We had our first adoption information meeting at Bethany on Thursday! We didn't find out much more than we already knew about the domestic program, but we did learn a few things. Now we're just waiting for our preliminary application to get approved, and then we can move on to the Pre-Formal application, then the Formal application, and finally the home study! The lady that presented the meeting said to get ready for a LOT of paperwork! It is a very unpredictable program, some people wait years to be placed with a child, and others, just weeks! Romans 8:25 "But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it." This will definitely be a good lesson in patience for us!
We've made some progress on the baby room too! (Nothing worth taking a picture of though!) We repaired 2 big holes in the wall, and put a piece of new sheet rock on the ceiling. Dan cut a few pieces of baseboard today, and I have been painting the trim and casing. Just that little bit makes a big difference! I definitely have a vision of it in my mind, so I am really excited to see it completed!
Thank you to all who have been praying for us! It has been exciting to see all that the Lord has done thus far, and we're excited to see all that he will do!
