Update & Generosity

Things are going along wonderfully for us!  The LORD is moving, even when we can't see what He's up to!  I'll have a nice, big, juicy update in a month or so, I'm sure of it!  :)

We know that He knows our son by name. {Before I formed you, I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart..." Jeramiah 1:5}  And we know He is moving mountains to bring him home to us!   {I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20}

If you have specific questions, feel free to email us and either Matt or I will get back to you ASAP!

We do have some friends that have financial needs w/ their adoptions.
If the Lord has called you to help w/ donations, please visit these 2 blogs and click on their Donate buttons on the right-hand side.
{A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25}

Go here to help our dear friends The Leinens:

And here: - I just found this blog last week thanks to my friend Kari.  They own The Cupcake Lounge in Moore.

Love you guys,

Be still

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; 
                                I will be exalted among the nations,   
 I will be exalted in the earth.”

Fingerprints, take 3!

We were told last Thursday that our fingerprints were rejected, again.
*insert naughty words & lots of tears!!!*

Our Adoption Specialist told us we would now have to go to the OSBI to get fingerprinted by the FBI... WAHOOO, I was excited cause I knew the FBI wouldn't screw up, right?  She said we had to wait until we received our new fingerprint cards.

We received our new fingerprint cards on Saturday.

We went to the OSBI today.

The FBI guy that helped us said the prints looked really good!

Now we wait to make sure DHS agrees w/ them.  I ran to the Post Office super fast after
we were printed to mail them off, BUT today was Columbus Day, aka, PO is closed!
So we'll mail them off tomorrow!

Remaining hopeful that God is doing beautiful things behind the scenes,

Update 10.05.11

I promised myself, at the beginning of this adventure, to be as honest as possible on the Blog.
So for the record, I think we have turned a corner:
I called our Case Worker 3 times yesterday about something pretty neat, nerve wrecking, exciting, heart breaking, frustrating, exhilarating... and a host of other emotions and my sweet Case Worker answered ALL 3 times!!!

She was very understanding and calming.  I've decided that whatever happened in the past is staying in the past.  She's my Case Worker & we're on the same team!  

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
      Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
   I will strengthen you and help you.
      I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
                - Isaiah 41:10

Adoption Workshop #4 & updates

I forgot to blog about Adoption Workshop #4.
I can't even remember what it was about... see how informative those things are?!?!

We have one last workshop to make up, because we missed our last one due to going on Vacation.
And we have homework to get caught up on... because we have to turn it all in when we attend the last workshop.

No biggie.  It'll all get done in time!

I wanted to let ya'll know that our new social worker called me.  She told me I was given the wrong phone #.  She hadn't received any of my phone calls (why didn't the other social worker whose # I called pass along my messages?) She didn't mention anything about the emails I sent her even tho I have her correct email address...  But regardless, things are supposedly moving along "quite nicely" now.
We're supposed to get our first Home Study date "any day now" (as of 1.5 weeks ago).  :)
Can you sense my sarcasm?

A girl can be patient for so long... and then, she starts turning into momma bear...
And this momma is almost at that breaking point!
