So many people to thank...

So here's what's going on in the pursuit:
This week we are trying to get everything finished and sent in by Friday so that Kathy can finish writing the home study.
We have had some friends and family step up in some big ways this week to help us get this finished. God has blessed us with so many different people with different talents. Last night my brother, Chet, was here from the time he got off work until 10 pm measuring each room and drawing a scaled diagram of our house. Thankfully he is a talented guy who took some drafting classes with his pipefitting!
Today our friend, Chris Rayburn was here from 8 am to almost 11 am taking pictures of the inside and outside of our house. I mean this guy didn't just take pictures, he staged each room with extra lighting and the pictures are so good I want to sell my house almost.
Yesterday I went to the courthouse and got the 4 marriage certificates, my birth certificates, and Cory's birth certificates. Then I went to the vet to pick up Romo and Sophie's shot records so that we could send those in as well. My superintendent and Mrs. Carol got an employment letter for me, and Cory's sent one as well. My uncle who is a police officer is helping us get background checks going.
All in all its a busy time but things are going well.
Friday Cory and I both have doctor's appointments for physicals for the adoption. Not so excited about that but thankfully our doctor is Brandon and we know he will make sure that all of our paper work is done and turned in. We actually switched doctors so that we could have someone we know actually cares about our adoption in charge of sending all our medical papers in. (After being a nurse I know that many doctors have a tendency to lose paperwork.)
I am so thankful that so many people are so willing to help us. We could't do this alone and we can't believe how blessed we are. One day Jonah we read this and realize how blessed he was by so many people who hadn't even met him yet, but loved him already.

  1. Wow, we just heard the news this weekend when we were in Hull! We are SO excited for you both! When we looked into international adoption a few years ago, we, too, were overwhelmed by the mountain of paperwork that was required. God will surely make a way for you to get everything done in His perfect timing. Y'all are in our prayers and so is little Jonah. :)

    Much love,
