nance. My family adopted two little boys with Down Syndrome from Ukraine in 2010. I hope to educate and to inspire you. I hope to make you laugh and to make you cry.

Come along for the ride. It's a wild one!

Dossier shipping in the morning!

The dossier is ready to go. I'm so nervous! I'm just certain that I overlooked something or forgot to sign something. It gets shipped in the morning!!! Yikes!

Each little step we take makes the whole thing seem more real. First was the promise money that we sent...huge scary step! Next was the home study...opening up our lives to scrutiny was pretty huge and scary. Then the immigration process...government, 'nuf said.

Now we are sending a stack of documents overseas. Documents that we stressed and obsessed over. Documents that were redone three and even four times. Documents that I stalked county appraisers, doctors and social workers to get completed correctly. Documents that I stuffed in the safe every time we had a tornado or thunderstorm warning.

I'm about to trust UPS to get this stack of precious paper safely overseas in two days. I'm telling you it's hard to let go!
