Guess What's in My Email Inbox?


OUR HOME STUDY ROUGH DRAFT!!!!!!!!!  Praise God!! 

And she also emailed it to our agency for them to proofread! YAY!! Hopefully, we will be getting everything finalized with it next week! And praying that maybe, just maybe we will be on the waitlist next Friday!!! I am holding out HOPE!

And how cool is this...I received our home study rough draft today on September 9th. Our very first meeting with our social worker was on June 9th! That is exactly 3 months to the day!!  I also just remembered that September 9th is our "engagement anniversary! Jody and I got engaged on 9/9/99!  I just LOVE how God works in even the very small details! And then, all these small details that He puts together end up being this amazingly beautiful journey! And we're really just beginning...so excited to see how this next chapter unfolds!

"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with JOY!" Psalm 126:3

We got our first draft Tuesday! And it was sooo full of mistakes. Things like, my 3 year old's son's birth year was listed as 1977!! Anyway, all was corrected and AGCI is reviewing it now.

Yay!! So happy for ya'll! Can't wait until you get a "number"! :)

HIP-HIP-HOOOORRRAAAAYYYYY!!!!! Celebrating with you! How very exciting! There is just something about "waiting with a purpose" (when you have a number) vs waiting for others to do something so that you can do your next step! It is FAR more satisfying! SO happy you will be on the list soon!
