Update # 2

Things are moving along right on the adoption front here!

We turned in the majority of the paperwork for our Home Study last week and are having out Social Worker come out to the house for the In-home study TOMORROW! After that we have our family interviews and then play the waiting game with State clearances. Once those are all in, we will officially be what the adoption world calls "home study ready"! Home Study Ready means we are officially approved to start presenting our family's profile to birth mothers. It's a whole lot of hurry up and wait, but we are really thankful that our process is moving along so smoothly!

The other big news right now is that we have been accepted to partner with the amazing team over at Adopt A Love Story. They will be working with us to help us tell our story and create a fundraising website. Go check out other stories on their site (and pray for me as I try not to get all nervous about them sending a video crew to my house). We will be sure to give you a little behind the scenes action when that goes down.

Thanks to everyone who has reached out to ask how they can help. Right now, the biggest and best thing you can do is pray for our state paperwork to be processed quickly and for our fundraiser planning to all fall into place. We will have more concrete ways to help very soon...so be on the look out for that!

Well, back to filling out more paperwork, making endless copies, and mailing all the things.
