Home Study Interview

Thursday's home study interview went well--thanks for your prayers! Our social worker took a guided tour of our home, led by Mr. Benjamin, who proudly showed off all of the rooms of our humble abode. Then, she talked with our two older boys, who didn't really do much talking, but that's how it goes with 11 and 13 year old boys who would rather be outside playing--and that was fine with me! She then finished up with some questions for me and Dave, and we discussed the fact that our agency has not been very cooperative thus far with providing needed paperwork to our social worker, so perhaps we need to find a different agency. That is a little nerve-wracking to me, but we want to be open to God's leading, so we are taking this next week to pray about this decision and research other agencies. We would covet your prayers on this!

Our funds are coming in slowly but surely. We now need to work on gathering the second half of the home study fee ($750) so that we can pay that when our home study is done. I have a lot of recipes to type into the database for our cookbook fundraiser, which I hope to have to the publisher in November, so that is moving along. We continue to try and get the word out about the ornaments and other gifts available here...I have colored flyers coming in the mail to help me with that endeavor. If you would like to help us get that word out to friend and family, please let me know, and I will gladly send you some flyers!

We are so grateful to family and friends who are keeping us in their prayers. May God richly bless you all!

Sophia Elizabeth thanks you, too!
