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.



To say that our meeting with our social worker went well, is a total understatement. It was fabulous. She basically gave us an abbreviated overview of what the whole process looks like from now to when our baby is in our arms. Since I’ve talked to friends over the last couple of weeks, I feel like I had a pretty good idea of what’s coming, but there are certainly decisions that we have to make that I wasn’t aware of. It’s all good my friends. So good.

On Tuesday, we received our manual via email. If you’re wondering what it is like… just imagine going to class the first day of your college career and the professor putting a 100 page syllabus in front of you. Ha! Yes, it’s that long, but it just breaks down each homestudy and its requirements. {Definitely the greatest syllabus I’ve every gotten!}

What’s next, you ask?

We are in the process of gathering all of the paperwork for our first homestudy.. {Eeeek!!}  We are still discussing when this will actually happen because of schedules. Other than that, we are waiting to get our fingerprinting info in the mail. That’s the part of the process that supposedly takes the longest. We shall see.

I am fully aware that God is in control. I have relied on Him until now and I am soooo not going to stop now. Our miracle is just around the corner and I am just giddy with excitement and expectancy.

Our God is good, people.

The picture below pretty much puts a huge smile on my face.

Word to the wise….if you want to adopt at some point, go ahead and organize ALL of your legal documents in a container like this one. It will save you hours and hours.

As always, thanks for reading 🙂

Much love!
