Happy (!?!?) Nine Months of Waiting!

Happy nine months of waiting to us.

Happy nine months of waiting to us.
We're still hanging in there. Good post from my friend Karen on how things are going :) We do have a huge praise. Our homestudy officially expired Thursday and we thought we were going to have to pay $750.00 to get it renewed plus new paperwork, new doctor's appointments...you get the point. I was so bummed and overwhelmed thinking of doing it again! But then I got an amazing little e-mail from our social worker saying that the State of Indiana doesn't really concern itself with International adoptions as far as homestudy updates, so as long as we have our little girl by June when our USCIS paperwork expires, then we won't have to get a homestudy renewal!!!! Praise the Lord! Seriously. Thank you, Jesus!!!!
BTW: the Hope Lives book study will begin on my blog in two days. Not sure yet how it's going to work, but I'm excited to be going through such an amazing book together with some of you! It's not too late to buy the book (unless you don't believe in shopping on Sunday. Then, it actually is too late, but just go get the book on Monday. No one will even know :) )
Okay, must get my beauty sleep. The time changes during the night and when I wake up I'm going to be a year older...beauty sleep is becoming more and more of a priority :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Where did October go? It was good spending time with you today at the amazing retreat. I hope you have a great and relaxing day tomorrow.

Oh wow! I stumbled upon your blog and enjoyed reading how God blessed you by not having to renew your homestudy. We, too, adopted a little girl from Russia several years ago and we are in the process of adopting another.

I will be praying for you!!!

Hello!Happy Birthday!

I had posted on your blog many months ago after following a link for your Tshirts (are you still selling them by the way?)

We are using All God's Children International, they are in Oregon. We are very pleased with them. With the Ethiopian changes I am not sure how long we will wait for a referral, but I hope it is still around 8 months!

We do live in Indy, on the west side. We will have to get together!! 3 hours isn't bad...

If we had an office I would have my husband keep his deer in there. Maybe our next house! :)

Have a great day.
