Do you know what this is?


This is the unofficial copy of our completed home study!!!!!

It's still unofficial because we got to read over it and mark any corrections that need to be made. We both finished reading (and marking it over with a red pen... I felt like such a teacher!) it tonight, so it is ready to be mailed back to our caseworker tomorrow. When she receives it, she will make the changes, and then she will call us to set up our final meeting. During this meeting, Steve and I, our caseworker, and her supervisor will all sign the final home study. At that point... we are officially approved by the Missouri Baptist Children's Home to adopt 1-2 babies!

It's wild to think that we are almost done with our part of this process. Once we are approved, we wait until a birth mother chooses to place her child with us. That could take months or years. There is no way to know. But we trust that the God who called us into this process in the first place will see us through it all. He has a plan, and we are trusting Him to carry it out in His way, and in His time.

Thank you for your continued prayers for our family!
