We finally received our completed home study which moves us to the next phase of this process...... the dossier. It's amazing that we've been at this for nearly four months now and our progress is summed up in a 13 page home study document. Many of you are probably aware of some pending changes in adoption policies in Eastern Europe that could have an impact on our adoption of Elisa and Vanessa. We are more motivated than ever to push things forward as quickly as possible so that we don't miss our window to adopt our girls. Despite the potential delays, we still have a tremendous peace about everything. It's cliche, but God's timing truly is perfect and we know that He is in control. So with everything finally moving forward with the adoption, where do we stand with the rest of the chaos?
Tony has still not heard about the Atlanta job, so we are proceeding with our lives as if we're staying in San Antonio, but are also fully prepared to move if necessary. We close on our house this Friday and are staying at a friends guest house for a short period. We spent all weekend cramming our belongings into large storage containers sitting in our driveway. Your truly realize how much "stuff" you have when it's time to move and we definitely have a lot of stuff. All in all, things are going well. We finally see an end to the craziness that we've been experiencing over the past few months. It's crazy season like this that make us truly value the quiet and "ordinary" seasons of our lives. Oh how we long for ordinary right now! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and for your wonderful support!
