Today is Wednesday December 15 2010...not very different from any other day. Though we have made it extra exciting. We picked up our notarized documents from the police station and my dr. office, and Ryans drs forms came today! I am so excited to see what God's timing is going to be on bringing her/them home! This week we also received my birth certificate in the mail...but it was not After a nice talk with a very apologetic woman mine is now in the mail. Thank you Jesus for nice people! We are still waiting on my social security statement, once that has arrived we are ready for the HOMESTUDY!!!!! My Grandmother is graciously loaning us the $1500 for the fist payment of the homestudy so that we do not put it on a credit card. We are expecting a nice refund at tax time and she is willing to wait until then for her money back!

Thank you to everyone for you prayers. I cannot believe that we have been able to pay for everything so far, with no debt, plus continue to pay off the debt of Israels adoption expenses.

Also a huge PRAISE to God for allowing more work to come my way in this time of financial need! Last night I made $85 and tonight I made another $20ish...and have another $40 I can make tomorrow!!! KEEP IT COMING JESUS...I want my children home!

Love to all...

Faster then a...not sure :)

I cannot believe how fast things are happening!! I received my dossier instructions yesterday...and today I can check off a couple things already!! I had to ask out local police department to write a letter verifying that we are not criminals, lol, I call and talked to a wonderful secretary who had then ready for me BY NOON!! I dropped of my physical forms for the homestudy and adoption agencies, and did not need a new physical because of just having one for Israels adoption!! They called an hour later to let me know that THEY WERE READY!!! I also called the Maine department of Vital records to see how long the turn around on a birth certificate request is (online it says between 6 and 10 weeks). The awesome woman on the phone said "oh honey we would have that back to you in 5-7 business days, if that!" so the kids and I trotted off to the post office and the request has been sent! I called the Lancaster County Court House to request a certified copy of our marriage licence...thinking that this one would have to be the one to snag me on my all to productive day...the woman on the phone said she was processing it as we spoke and I could come pick it up at my earliest convenience!! I am not done yet!!! When Ryan got home he brought in the mail and in the mail was his SS statement, which was due to arrive in 3 weeks!!!!!!!!! I just cannot say enough HOW BIG IS MY GOD!!! I can feel the mountains moving and see the work of his hand! No one can stand in His way!!Oh and I deposited $168.00 into the adoption account today :) that just always makes me happy.

Thank you to everyone who is contnuing to pray for my WHOLE family! Another praise to through out there is that Everett just lost another TSS and we found out his BSC was also leaving so I called another agency and they are able to staff the BSC as of the 13th of Dec...that is amazing!

I received an e-mail today from WACAP stating that as long as we pass our homestudy we have their approval!! I am very excited that be now have a foot in the door that God directed us to. The agency did say that they would prefer to place a healthy child with us instead of a child with needs. I am just praying that their preference cannot interfere with God's plan ;). I am asking for continued prayers for our daughter and also for the financing for the adoption. The timeline for funds needed right now looks like this:

in about 4 weeks: $1,500 to homestudy agency
about 4-6 weeks after that $1,500 to homestudy agency
about 1 week after that about $1,000 to the government
at the approval of our homstudy $6,000 to WACAP


I am confident in God's plan and will not rest until Truth is here with us!!!!
