Our Homestudy has been Approved!

I just got back from Thanksgiving with our family in North Carolina. I was going through my back log of emails and there it was, an email from my adoption agency. Our homestudy was approved on Tuesday! Praise God! What a great gift and something more to be thankful for! We should be getting our papers in the mail this week and I will be sending out my I800A application as soon as I get them. On to the next big step in our adoption process. I will fill you in soon...

The Verse that started it all...

I felt led to post the verse that God led me to back in January of this year. I was praying for direction on whether or not the decision to adopt was right for our family. This is what He showed me. "I will stand upon my post of observation and station myself on the tower, and watch to see what He will say within me and what answer I will make. And the Lord answered me and said, "Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may read it as he hastens by. For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end, it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day." --Habakkuk 2:1-3 Thank You, Lord that You know the appointed day!

Almost Here

Well, I have spoken with our adoption agency and it looks like we should be getting our notarized home study sometime the first week of December. So I am going to spend some time today getting everything together that I will need to send off with our I800A application. That way when the homestudy gets here I can just Fed Ex it that day. It is taking them 120 days to process the I800A application. We will pray for a shorter time. Thanks so much for lifting our family in prayer!

Nothing New

Well, it has been awhile since we have heard anything. Our homestudy is still being reviewed by our agency. As soon as we get the ok from them we can apply for our I800A. Hopefully we will hear something this week.
