WOHOO!!!!!!! We've received our Initial Approval...that means that we have to get our booties moving on our Dossier!

So far we've:
  • Met with our social worker to update our homestudy
  • Applied for Jacob's Passport (harder than you think, for most of the day yesterday we were in a panic because we couldn't find his Guatemalan birth certificate-probably the only document we could NEVER replace)
  • Got a medical statement on Jacob from his peditrician
  • Updated our autobiographies for the homestudy
  • Sent off our State Police Clearances (1 of three we need)
  • Began the process of refinancing our home to pay for all of this!

Left to do:


It's overwhelming, but we've got to stay focused :)

Precious baby brother is so worth it!

That's right...Jacob is going to be a big brother!!
Baby brother is living in an orpanage in China.
He is a precious 1 year old boy.
Please pray that baby brother is safe and loved until we can all be together!
