This week we finished up our paperwork for our home study and turned it into our social worker. Now we wait for one more training session, and for her to finish the home study on her end. That will make one mountain of paper work over, and then on to the China dossier. Once the home study is finished, I can also start applying for adoption grants.
Last month a new set of referrals came in, and we were hoping to get a match. No call came, but it was probably for the best since we were on the road visiting family. We are anxiously awaiting a phone call from the home office.
Thank you to all our friends for encouragement and prayers through this process. We know you will celebrate with us on "Gotcha Day". Please also remember another family in our church adopting - the Pletchers. They are adopting 3 siblings from the Ukraine, and are in the country now trying finish the process.
