Paperwork Submitted!

By God's grace, on Friday, we submitted the final piece of paperwork from our packet! WooHoo! As overwhelming as it seemed at first, it's really not so difficult. I'm comparing this adoption process to a semester in college - when you first receive your syllabi and think that there's no way this will all get done in 4 months...That's how this feels. But, just like school work, God will equip us to get everything completed for this adoption process.

Now, it's more waiting... We have to wait for Bethany Christian to process the paperwork and get back with us on our next step. The waiting is hard, because as long as we're doing things on our end, I feel like we're moving forward, but when we are waiting for someone else on the other end and are at their mercy...it's more difficult to stay patient.

Other news is that my dad, step-mom, and little sisters came for a visit on Saturday - We enjoyed spending time with them! We love and miss you guys so much!

I'm glad that things are progressing for you! Praying that it will all be finished in His timing...and that He will give you the patience to wait and rest in Him.

Hi! We are a couple on the other side of the country (California) going through the adoption process with the NEDC and Bethany. I was so encouraged by reading your blog! We also just began our adoption journey at the end of July but it took us several years to come to our decision. Congrats on finishing your Bethany paperwork!!! Did you really finish it all in 14 days??? That is AMAZING! If you are interested in seeing how we are coming along in our journey our blog is www.deshack.blogspot.com Wish you both the best. I hope you don't mind me peeking into your life having never met you in person but we have much in common and it feels good to know that others are traveling the same path that we are. God bless!
