Well, this week marked some more exciting times towards the completion of our adoption process. Lots of paperwork, lots of waiting, lots of stuff to try to keep track of!

Tuesday, we finished up some initial paperwork and sent it on. We also made our first payment to our adoption agency. Sending that big chunk of dough made the whole thing feel real, that's for sure! Later that day, we shot down to the post office and turned in all our paperwork for Gina and Davi's passports. In just under 6 weeks or so, we should have the documents ready to be a family of legal international travelers!

Next week, we have our first meeting with the social worker to take steps to finish our home study. Hopefully this won't take too long since we have a fairly flexible schedule that allows us to schedule meetings during the day (we all know pastors only work on Sundays anyway, right?).

Please continue to pray for us as we continue down this path. It's uncharted territory for us, but we're confident this is where God is leading and we want, more than anything, to be right in the center of His will. Thanks!
