"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Shutdowns and submission

We are waiting for news our dossier was translated and submitted, when we learned that the government takes a 2wk shutdown, not accepting any dossier's, every 3 mos. Well this is the month, starting July 1st-15th they will not be accepting any new dossier's (but will still be processing families who are submitted). Some seem to think our dossier was submitted last week, but don't know for sure. Its been there for 2wks now, so I pray its been translated and submitted for us. Otherwise that puts a few more weeks on our wait for an appointment date. They only take dossier's on Thursday's, so last week would have been the last week to get it in.

Prayers and good happy thoughts for the submission last week are appreciated!
