Home Study Update...Check!

We received our home study update in the mail this week, notarized and ready to go!  Now we just wait for the legal documents from Taiwan.  Nothing we can do about those but...wait!  So, we wait...

Slowly but surely we are coming, Sophia...

A Little Movement

It looks like our home study update will be finalized this week and hopefully we will have our notarized copies by the end of next week.  That just leaves the legal documents from Taiwan...and then we can get everything state sealed and off to our agency!  Every little bit of movement helps!

Slowly but surely we weave our way to Sophia...

I Know I Sound Like a Broken Record, But...

we're still waiting!  Right now we are waiting for the legal documents that we need to arrive from Taiwan and for our social worker to complete our home study update.  [Insert BIG sigh...]  All in God's perfect timing...but it's hard to wait!

Oh...and we found out that Sophia will get her care package next Tuesday, July 20.  I was hoping she already had it, but at least we know when she's supposed to get it, and can probably expect another update shortly after.

Trying really hard to find joy in the journey on these long summer days...

Please Pray...

...for a special envelope that was mailed today that we hope might help us raise some much needed funds to help bring Sophia home!

Every day is a day closer to Sophia!

From our Family Blog...

I published this today on our Family Blog...thought I would publish it here, too...

It is July already...hard to believe that half of 2010 is in the history books! By the end of this month, we are hoping to have a HUGE milestone completed toward our adoption of Sophia...our referral dossier in Taiwan awaiting our court date! God allowed us to complete all of the paperwork on our end in record time during the month of June, but we are still waiting for some legal paperwork to come from Taiwan. When that arrives, we sign, date, notarize, and state authenticate everything--and then it can be out of our hands and on its way to Taiwan! There is only one thing that can slow that down at this point...when we send our dossier back to Taiwan, the orphange fee needs to go with it. Right now we are still needing about $3000 to cover that expense. We know God is able to provide, and will provide in His time. Would you like to play a part in ransoming a child from a life as an orphan? Help us bring Sophia home
