Our caseworker from Bethany Christian contacted us this week to schedule our interviews. We have 3 interviews: 2 in Raleigh and 1 in our home. They will be for 3 consecutive Tuesdays in October (13th, 20th, & 27th). We will also be driving to Charlotte for a mandatory adoption seminar on October 23rd. So, it looks like our October will be rather busy, but we're so thrilled to continue moving forward! We also found out that after the last interview on Oct. 27th, that our caseworker has 30 days to close a case - to either approve or disapprove it (and Lord willing, we'll be approved of course)...which means that we should have our home study completed by Thanksgiving!!! I was hoping and praying that it would be done by Christmas, but Thanksgiving is even better!!! So, please keep us in your prayers as we continue down our path to embryo adoption - We would hope to have the actual transfer sometime at the first of the year...we'll see what God has in store for us!
I also want to give glory to God for the fact that we have enough money in our savings account to finish paying for our home study - Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our effort in saving a child's life thus far! We still haven't raised all that we need to include the cost of the transfer procedure itself, but we are quite confident that God will continue to provide in His time and way.
