adoption update

So I figured since I have been blogging for 3 months straight about Uganda, we could all use a break from "all things Africa". So today, I am going to update you guys on how our adoption is going.  Because of how things are going right now I can't share a lot of details.  It kind of sucks.  Please forgive me if things are kind of vague.  Hopefully in the next few weeks I can share more details.

Our home study was finally submitted for provincial approval this last week.  I can't believe we are still only that far in the process.  So much could still go wrong.  I think it feels like we are so much farther along because our home study is the only thing we are waiting on.  Things in Eastern Europe are ready to get going.  Their dossier is really, really easy.  I have never heard of one so simple.  So as soon as we have our home study it will be a very short wait till we have our paperwork sent to Eastern Europe. 

The hard part right now is that we got some news last week.  We have a deadline.  January 17, 2011. I can't share what happens then, but we need prayers that we at least have our home study approved and sent to EE by then.  If we don't...I don't even want to think about what could happen.  But know that it would be bad.  We are cutting it close.  That is roughly 7 weeks from today.  The average home study approval takes 4 to 6 weeks (sometimes 8) in our province.  And there is a 2 week holiday for Christmas in there.  Right now our prayer is that the lady who approves home studys in our province will approve our home study right away.  I know God has a plan.  He knows how everything will turn out.  So really I shouldn't have to worry, right?  sigh.  Please join us in praying that our home study will go through fast.  I have faith that everything will work out and we can get the child God has planned for us home {quickly would be ideal}.

Just as a side note.  My family is crazy.  Seriously.  I can't believe all the crazy, radical things that are happening in my families life.  Prayer works.  In case you were doubting it.  I see it everyday.  I am so excited for what the future holds.
