Short update in case you wonder (or even if you don't :))
We sent our first paperwork into Lifeline Adoption a few weeks ago. We had our first official conversation with our social worker there yesterday. Exciting stuff! Our next step is to find and contract with a home study agency and get that going. Along with that, the next step in the reams of paperwork will begin. My head's already spinning. I think it's time to obtain the BIG three ring binder and set up lots of dividers with brightly colored tabs!
I'm told the whole process from start of paperwork to hugging our child will take about a year. My friend who left Guangzhou, China yesterday says it was 1500 degrees there. Maybe she's exaggerating a little. We may be there this time next year!
Upcoming news: We have a Hand in Hand, Heart in Heart logo on it's way and some t-shirts in the works. Yippee!
Prayer requests: 1)We have to fill out paperwork telling the agency what special needs we'd be willing to accept. Such a tough question. Please pray for God's will to be evident. 2) Fees are due at every step from here on out. Please pray for God's perfect provision.
