Finalized Home Study Report!!!

Sorry I have been so behind at posting news. Today our social worker is coming to the house to give us our finalized, notarized home study!!! I can't believe that this part is all done. I should be sending out our completed dossier by the end of the week. Tomorrow I am sending the application for US CIS. The bad thing about getting all the this paperwork done is that then everything is out of your hands. There is nothing else to do except wait. If you know me, you know that I am not a patient person. I try so hard but it just is not in my genes. Ha Ha!!! I keep reminding myself of Habakkuk 2:3: "But these things I plan won't happen right away, slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient, for it will surely take place. It will not be late by one single day." God knows the exact day that we will meet our child and I find comfort and peace in that.

I am looking for ways to raise money for the adoption. Does anyone have any good ideas of what to do? I do know that we are having a couple yard sales in the summer and I am trying to make decorative pillows to sale. Other than that I am fresh out of ideas.

I know exactly what you are talking about-everything is in and done and now it will just be months of waiting. I mailed our dossier 2 1/2 weeks ago and feel a little lost with nothing to do to move the process forward. My head gets trusting God and that his timing is perfect, but my heart wants to hold my little girl right now!!!

Hi Emily,
I can't wait to hear that you have your dossier in and are a number on the wait list! We did a baby bottle fundraiser. We bought a bunch of $1 bottles at Walmart, put some cute tags on them and gave them to family, friends, and our church to save change in. So far we have over $2500 raised from baby bottles and there are still more out there! It was super easy and inexpensive for us. It just takes time rolling all that change! I think my very first or second blog post was about it if you want to take a look.

I am glad you have everything done, so you can get it in! I didn't rush getting mine in because I knew it wouldn't matter since we didn't have our FDL. Now I wish I had mailed it right in!

I will definitely keep your dossier in my prayers. May it get their quickly, safely and correctly!!!
