What a Crazy Two Weeks!!

So, this past Tuesday was our meeting with our home study social worker. As I said it went great. I cleaned for the next two days! The house looks great, if I do say so myself. Then on Friday Paul's dad went in for triple by-pass surgery and ended up having 5 bypasses. Saturday we had our home visit for the home study. After 2 days of cleaning, she only looked at the house for about 10 minutes or less. Then we just sat at the table and talked. It went good. These visits get us excited!

Paul's dad is doing great! They moved him into a room today. Now its just going to take time for him to heal.

What's next? Well, my dad is having a kidney removed on Thursday. Back to the hospital. We are still working on our adoption education while working on our dossier packet. This Saturday we are going to Knoxville again to finish up our home study interviews. Home study will take 1-2 months to write up and during that we'll finish the dossier. Lots of stuff to do quickly only to have to wait a long time after they are done. *sigh*

We have to just keep plowing along. Thanks for any prayers you have sent our way!!

1st Home Study Interview...Done!

Yesterday we went to Knoxville to meet with our homestudy social worker. I was so nervous, excited, and scared. I have the habit of babbling when I'm nervous and I just knew I would say something stupid. I think it went pretty good though. She talked with me for about an hour. We talked about life growing up, school, adoption, and other stuff. She talked to Paul for about as long about the same things. She was REALLY nice and easy to talk to.

She tentatively scheduled the home visit for this Saturday. So what am I doing now? CLEANING!! lol

I can't believe how things are just falling into place so easily. It is amazing how God can work when you just get out of his way. We are so excited and can't wait to bring our daughter home.

Thanks so much for all your thoughts and prayers. Keep them coming because you can never get enough.
