Today they sent us our court application, and we will be sending that to Estonia in a couple of days! It looks like we will be in Estonia adopting Amanda in 3-4 months if all goes well. I look at Amanda's picture daily and tell her she will be a Levario this year!
We are not unrealistic; adding once more little girl to our household is going to take some adjustment for all of us, Kara included. We are looking at our minivan and wondering how well we will all fit in there! It seats 7, but 3 car seats take up a lot of room. Having two 3 year olds will be like having twins as well, though the girls do not look alike at all!

I do have to share that today is the first day in a long time that I feel a weight has lifted off my shoulders, raising our adoption fees is no easy task after adopting from Ukraine just 2 months ago. Besides our tax refund (and possibly refinancing our house AGAIN) funds are hard to come by. I really get discouraged when I see that political figures raise millions of dollars in a week and I can’t seem to raise a few hundred, and I thought (to be truthful) that if raising money was as hard as it has been for us, perhaps God was trying to tell us something. I have been praying along with my close friends and family for God's will to be shown to us in our Estonian adoption. The phone call we received today comes to all of us as a message that Amanda truly is the child God wants in our family. Please continue to pray for Amanda and our successful adoption.
