today is the day that we have officially sent off all of our paperwork for our adoption! it means that we are moving one step closer to bringing August home. we can’t tell you how excited we are about this. i finished up this afternoon around 1pm with collecting all of our stuff. I went to Kinkos and made copies, and then proceeded to the Post Office. They should receive the envelope by tomorrow. We still have a couple of more things to do before we are in the waiting process. We have our home visit, psychological testing, and our profile. then we will be put on the list! it seems like we still have alot, but after getting that small book of paperwork finished this stuff looks easy.
thanks again for all of your prayers & support. please continue to pray for us as we have these last steps to complete. pray for everything to work out with Maris’ job so that she can have the time off required to get our counseling done. pray for provision. we are almost half way there with our funds, and we still have a ways to go. i know the money will be there…but i’d be lying to you if said i didn’t worry about it at all. pray for the mother of this child & all of the things she is going through. pray for a safe pregnancy. pray for us as we try to keep focused & moving forward with what we have left to do.
you guys are the best! thanks for being a part of this journey.
