We completed step #1 of our home study today. We were asked lots of questions, given lots of answers, and handed a stack things to read (all very good information!). Our worker is fantastic. We could not be more pleased at this point.
Friday we will go to Louisville to be fingerprinted and do our immigration paperwork. Then, next Tuesday we will complete the home study. We will also be applying to our placement agency in the next couple of weeks.
It officially seems real. We are really going to have another little one running around the house! God is so gracious to allow us this blessing. I am humbled that He would find me worthy enough for such an honor. We continue to pray for the safety of our daughter, for her birth mother's health and safety, for her caretakers, for all of our finances to be there, and for a smooth adoption process. And we pray for patience too! This is a long process. We are asking God to allow her to be with us by the end of this year, but know that it may not work out that way. We are more than willing to wait for her!! Keep praying with us, and I will be sure to keep you posted.
