"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

One down ...... One to go-

We had our first homestudy tonight-all went well and the kids actually were great-what a relief it is to have one done. Thank you to our dear friends Kris Thomas for helping me decorate my house and finally get it to look like people live here and to Adam's mom Tami for helping us with all the final details, hanging pictures, etc.-and my mom for helping with the kids the last few days and Tyra our babysitter for taking them swimming today-and Kristy for picking up the Pizza for us and having Jacob over to play today-We love you guys!
We had a crazy morning today with us riping out our carpet last night in Cassidy's room. I guess the puppy had wet on it several times, and when I cleaned it this week, it brought out all the odors. It was through the pad in a lot of places and into the wood. It was destroyed-It was more than horrible and smelling up the whole house, so, we took it out, bleached it, painted on Kiltz to seal it and called the people that put in the carpet ONLY 2 years ago, had them bring the cheapest carpet they could and install it all this morning, then we moved her stuff back in her room and no one knew the better! What we do sometimes! Oh, so if anyone wants to visit us, NOW would be the time-our house is so clean and picked up, it will never be so again. :)
So one more home study meeting on Wednesday and we should be done. Then she writes up her report which takes a couple weeks I think, then another lady reviews it, then we review it, and then it is noterized. Whew-then we apply for citizenship for our adopted child with the US and wait a couple more weeks-then we can get on the wait list for a referal of a baby girl. Wow, can't believe we are at this point.

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
