And just like that…

We are done with all three homestudies… umm.. I’m sorry, do what?

Yes, you heard correctly. Our profiles will be in by Dec. 24 and our social worker will start showing our profile to birthmothers.

I told some of my co-workers today that it’s gettin’ real. Like it could actually happen. We have had a list a mile long and have just been so focused on that, and it’s been all about checking things off. Now, we can actually be chosen! Ah! I  have crazy butterflies in my tummy knowing that we are getting closer and closer to our baby.


My heart could seriously explode.

Thanks again for all the prayers prayed tonight and everyday for us. We are so grateful for each of you.

I’ll leave you with the picture on the last page of our profile.

and just like that

I know, well played.


Things for baby

This is definitely becoming my favorite blog post. I am lovin’ picking up little things along the way for our sweet one. This time it’s things for the little one, plus a little update.

Here are a few of things I’ve collected over the past few days.

Where are we in the process?

*We completed our first home interview/get to know you meeting.

*We have completed the first official home-study.

*We have sent off our fingerprints. {Please pray we hear soon if they have been processed! This is a very important piece of the puzzle!}

*Our second home-study is Monday, November 18th. {Our autobiographies are due, and our social worker will conduct our individual interviews.}

*Our third home-study is scheduled for Dec. 16th!

After the third home-study and fingerprints, we will officially be waiting on our sweet little one.

That’s it for now. Praying each of you have a blessed night.
