"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."

Because I'm super awesome at titles for my posts.

Apparently the first piece of paperwork that we sent to Alina's country asking for permission to send a dossier for her was invalid because at the time, she was not cleared for international adoption. Now that she is cleared (according to the emails flying about), a new form had to be submitted and approval received before our dossier can be submitted. Please pray its accepted, approved, and our dossier can be submitted for her next week. Its been there two months. Pray that the mountains are moved and we can get to our girl soon.
