Back in the Saddle
Sorry that I have been a laggard blogger over the past couple of days. I'll take several whips with a wet noodle.
We have been very busy getting everything closed out with VBS and getting back into the routine of things.
It's been a while since we've updated you on adoption things, so I think it's time that we clue you in on some things.
We finally completed our homestudy about a month ago.
We received word on Friday that the homestudy has been reviewed and had to have a few very minor changes.
We had our contract with our agency signed and notarized today.
I am sending the first payment in tomorrow.
So, in about a year ... we should have our referral for our little Ava.
So, what has to happen in a year?
Lots of prayer! More than last time. This time, we don't have the savings, so we are going to be praying for God's providence and we know that He will provide. We are planning some fundraising and have been in contact with several granting agencies.
We will be letting you know more about that in the future. But for now, we ask that you pray for God to show us our path and help us to know what avenues to pursue and, well, you know, patience!
