We just got the news today – our background checks cleared! We always knew that we were not axe-murderers, but now it’s officially official and everyone else can believe us now when we say we’ve never been arrested!
That was a long wait for that bad boy to get behind us. We are so relieved to have that wait over. This means that we can now start our homestudy. From what we understand, we will be meeting with our social worker several times to get to know each other and figure out the logistics of our adoption. We are so excited to move on with this, because we feel like this is where some of the “meat” is. This is where we get to write down who we really are and our reasons for adopting – because Christ did it to us, plain and simple.
Our prayer requests have now changed. We ask that our fellow prayer warriors start praying for our homestudy process, that what we say and do will always reflect the love of the Father, and that the process itself will go smoothly. We also ask that you be praying as we consider which country to adopt from. As always, we ask for continued prayer for our future child(ren) – that they would remain safe and healthy until we can bring him/her home!
