Orientation Conference call

On Thursday we had an orientation call with All God's Children. We went through our service plan, which tells us what entity will provide what service to us at each point in the process. We also went through the payment plan; when fees are due and where they are going. It was exciting to see the whole process written out before us. Our first goal: we have until August 8 to send back the signed service plan with the program fee.
The best part of the orientation pack was the calendar they gave us with pictures of adopted children on it. Every time we see those sweet faces we are reminded of why we are doing this.
We will do all we can to make this happen, the rest is in God's hands. Please pray with us!

Application accepted!

We just received the call from AGCI saying they went through our application and medical documents and everything is good to move forward-yeah!!!
Next step is to have the "orientation call" this thursday or monday. We are looking forward to the orientation packet coming in the mail-Thursday!
I also got an adoption book I ordered in the mail today, "Twenty things adopted Kids wish their Adoptive parents knew." We have heard it is very informative. We are trying to go into this without expectations and with eyes wide-open-the more info the better.

We are already seeing God working. We are starting to receive support from family and friends in many different ways, money, words of encouragement and most importantly, prayers. Thank you! God is awesome and He uses His people to accomplish His work.

2nd homestudy visit

Our next homestudy visit is scheduled for the 16th. Please pray that the social worker will get an accurate view of our family when she visits. Help our hearts and desire to please God in our daily lives shine through the "craziness" that occurs when someone new comes into the house.(dog, boys excited and showing off)
We have our application packet ready to mail with all our medical records,doctor's approval letters, and our personal statements regarding losing Hudson. Of course getting a family picture taken was an issue. But in the mail it goes.
Yeah! We are one step closer!
